Data-Centric Science for Materials Research


In recent years, the application of data-centric science has greatly impacted research and development in various disciplines and industries. In materials science, it is expected not only as a method for discovering useful novel substances among explosively increasing number of candidate materials, but also for classifying or understanding material properties and for analyzing experimental data. This symposium will be planned as a place to raise the discussion of researchers who are opening up research on materials using data-centric science with computer simulations or experiments.
