This event will take place at SAMSI, located in Research Triangle Park, NC.
Directions: The address is 79 T. W. Alexander Drive in the Research Triangle Park. It is in the Research Commons complex. Heading west on T. W. Alexander from the Durham Freeway (Route 147), it is the third left hand entrance into the complex. Park in the first lot you see, in front of building 4501—there is a red sign saying MEMA on the top of the building. SAMSI is on the third floor.


The North Carolina State University SEAS program and SAMSI will be hosting a two-day “hackathon” with the goal of fostering collaboration between materials and data scientists. Participants will be split into multidisciplinary teams of 5-10 researchers and given 48 hours to collaborate to find data-science solutions to predefined materials problems. Ideally the collaborations formed during the hackathon will continue beyond the event and result in future publications.

Researchers from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.
