Welcome to the FAIRmat hands-on tutorial series!
These tutorials offer current and potential users and members of the community a chance to learn about our work towards a FAIR data infrastructure for condensed-matter physics and the chemical physics of solids.
We use real, hands-on examples to show how FAIRmat can help researchers today as well as to inform about upcoming new scientific opportunities.
The interactive tutorials take place on Zoom and a livestream is also available on KouShare. After the live event, recordings of the talks and selected exercises are available on YouTube, KouShare and this website.
Through these tutorials, FAIRmat not only informs but gets to know the community, and your feedback is used to create educational materials, documentation, and plans for improvement of our services.
The FAIRmat team has recently extended the NOMAD infrastructure to support trajectories and workflows, including classical molecular dynamics simulations. This interactive tutorial will walk users through the new features, demonstrating how to upload data, assess the system composition and equilibration, explore the trajectory metadata, and extract archive entries to perform detailed analyses.
We present a hands-on tutorial on how FAIRmat supports the data lifecycle from planning and running an experiment to collecting and annotating data according to international community standards for searchability, and reuse.
For this purpose, we bring a very simple experiment of a temperature dependent I-V measurement in as an example and let every participant follow us and connect to our central data management services, to view, explore and work with the datasets collected on-the-fly. Participants who want to take part in the interactive session only need a web browser and a free account on our central NOMAD server: https://nomad-lab.eu/prod/v1/.
The NOMAD Encyclopedia is a web-based public infrastructure that provides this materials-oriented view on the NOMAD Repository & Archive. In this tutorial we will discuss how to navigate the materials space using the Encyclopedia GUI as well as the more advanced tasks which are possible using the Encyclopedia API.
