Special journal issue on Reproducible Research Methodologies
IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing (TETC)

Will be published in a 2nd issue of 2015

IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing (TETC) seeks
original manuscripts for a Special Issue on Reproducible
Research Methodologies scheduled to appear in the 2nd Issue of

Computer science and engineering research fields increasingly
rely on numerous ad hoc methods to explore research
breakthroughs, particularly during empirical and statistical
analysis, modeling, optimization and simulation of complex
computer systems. These ad hoc methods are utilized due to a
variety of factors including problem complexity and size, speed
of advancement and return on investment, cost of designing
prototypes, and minimal access to state-of-the-art fabrication.
However, lack of a common experimental methodology, and lack of
simple and unified mechanisms, tools and repositories to
preserve and exchange the whole experimental setup including all
past research artifacts makes it excessively challenging or even
impossible to accurately reproduce experimental results for
evaluation and future advancement.

The special issue on reproducible research methodologies is an
invitation to papers covering topics in hardware and software
analysis, modeling, optimization, run-time adaptation,
simulation and co-design. Papers are solicited to address
scientific (and possibly interdisciplinary) methods to design
research environments, experimental methodologies, and gold
standards for trustable and reproducible research methodologies
in computer science and engineering disciplines. Further,
papers on public frameworks and repositories to preserve and
exchange research artifacts and experimental setups are also
encouraged. Detailed topics of interest include but are not
limited to:

* Techniques for experimental reproducibility
* Fidelity validation of experiments and tools
* Reproducible benchmarking methodologies
* Scientific method for computing experiments
* Techniques to effectively leverage emulation
* Scalable HPC computing in experimentation
* Metrics quantifying performance vs. fidelity
* Reproducible and extensible methodologies
* Data-mining, crowdsourcing analysis methods
* Interdisciplinary experimental methods
* Tool, benchmark, experiment repositories
* Program and architecture auto-tuning
* Reproducible simulation environments
* Experimental documentation methods
* Techniques to preserve/share experiments
* Methods to effectively analyze experiments
* Extracting metadata from experiments
* Methods for protecting intellectual property

Submitted articles must not have been previously published or
currently submitted for journal publication elsewhere. Extended
