In today’s Tips & Tricks post we explore the idea of practical reproducibility: how to make experiments not only reproducible but reproducible in a practical way, i.e. making it as natural to play with science as it is today to read about it via publications. To make this happen we need your help – your experiments packaged in a way that will allow others to easily build upon them by extending them. Let us know what you think!
The Call for Presentations at the Chameleon User Meeting is out! We invite you to share your resaerch as well as your experiences working with the Chameleon testbed! As in prior years, to facilitate this discussion we are soliciting proposals for brief presentations (15-20 minutes) based on your resaerch or education work with Chameleon. The deadline to submit presentation proposals is April, 3rd, 2023 and as in prior years the top ten submissions will be awarded travel support to the meeting.
We are hiring! Come and join the team to help us build and operate the kick-ass Chameleon experimental platform as well as develop new ideas in edge computing and reproducibility. You will be working on the bleeding edge, state-of-the-art technologies, evaluating and extending open source systems and tools, and developing new features -- and most importantly working with our amazing community of users who take our breath away every day with their cool resaerch ideas!
To all of you starting a new academic year – welcome back! To help you hit the ground running with your research we would like to share some tips and tricks on how to make your experiments on Chameleon more productive.
Using Chameleon for student interns, REUs or summer courses? Sign up for a series of webinars that introduce the platform, including CHI@Edge, the edge computing platform, on June 8th and 9th.
Increasingly more computer science systems conferences are using Chameleon for artifact evaluation. Learn more about how to use Chameleon for reproducibility; including tips both for organizers of these events and artifact authors.
The way you access the testbed will change -- for the bettter! You will be able to access the testbed via federated login allowing you to log in with your instritutional credentails or even your Google account -- read about the impact and schedule of this important change!
We are happy to announce that the Chameleon project has been extended for another 4 years!
That’s four more years of working with a creative and talented user community that always wants to go someplace impossible – and takes us with them!
The next four years will bring us integration with IoT, support for more innovative networking experiments, innovative new hardware, and even more support for reproducibility and experiment sharing. Read all about it in: https://www.cs.uchicago.edu/news/article/chameleon-phase-three/
We are SO looking forward to continuing to provide a platform for your research -- and learning about all the hot and cool things …
Welcome back -- we have some exciting activities to celebrate the new school year. As you settle in, don’t forget to pencil in our upcoming webinars.
