NOMAD has launched a crowd-sourced data-analytics competition for transparent conducting oxides with Kaggle, the most famous data science platform for predictive modelling and analytics competitions. The challenge is to build predictive models for both formation and bandgap energies for a dataset, obtained by DFT calculations, consisting of binary, ternary and quaternary group-III oxides.  

The winners will share a prize of 5,000€ and will be invited to NOMAD Summer 2018, the CECAM conference organized by NOMAD in Lausanne (September 2018).

February 8, 2018 - Entry and team merger deadline.
February 15, 2018 - Final submission deadline.

Get Involved



NOMAD Junior Ambassadors

Junior ambassadors are high-school and undergraduate students who promote NOMAD to the young general public. They have joined NOMAD Encyclopedia Coding Parties and supported the NOMAD team at the Long Night of Sciences.

NOMAD Senior Ambassadors

Senior ambassadors are NOMAD researchers involved in outreach in their communities. For example, Georg Huhs visited HTBLA Kaindorf, Austria on 31 October 2017 to talk about NOMAD and the life of a scientist.

NOMAD is advancing our understanding of materials that could be used to solve many global challenges. In a recent paper, the NOMAD team at UB studied nanoparticles that may someday be used to generate clean energy (O. Lamiel-Garcia, K. C. Ko, J. Y. Lee, S. T. Bromley, F. Illas, J. Chem. Theory and Comput., 13 1785 (2017)).
