Welcome to the website of the 2nd Workshop on E-science ReseaRch leading tO negative Results (ERROR). The workshop will be held in conjunction with the 12th eScience conference on October 23-27, 2016, in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.
The ERROR workshop aims at providing a forum for researchers who have invested significant efforts in a piece of work that failed to bear the expected fruit. The workshop will provide the community a dedicated and active forum for exchanging cross-discipline experiences in research leading to negative results. The focus is on various aspects of negative results, such as premises and assumptions made, divergence between expected and actual outcomes, possible causes and remedial actions to avoid or prevent such situations, and possible course corrections. Both applications and systems areas are covered, including topics in research methodology, reproducibility, the applications/systems interface, resilience, fault tolerance and social problems in computational science, and other relevant areas. We invite original work in an accessible format of 6 pages.
