DMR-2D PI's Workshop For Materials Data Science 

This DMR-2D Data Framework Kick-Off Meeting for PIs was organized by the Platform for the Accelerated Realization, Analysis, and Discovery of Interface Materials (PARADIM), an NSF Materials Innovation Platform (MIP). This workshop, together with the corresponding DMR-2D workshop for young scientists also organized by PARADIM and run in November 2018 (link to workshop 1), kicked off the DMR-2D data framework effort, laying the foundation for follow up data workshops and the November 2019 Summit on Big Data and Cyberinfrastructure in Materials Research by identifying a set of key questions and challenges for data in materials science. This activity contributed directly to achieving the NSF Big Idea to Harness the Data Infrastructure.
