A Collaborative Roadmapping Workshop
Nanoinformatics 2010 is a collaborative roadmapping and workshop project at which informatics experts, nanotechnology researchers, and other stakeholders and potential contributors will jointly develop a roadmap for the area of nanoinformatics.
Nanoinformatics 2010 is designed to survey the landscape, generate a roadmap, and stimulate collaborative activities in the area of nanoinformatics. By doing so, it will accelerate the responsible development and use of nanotechnology. Workshop themes include:
- Data Collection and Curation
- Tools for Innovation, Analysis, and Simulation
- Data Accessibility and Information Sharing
Nanoinformatics involves the development of effective mechanisms for collecting, sharing, visualizing, modeling and analyzing information relevant to the nanoscale science and engineering community. It also involves the utilization of information and communication technologies that help to launch and support efficient communities of practice. Nanoinformatics is necessary for comparative characterization of nanomaterials, for design and use of nanodevices and nanosystems, for instrumentation development and manufacturing processes. Nanoinformatics also fosters efficient scientific discovery and learning through data mining and machine learning techniques.
Nanoinformatics 2010 is open to all members of the nanoinformatics community and will be organized and governed by that community. Contact the program committee to get involved.
The Nanoinformatics Roadmap is currently under development and is expected for release in early 2011. Stay tuned!
