RDA/CODATA Materials Data, Infrastructure & Interoperability IG

IG

Group details

Chair(s): 
James A. Warren, Laura M. Bartolo
 

Status: Recognised & Endorsed

The development of advanced materials inherently rests on access to a distributed materials infrastructure and materials research data to fuel discovery and innovation.  RDA aims to accelerate and facilitate research data sharing and exchange. Similarly, CODATA works to strengthen international science for the benefit of society by promoting improved scientific and technical data management and use.  Given these complementary missions, this RDA IG and the CODATA TG will work together under the following statement in support of the exchange of material data.  

The success of the scientific endeavor rests on the foundation of free and open exchange of ideas and supporting data.   We believe this kind of exchange with computational and experimental materials data through shared online repositories, standardized formats and terminologies and open programming interfaces is essential to accelerating the discovery, design, and development of advanced materials.  Making this data widely and freely available, as a "public good", creates increased opportunities for conducting fundamental research while facilitating potential commercial development activity of data-based services, tools, and applications.  It therefore follows that it is in the scientific and economic interest of all countries to operate under this framework of free and open data exchange to the greatest extent possible, in such cases where it does not infringe on intellectual property  or national security.

Call for Abstracts - American Chemical Society (ACS) Division of Chemical Information (CINF)

Building on the success of the 2016 Chemistry Data Summit (held at the 2016 Spring ACS Meeting), CINF is planning a Materials Data Summit for the 2017 Spring ACS meeting in San Francisco, April 2-6. Multiple sessions will pull in papers across informatics disciplines to discuss common problems and highlight technical advances in handling data, and how cheminformatics can contribute to materials research and applications.

Request for information and participation in RDA Data Formats session

Hello PaNSIG and MDIIIG members,
In preparation for the upcoming RDA 8th Plenary in Denver, I am collecting instances of "HDF in the wild". That is, I want to know how you are using HDF, what conventions and wrappers you may be using around it, and are there ways to improve its usability for your community. I am asking you to provide me a few brief bits of information that I can include in a presentation to prepare us for a discussion on this topic.
