DGM-Nachwuchsforum 2023: Session on Data analysis and workflows in Materials science
24-26 Apr 2023 | Kassel University
The tutorial provided an introduction to python through jupyter notebooks. Furthermore, an insight into performing typical simulations in materials science, followed by tools and methods for efficient post-processing and analysis of data were provided. pyiron, an integrated development environment for computational materials science, was employed as a representative software in the tutorial. The workshop was aimed at providing early career researchers tools to streamline their scientific workflows and manage data efficiently.
From Electrons to Phase Diagrams 2022: Session on Phase Diagrams
09-10 Jun 2022 | Ruhr-University Bochum
The workshop focused on hands-on classes and tutorials covering the complete process from high-throughput electronic structure calculations to the computation of phase diagrams using pyiron. Day one provided an in-depth look at automated workflows for DFT data generation. Day two dove into the parameterization and validation of interatomic potentials using DFT reference data. Finally, on day three, the methods and tools for computing thermodynamic properties and phase diagrams were introduced.
