Reproducible research was first coined by Pr. Jon Claerbout, professor of geophysics at Stanford University, to describe that the results from researches can be replicated by other scientists by making available data, procedures, materials and the computational environment on which these results were produced from.

This workshop intends to describe reproducible research, what it is and why you should care about it, and how to do it with the combination of R, LATEX, Sweave and makefile. Tips and tricks will also be provided.

Learning Objectives:

To get introduce to the concept of reproducible research,
To get started with the implementation of reproducible research with R and Sweave,
To produce a first Sweave document in LATEX.
