The History of ACM REP

The ACM REP evolved from the International Workshop on Practical Reproducible Evaluation of Computer Systems (P-RECS) which was started by Ivo Jimenez, Carlos Maltzahn, and Jay Lofstead in 2018 in cooperation with ACM SIGHPC, co-located with the International Symposium on High-Performance Parallel and Distributed Computing (HPDC), and followed by four editions in 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022, all co-located with HPDC. Since 2019 P-RECS was the annual forum for the ACM Emerging Interest Group for Reproducibility and Replicability (EIGREP). In 2023 P-RECS merged into ACM REP as part of the effort of advancing EIGREP to a Special Interest Group (SIGREP).
