Workshop Description:
  • One accepted definition of Big Data is high volume, high velocity, and/or high variety information assets that require new forms of processing to enable enhanced decision making, insight discovery and process optimization. The concurrent progression of new tools and methodologies for materials investigation occurring in tandem with innovative experimental techniques has become a characteristic descriptor of 3D Materials Science as a field and created the existence of Big Data in the materials community. As examples, femto-second laser machining, micro- and nano-tomography as well as multi-modal data collection have advanced by leaps and bounds within the last decade alone. As a result, the creation of or adapting of established tools for collecting, processing, analyzing and representing this data are being forced to grow and adapt as well. The 2015 UCSB Workshop on Collection and Analysis of Big Data in 3D Materials Science will focus on recently developed and evolving tools for processing Big data in 3D materials science, as well as expose participants to research solutions derived from other fields which may be applicable to pressing materials challenges. The workshop will accomplish this two-fold goal by providing overview plenary talks as a survey of the field and hands-on tutorials for currently-available data analysis tools.
