The bootcamp consists of four 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:
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.

Registration for the Machine Learning for Materials Research Boot Camp & Workshop on Autonomous Materials Research to be held August 5 - 9, 2019 at the University of Maryland includes attendance to program sessions, meeting materials, an Opening Reception on Monday evening, a Poster Reception & Banquet Dinner on Wednesday evening, and daily breakfast, lunch and refreshment breaks Monday through Friday.
General Attendee $500
Student Attendee $300
The annual poster session on Wednesday evening will be titled "Machine Learn This!" Bring a poster with your favorite/latest work*, and we will discuss how it can be analyzed using machine learning. Posters can be on any material related topic. Posters can begin to be set up after lunch on Wednesday and must be taken down at the conclusion of the Banquet Dinner. Easels will be provided.
*Registrants will be asked if they plan to present a poster during the Poster Reception on Wednesday via this online registration form.
