Title: Doing Reproducible Research Unconsciously: Higher Standard, but Less Work
Author(s): Yihui Xie*+
Companies: Rstudio
Keywords: Reproducible research ; knitr ; R language ; RStudio ; Dynamic document ; Statistical computing

Traditionally we finish statistical computing before writing reports, and the results written into the reports are essentially "dead". To update the reports, we have to redo computing. In this talk, we introduce live documents that generate reports directly, with results dynamically obtained from computer code. We show how we can change the research workflow and present results in new ways with the help of tools such as RStudio + knitr and modern technologies like HTML5 and WebSockets. Reproducible research should be so natural that we do not even notice it.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
