We are excited to announce our second annual workshop for the Materials Project user community.
The two-day Materials Project Workshop will be held on Thursday, August 10th and Friday, August 11th, 2017, 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. The workshop will also touch on the management of complex computational workflows at super-computing clusters. This is a topic which may be of interest to those outside materials science, but will not be the focus of this workshop. 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 day, Wednesday, August 9th 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:
- “Nice hands-on intro…I could try things out specific to my work during the examples…immediately applicable.”
- “Good showcase of the types of work that can be done with the tools available.”
- “Not a computational materials scientist…I wasn’t sure if I will be able to follow it. But it’s turning out to be extremely useful.”
- “Really like the pre-set-up Jupyter server!”
- “Pymatgen + MPRester is awesome!”
