Registration Grants for Reproducibility Hackathon at the IC2E Conference

We are delighted to offer a limited number of registration reimbursement grants for the upcoming Practical Reproducibility Tutorial/Hackathon at the IC2E Conference, which takes place in Boston, MA on September 25, 2023. Read on for details of this offer and how to apply.

Announcing Reproducibility Hackathon at the IC2E Conference

We hope to see you all on September 25th in Boston!

Calling all Chameleon users interested in reproducibiliity! As you have seen in our last month's changelog we are trying to make reproducible experiments on Chameleon more visible -- and now we are also organizing a hackathon that will help you package your results to be easy to reproduce on Chameleon via Trovi. Please, take a look and see if you can join us in Boston for a day of good ideas, good discussion, and good fun making experiments (including your experiments) more accessible! 

Chameleon Changelog for May 2023

This month was all about trying to understand better how our users use Chameleon  for research and education. We were delighted to see many of you at University of Chicago for the Chameleon User Meeting and even more wowed when we assembled together all the amazing research papers produced by our community. 

Announcing Chameleon User Meeting Keynote: Fraida Fund will Talk about Teaching with Testbeds

We are delighted to announce the keynote speaker for the Chameleon User Meeting: Fraida Fund will give a keynote entitled "A Roadmap to Deeper Learning Using Research Infrastructure". Fraida is a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at NYU Tandon School of Engineering and has extensive experience in using open access experimental platforms for research as well as teaching. She will share with us several ways to use experimental research infrastructure to create meaningful and engaging experiential learning opportunities.

The Practical Reproducibility Opportunity

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!

Chameleon User Meeting: Call for Presentations is up!

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. 

Come and Join the Chameleon Team!

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! 


Experiment Patterns: Making Complex Experiments Easy

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.

Summer with Chameleon

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. 

Using Chameleon for Artifact Evaluation

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.
