First NOMAD Academic Workshop


First NOMAD Academic Workshop "Towards a Common Format for Computational Materials Science Data"
Lausanne, January 25 to January 27 2016 (first part: discussion and decisions) and January 27 to February 5 2016 (second part: implementation)

We're excited to host the first of our Academic Workshops in Lausanne! The workshop focused on working towards a common format for computational materials science data, and was held over two sessions, focusing on discussion (25 - 27 Jan) and implementation (27 Jan - 05 Feb).

SCOPE


Information and data exchange is an essential requirement for today's scientific progress. The software used in the theoretical materials science community urgently needs to support and facilitate these modern aspects. A prerequisite for seamless data exchange across electronic structure program frameworks is standardization, i.e., well-defined reference physical quantities, representations, and data formats. To realize this goal, we propose a two-part workshop (2.5 + 8.5 days) to discuss the specifications with leading electronic structure code developers and consequently to implement a software library that enables standardisation of materials science data.
