Scope of the Workshop

Materials informatics (MI) applies data science and AI methods to better understand the use, selection, development, and discovery of materials. It is used across the value chain, from upstream materials and chemicals developers to downstream product manufacturers. Innovation interest in materials informatics has grown exponentially over the past few years, though the technology faces significant data quantity, quality, and sharing challenges. While there is much research activity on materials informatics to possibly address the data challenges, there seems to be a missing link to bridge research outcomes with industrial implementation. This workshop aims to provide a venue for all interested parties (large corporations, government agencies, national laboratories, universities, and startups) to learn more about materials informatics, exchange ideas, and potentially to form partnerships.
