"Scientific Excellence for Climate Sciences"

How to deliver (and offer) scientific work in good, if not excellent quality

6 and 7 June 2019, Hotel Aeschi Park, Aeschi b. Spiez


The replicability crisis in science, combined with ever more powerful information and communication technology ICT, is about to revolutionize the quality standards for scientific work, e.g. regarding code, data, or texts. It has already changed policies of grant committees and science foundations, for instance. The YRM 2019 provides views on what scientific excellence is or should be in this transient context. It also offers hands-on workshops on ICT tools for reproducible code and data management, and on concepts for clear and persuasive argumentation in scientific texts.
