Mixed-gen Session 4: Data Driven Science
Online meeting - hosted by CECAM-HQ
This is the forth of a series of on line events aimed mainly at PhD students and researchers in their first post-doc. Our goal is to provide a new venue for these young scientists to share their work, get expert feedback and have an opportunity to strengthen scientific relations within the CECAM community.
The event is fully on line and will have two parts. In the first, broadcasted as a Zoom webinar, Prof. Julia Yeomans, University of Oxford, will present a general talk in the area of activated events (title and abstract below). This will be followed by seminars given by two young members of the community to describe their work in the same area. In the second part of the event, we shall move to a virtual poster session hosted in a Gather room where more PhD students and researchers in their first post-doc will present pertinent projects. The session’s speaker and other (surprise) expert guests will join us for this poster session to discuss exciting new science.
If you are a PhD student or a post-doc:
Please use the Participate Tab on this page to start the application. You will have to login using your CECAM account to access the application form. If you don't have a CECAM account yet, use the register option on the top right corner of the login page...and welcome to CECAM!
If you are a more senior scientist:
Please contact the organisers and we shall process your registration.
Submission of posters
(Please note that - at least for the time being - we shall accept posters only from PhD students or researchers in their first post-doc)
After your application is accepted, you will be able to submit a poster. In the CECAM page for this event, go to “my participation” tab and click on “Add a poster”, providing in particular title and abstract following the recommended format. Then, please upload the poster file in png or jpg by clicking on “Add a file”. These formats are strict to enable showing of the poster in the Gather session. Please upload your poster as soon as possible to enable a decision from the selection committee - see below.
Please note that posters will be visible on the Gather room associated with this session until the end of the series (July 2021) unless otherwise requested.
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: TEN DAYS BEFORE THE EVENT
Selection of posters
Posters will be selected by the event organisers with the support of our main speaker and experts who will take place in the poster session.
Selection of the two talks by PhD or first year postdocs
These contributions, to be broadcasted in the Zoom webinar in the first part of the event, will be selected, after a preliminary screening by the organisers, the main speaker and guest experts, via a lottery from the posters selected for the Gather session. Please indicate in your application if you DO NOT WANT your poster to be considered for this lottery.
THE DECISION ON THE POSTER AND THE OUTCOME OF THE LOTTERY SELECTION WILL BE COMMUNICATED ONE WEEK BEFORE THE EVENT
POSTER SUBMISSIONS BEYOND THIS DEADLINE WILL BE ACCEPTED BUT NOT CONSIDERED FOR UPGRADE TO TALK. SUBMISSION WILL BE DEFINITELY CLOSED FOUR DAYS BEFORE THE EVENT.
SESSION 4. Title and abstract of talks
From data to knowledge
Claudia Draxl, Humboldt University Berlin
Research data paired with Artificial Intelligence (AI) enable a new quality of science. The ultimate goal in our research domain is to predict novel candidate materials for a given application, possibly even in regions of the materials space that no-one would think of. For a real breakthrough, key prerequisites have to be brought together: Data – not only Big but most relevant and reliable – and novel AI tools with predictive power. In this session, we will review where we are on this road. A special focus will be on recently-developed data-analysis tools.
