We are excited to announce our fifth annual workshop for the Materials Project user community.
The two-day Materials Project Workshop will be held on Wednesday, July 29th and Thursday, July 30th, 2020, in the Banatao Auditorium (310 Sutardja Dai Hall) at the University of California Berkeley campus. We’ll also offer optional primer sessions on the Jupyter notebook environment, Python programming, and MongoDB databases the day before, Tuesday, July 28th, in the same location.
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. We will also offer an optional poster session during lunch and breaks to encourage future collaboration amongst participants. 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 60 participants on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Some feedback from last year’s workshop:
- “I learned a lot at the workshop in general. It was a good way to get a grip on how all the parts of the Materials Project interface together!”
- “Advanced case studies, designing materials help you learn how to actually write the code in a better fashion.”
- “I liked the on-the-fly computer coding during the workshop! Fixing problems when you see it not after.”
- “Following along with the online notebooks is a great way to learn interactively!”
- “Great, clear, self-contained, relevant examples.”
