Reproducible Label

Reproducible Label logo

As researcher with a paper accepted to ICPR or one of its workshops, you had probably devote a part of your time to write code. The Reproducible Label propose to make profitable your efforts in software development in order to valorize your research results.

Who can apply for?

All authors of accepted RRPR and/or ICPR papers.

Why apply for?

The label proposed by the RRPR committee is an additional recognition of the work presented at the ICPR conference and ICPR Workshops. The label is a proof that your work can be reproduced from the git repository that will be indexed by RRPR. This is a major advantage for other researchers wanting to compare their works to yours: the label guarantees that the comparisons are performed with the author implementation used in the corresponding paper. Thereby, it is also a major advantage for you to be compared and cited by your colleagues.

Code and/or short paper

You have the choice between two kinds of contributions:

1) The first consists in submitting the source code used to generate the results of your accepted paper. Your code will be reviewed, i.e. we will try to compile them, to execute them and we will compare the obtained results with the results of your paper. If they are consistent, we will deliver to you the Reproducible Label and your source code will be indexed by the Label Repository.

2) The second kind of contribution is an extension of the first one. In addition to your source code, you can submit a short paper that will be reviewed in parallel to your source code. This short paper can describe:

  • some implementation details
  • how to choose your parameters
  • discussions about the code and experiments reproducibility

How to apply for?

1) For the source code, you need to provide an URL of a git repository (Github, Gitlab, etc.) containing:

  • the source code allowing to reproduce all experiments and/or figures of your paper,
  • a README.md file containing all compilation instructions.
  • a (set of) script file(s) allowing to install and execute your code,
  • a link or ref to the original associated paper.

2) About the short paper, the submission format should follow the LNCS Springer layout with length from 2 to 4 pages. The peer-review process will be blind.

All submissions should be uploaded through the EasyChair site.

When to apply?

1) Code only

  • Submission deadline: August 5th, 2018 (will be reviewed by submission order)

2) Code with short paper (contact us in case of difficulties)

  • Abstract deadline: July 25th, 2018
  • Full short paper + code deadline: August 5th, 2018
  • Author notification: August 15th, 2018
  • Camera-ready: August 20th, 2018

Which are the accepted languages/libraries/operating systems?

All languages and libraries are accepted. You just need to precise the used versions.
Concerning the operating systems, your code must compile on at least one of the followings:

  • Mac OSX 10.12 (Sierra) or later
  • Ubuntu 17.04 or later
  • Windows 10 or later

How will my code be reviewed?

The source code is NOT reviewed. We only follow the README instructions to compile the source code and execute the script(s). The results are compared to the paper results/figures and the label is given if they are identical. The list of "labelled papers" will be listed on this website and on the Label repository.
