NOMAD Workshop on Data-centric Cruising for New and Novel Materials,
Mechanisms, and Insights

Kiel, Germany, September 17-21, 2023



Scope of the Workshop

The workshop will cover a comprehensive discussion of basic methods and applications in the field of novel materials discovery and materials genomics. This includes density-functional theory and many-electron quantum mechanics and developments of multiscale approaches. The latter, is summarized by the appeal "Get Real!", introducing environmental factors (e. g. partial pressures, deposition rates, and temperature) into ab initio calculations. A particular focus of the workshop will be on data-centric scientific concepts and methods (the 4th paradigm of materials science) and the goal that materials-science data must become "Findable and Artificial Intelligence Ready".

The Workshop is aimed at graduate students and postdocs working in the wider field of our NOMAD activities.
