Room 404


Today, there is no shortage of information about materials in handbooks, reports and on the internet. If you want to go deeper into the properties of materials though, and understand how these can be exploited and modified, this information is not always accessible or inspiring. Our approach is to interactively and visually promote materials knowledge and understanding in academia and in industrial R&D. In this presentation, we show examples of how to find and use materials-related data as well as how to visualize and present materials knowledge or concepts using the software. This presentation focuses on three types of applications: teaching, research and data management. The aim of the seminar is to showcase the databases and tools for visualization, comparison and materials-related decision-making.

There will be time for participants to ask questions and stay afterwards for a brief demonstration or a discussion.
