   Nicolas Limare will represent IPOL in the R4 meeting on
   reproducible research ("Rencontre de Réflexion autour de la
   Recherche Reproductible"), Thursday April 5th, at the Orleans
   University. Participation is free but registration is required.

   Excerpt from the program:

     Reproducibility in computational science now seems to capture
     everyone's attention. Considerations about the reliability of the
     numerical results published in scientific journals appear in
     diverse fields.

     These efforts are essential to go beyond a credibility crisis in
     all disciplines where numerical results are important in the
     results published. No one today can guarantee the validity of
     most results presented at conferences and in research
     articles. Even the mature branches of science, despite their best
     efforts, sometimes suffer from problems of numerical errors
     affecting the final conclusions of the scientific
     literature. However, the traditional scientific publication alone
     does not determine the origin of these errors. This is why new
     standards of verifiability must be developed.

     The objective of this first meeting is to compare points of view
     of scientific disciplines on the notion of reproducibility and
     identify various initiatives. Beyond the specific diagnosis for
     each discipline, it will identify some common issues and discuss
     solutions that can emerge around the concept of executable paper.
