Haiyan Meng presented our work on Preservation Framework for Computational Reproducibility at the International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS) in Reykjavik, Iceland. This is a collaborative work between University of Notre Dame and University of Chicago for the DASPOS project both of these two universities are working on.
The preservation framework proposed in this paper includes three parts:
- First, how to use light-weight application-level virtualization techniques to create a reduced package which only includes all the necessary dependencies;
- Second, how to organize the data storage archive to preserve these packages;
- Third, how to distribute applications through standard software delivery mechanisms like Docker and deploy applications through flexible deployment mechanisms such as Parrot, PTU, Docker, and chroot.
