  author={Dror G. Feitelson},
The culture of computer science emphasizes novelty and self -containment, leading to a fragmentation where each research project strives to creat e its own unique world. This approach is quite distinct from experimentation as it is known in other sciences — i.e. based on observations, hypothesis testing, and reproducibility — that is based on a presupposed common world. But there are many cases in which such experime ntal procedures can lead to interesting research results even in computer… CONTINUE READING
