University of Maryland, College Park


Information for Attendees


We have added information for attendees to prepare for the bootcamp. Please check the info page!

Poster Session


We will have a poster session Thursday (6/29) night. We would like this to be an open forum to discuss how we can apply machine learning to a variety of materials science projects. Please bring a poster on one of your work.

The bootcamp consists of three days of lectures and hands-on exercises covering a range of data analysis topics from data pre-processing through advanced machine learning analysis techniques. Example topics include:

  • Identifying important features in complex/high dimensional data
  • Visualizing high dimensional data to facilitate user analysis.
  • Identifying the fabrication 'descriptors' that best predict variance in functional properties.
  • Quantifying similarities between materials using complex/high dimensional data

The hands-on exercises will focus on demonstrating practical use of machine learning tools on real materials data. Attendees will learn to analyze a range of data types from scalar properties such as material hardness to high dimensional spectra and micrographs.


The workshop will feature talks by top researchers in the field as well as open discussions in which attendees can discuss their data analysis needs with experts. Program for the Workshop is to be announced on a later date.
