Overview

Knowledgeable researchers are essential to improving the reproducibility of biomedical modeling. Therefore, the center is actively involving in advocating for reproducible modeling, disseminating information about reproducible modeling, and training researchers how to conduct modeling reproducibly through publishing a newsletter and organizing workshops and meetings.

Dissemination

  • The center publishes a quarterly newsletter on advances in reproducible modeling by collating news from each project and from the broader community.
  • The center disseminates information on standards, reproducibility and workflows to related modeling communities such as the biomechanical and multiscale modeling communities.
  • The center provides extensive documentation and tutorials on its tools.

Advocacy and training

  • The center organizes meetings, such as the annual COMBINE meetings, to promote and catalyze reproducible modeling, including the use of standards, provenance tracking, and model annotation.
  • The center organizes competitions to gather and distill best practices from the modeling community.
  • The center recruits journals to use the center’s annotation and online simulation and visualization services.
  • The center organizes summer schools on scalable and reproducible modeling.
  • The center presents tutorials on reproducible modeling at conferences.
  • The center is developing online, self-service training materials on scalable and reproducible modeling.
