We are excited to announce our third annual workshop for the Materials Project user community.
The two-day Materials Project Workshop will be held on Thursday, August 9th and Friday, August 10th, 2018, in 190 Doe Library on the University of California Berkeley campus. This workshop will focus on open-source software tools for data-driven computational materials science developed and maintained by the Materials Project. Industry users, faculty, and students are invited and encouraged to attend. Any revenue from the workshop will be used to fund developments of the Materials Project capabilities.
This is a hands-on workshop. In order to provide individualized support, space is limited to 40 participants on a first-come, first-served basis.
There will be an additional afternoon session on Wednesday, August 8th, for anyone interested in a primer on Python programming and the Jupyter notebook environment in order to prepare for the workshop.
Some feedback from last year’s workshop:
- “Great and easy to follow hands-on activities…Attentive team helped when people faced obstacles.”
- “Examples tackled are useful for my work.”
- “…was great for its tie into real-world research problems for explaining the thought process when writing code.”
- “Very good. It changed my perspective on how to do comp. mat. sci.”
- “All the lectures were very useful for me. I want to use all the tools!”
