Keynote Address: Victoria Stodden

Victoria is an assistant professor of Statistics at Columbia University. She completed her PhD in statistics and her law degree at Stanford University. Her research centers on the multifaceted problem of enabling reproducibility in computational science. This includes studying adequacy and robustness in replicated results, designing and implementing validation systems, developing standards of openness for data and code sharing, and resolving legal and policy barriers. She is the developer of the award winning "Reproducible Research Standard," a suite of open licensing recommendations for the dissemination of computational results.

She is a co-founder of, an open platform for disseminating the code and data associated with published results, and enabling independent and public cloud-based verification of methods and findings.

She is the creator and curator of SparseLab, a collaborative platform for reproducible computational research in underdetermined systems.

Veida Elliot
REDCap Administrator & Program Coordinator
Vanderbilt Institute for Clinical and Translational Research

REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a secure, web-based application designed to support data capture for research studies, providing: 1) an intuitive interface for validated data entry; 2) audit trails for tracking data manipulation and export procedures; 3) automated export procedures for seamless data downloads to common statistical packages; and 4) procedures for importing data from external sources.

Melissa Haendel, PhD
Ontologist for eagle-i
Oregon Health & Science University Library
Department of Medical Informatics & Clinical Epidemiology

eagle-i is an innovative suite of applications that makes it easy to both discover and share biomedical resources at participating universities, helping investigators accelerate their research and collaborate. The platform is semantically engineered for maximal linking of research resources to other biomedical entities. eagle-i is working with VIVO to build a common ontology to further support research profiling leveraging data across the two systems.
