Abstract

Software engineering research is becoming increasingly difficult to perform, due to the need for extensive software development activities to prototype and evaluate complex research hypotheses.  Often researchers spend significant efforts implementing large software systems, which get little re-use after a research paper is submitted.  Collaboratories where researchers share their research artifacts with each other can lessen this problem, by providing existing, vetted artifacts for the researcher to re-use. This also allows more easily sharing artifacts, aiding reproducibility in research.
