Past events

  • MARVEL Distinguished Lecture — Sharon Glotzer

    Feb 08, 2022, from 16:00 until 17:15, Zoom

  • MADICES workshop 2022

    Feb 07, 2022, 14:00 until Feb 09, 2022, 16:30, Online

    This CECAM workshop is devoted to machine-actionable data interoperability for chemical sciences (MADICES): bridging experiments, simulations, and machine learning for spectral data. Developers, scientists, and data specialists will be brought together to discuss the hurdles and opportunities of data interoperability in the context of the chemical and materials sciences. We will strive for general technical recommendations, with X-ray absorption spectroscopy as the prototype use case.
