Past Events

Opportunities in Materials Informatics
Feb. 9-10, 2015 at the Lowell/Pyle Center, University of Wisconsin-Madison

The goal of this workshop is to highlight exciting applications of informatics in materials science to engage both materials and data scientists in a more integrated community. The workshop will be a brainstorming oriented event with a small number of speakers and plenty of discussion, and we expect it to yield both novel ideas and cross-disciplinary collaborations.
