As in previous years, authors of accepted papers will be invited to participate in an artifact evaluation (AE) process. The goal of the AE process is to improve the reproducibility of results and reusability of the systems, tools, and other research artifacts underlying the papers published at RTAS. Besides being good scientific practice, a well-documented, easy to reuse artifact also stands to greatly improve a paper’s longterm impact.
While participation in the AE process is voluntary, we strongly encourage all authors of accepted papers to make their work as reproducible and reusable as possible, and to prepare an artifact submission to this end. The artifact submission deadline is January 11, 2019.
Further details, including detailed evaluation criteria, may be found on the Artifact Evaluation page.
Acceptance/rejection notifications will be sent tomorrow (December 21, 2018).
