Survey on Attitudes Towards Reproducibility and Open Science in Simulation Publishing

Category : News

There is a survey being carried out to capture attitudes of our Modelling & Simulation (M&S) community towards both Reproducibility and Open Science in simulation publishing.

There are major concerns that the results in many published peer-reviewed articles cannot be reproduced or verified independently.  Some journals are changing their policies to address these issues. Open Science approaches go further in that they encourage the open sharing of scientific artefacts (e.g. data, software, methods, processes, etc.) under appropriate terms and conditions to enable reuse, redistribution and reproduction of the research and its underlying data and methods.  Publishing policies in both Reproducibility and Open Science could have a major impact on how we approach M&S research in the future.

The survey consists of six sections and will take around 20-25 minutes to complete. The results will be published as both a report and a journal paper. Both will be open access.

The survey will be open until December 2018.

Past Event: Resilient cities

Category : Uncategorized

THEME : Building resilient cities through simulation (including System Dynamics)

VENUE: THINKLab pod, University of Salford, 7th Floor Maxwell Building, The Crescent, Salford, Greater Manchester, M5 4WT

DATE:     Thursday 6th July 2017

TIME:     1:30 to 5:00pm

Description:

A summer network event was held at the University of Salford, hosted by the ThinkLab and organized by the UK Chapter’s student representative, Hisham Tariq. It was titled “Resilient Cities” and attended by over 20 people. The event provided an interdisciplinary opportunity to discuss the application of SD to the significant challenges facing our cities, an opportunity for networking, and introduced SD to students and members of the faculty at Salford.


Past Event: System Dynamics in Climate Change Mitigation

System Dynamics in Climate Change Mitigation

The UK Chapter of the System Dynamics Society held a network meeting on the theme of system dynamics in climate change mitigation. The meeting was held on December 5th, from 1pm to 5pm, at the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change.

The meeting began with four speakers: Prof Frank Boons talked on the relationship of circular economy and climate change, Dr John Broderick about his experiences in running the C-ROADS climate model, Dr Martin Reynolds from the OU about critical systems thinking and sustainability, and Dr Danial Schien presented work on modelling of the carbon footprint of digital media.

There was a short plenary in which examples of mitigation (both successful and otherwise) that are of interest to participants were identified. Groups then explored their chosen example through causal loop diagramming and other SD related methods.
