2018 Materials Project Workshop

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!”
