Home > Press > Greener Nano 12: Nanoinformatics Tools and Resources Workshop - Save the date!

Abstract:
The quantity of information on nanomaterial properties and behavior continues to grow exponentially. Without a concerted effort to organize and mine disparate information coming out of current research efforts, the value and effective use of this information will be limited at best.  At worst, erroneous conclusions will be drawn and data will not be translated to knowledge.  Nanoinformatics inherently supports a community-based approach to filter the noise and enhance the value of global information in nanoscience and nanotechnology.

Greener Nano 12: Nanoinformatics Tools and Resources Workshop - Save the date!

Portland, OR | Posted on May 21st, 2012

Much progress has been made through grassroots efforts in nanoinformatics resulting in a multitude of resources and tools for nanoscience researchers.  At this point, it is important to critically evaluate and refine nanoinformatics applications in order to best inform the science and support the future of predictive nanotechnology. 

GN12 will bring together informatics groups with materials scientists and active nanoscience researchers to evaluate and reflect on the tools/resources that have recently emerged in support of predictive nanotechnology. The goals of this workshop are to establish a better understanding of current applications and clearly define immediate and projected informatics infrastructure needs for the nanotechnology community.  We will use the theme of nanoEHS to provide real-world, concrete examples on how informatics can be utilized to advance our knowledge and guide nanoscience.

Workshop organizers will select an expert panel of materials scientists from diverse sectors of nanomaterials research and development to participate in the workshop and to serve as a formalized pool of experts on which the nanoinformatics community can draw expertise. 

To nominate (self-nomination acceptable) an expert in nanoscience research and/or materials science, please send CV and a brief statement of experience and interest in nanoscience by June 30, 2012 to Stacey Harper at .
