    TMS 2011 Lunchtime Learning: Materials Cyberinfrastructure
    Four speakers demonstrate collecting and sharing research and data
    Posted on: Mar 2 2011 ...

    The final offering of the three-part Lunchtime Learning sessions took attendees on a guided tour of the world of Materials Cyberinfrastructure.

    Organized by TMS Technical Director George Spanos, four speakers presented demonstrations of the various ways Materials Cyberinfrastructure can connect materials scientists by collecting and sharing research and data.

    "Cyberinfrastructure will house information that would otherwise be lost," said speaker John Allison, of the University of Michigan.

    Speaker Paul Mason, of ThermoCalc, Inc., showed how developing this database of information through computational tools created numerous benefits and including financial savings.

    Speaker Andy Geltmacher, of the Naval Research Laboratory, said Materials Cyberinfrastructure would attract many users since it is a Wiki-based tool. At the University of Purdue, professor Alejandro Strachan, the third speaker, said he had 165,000 annual users of the National Science Foundation-funded "nanoHUB," a resource for nanoscience and technology.

    "This is our incentive. We have lots contributions from people who want to publish their work and also let other people use it," he said.

    Laura Bartolo, of Kent State University, said the institution-housed MatDL/MatForge can "bring modeling and simulation method research codes into the classroom."
