TMS Town Hall Meeting (February 17, 2016)

This meeting of the “Rise of Data in Materials Reseach” project was held during the 2016 TMS Annual Meeting in Nashville, TN on Wednesday, February 17, 2016.

Meeting oranizers
Ellad B. Tadmor and Ryan S. Elliott (University of Minnesota).
Funding provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society (TMS).

As explained in the Background section, materials research is in a state of flux as it grapples with how to address the technical, ethical, and philosophical issues associated with the increasing prominence of data in materials research. These topics were discussed by working groups at a 2-day workshop at UMD in June 2015.

This town hall meeting was free and open to anyone (whether registered for the TMS meeting or not) interested in expressing an opinion on the role of data in materials research.
