I’m participating in a panel at the upcoming virtual Dataverse Community Meeting (https://projects.iq.harvard.edu/dcm2020/agenda) and we are looking for a guest speaker who would be interested in talking briefly (~10 minutes + Q&A) about the current Binder vision as it relates to preserving computational environments in research repositories.
Breakout Session: Encapsulation
June 18th, 3-4:30pm ET
In this session, we will have a discussion on what is an adequate and sustainable way to deposit and store virtual containers and computational workflows. This is a complicated issue because, on the one hand, it is not economical to store whole Docker images in Dataverse, and on the other hand, Dockerfiles are prone to errors. We will use recent development on Dataverse described in https://arxiv.org/abs/2005.02985 as a starting point for this session.
These short talks would touch on how they relate to:
- Computational reproducibility
- Discoverability and reuse (FAIR etc)
- Potential ties and applications in data repositories (such as Dataverse, Zenodo)
Sorry for the short notice. Let me know if interested.
