Second Call for Submissions: RRRR 2022
1st Workshop on Reproducibility and Replication of Research Results
April 2, 2022, as a satellite event of ETAPS 2022 in Munich, Germany


RRRR provides a forum to present novel approaches to foster reproducibility of research results, and replication studies of existing work, in the broad area of formal methods research. Its goal is to spread the word on best practices, and reward the work invested in replicating results. Where reproducible research can be independently confirmed by third parties using artifacts provided by the original authors, replicating a result means to independently obtain it using new measurements, data, or implementations. RRRR will improve the knowledge transfer between the many separate initiatives – like artifact evaluations and tool competitions – that today support reproducibility, and provide a venue to formally publish replication studies, recognising their immense benefit to the scientific community and the hard work involved. 


Submissions should be related to research in the broad area of formal methods that would be in scope for one of the ETAPS conferences in principle. Submissions will be handled via EasyChair. All accepted submissions will be collected in informal pre-proceedings.

Submissions are encouraged in, but not limited to, two main topics:
* Reproducibility: Presentations of novel developments in, or retrospective studies on, reproducibility initiatives.
* Replication: Reports on successful or failed attempts at replicating other authors' earlier research results.

RRRR accepts two types of submissions:
* Presentation abstracts (1-2 pages in LNCS style including references):
  These may cover work in progress, or summarise work recently published elsewhere.
* Short papers (around 6 pages in LNCS style plus references):
  These should describe finished, not-yet-published work.

The page limits are to be interpreted as guidelines, not as absolute limits. Authors of all accepted submissions will present their work at the workshop. We encourage demonstrations to be integrated in presentations, in particular for replication studies. 


Authors of accepted papers and abstracts will be invited to submit an extended/full version of their work to a special issue in the International Journal on Software Tools for Technology Transfer (STTT). Where applicable, we expect these journal submissions to be accompanied by an artifact for reproduction that will be permanently archived with a DOI upon publication. All journal submissions will undergo a full reviewing process. 


* February 24: **EXTENDED** Submission deadline for short papers and presentation abstracts
* March 3: Acceptance notification
* March 17: Final versions for informal pre-proceedings
* April 2: Workshop day

All dates are in 2022 and all deadlines are "anywhere on Earth" (UTC-12). The organisers would appreciate an early informal indication, via email, of the intention to submit to RRRR 2022.
