Scientific honesty and the observance of the principles of good scientific practice are essential in all scientific work which seeks to expand our knowledge and which is intended to earn respect from the public. The principles of good scientific practice can be violated in many ways – from a lack of care in the application of scientific methods or in documenting data, to serious scientific misconduct through deliberate falsification or deceit. Every Ph.D. student should have a professional understanding of these topics.
This Responsible Conduct in Research workshop will provide an introduction to these important topics, with subject-specific input from senior IMPRS-IS and CLS researchers. Participants should attend the whole workshop.
Date: Wednesday, November 23, 2022
Time: 13:00 p.m. - 17:00 p.m. CET
Location: Remote via Zoom
Organizers: Dr. Sarah Danes (CLS Coordinator) and Dr. Michael Mühlebach (Group Leader and Scientific Ombudsperson at MPI-IS Tübingen)
Interactive sessions will guide participants through these important topics:
• Sources of guidance on good scientific practice
• Working relationships and collaboration between colleagues
• Data manipulation and storage
• Authorship and publishing
• Scientific misconduct
• Local arrangements supporting integrity and good scientific practice.
This will lead into a panel discussion on examples of good scientific practice in research on intelligent systems.
Panelists: Prof. Dr. Robert C. Williamson (University of Tübingen), Prof. Otmar Hilliges (ETH Zurich) and Prof. Christoph M. Keplinger (MPI for Intelligent Systems).
