NOMAD Virtual Tutorial Series starting October 6, 2020

Learn how to use the NOMAD tools by participating in the NOMAD virtual tutorial series!


NOMAD is a web-based platform for FAIR sharing and analyzing of materials science data. This online tutorial series covers all important aspects of the NOMAD Laboratory project (Pillar A of FAIR-DI e.V.) and teaches participants how to use them efficiently. The tutorials are designed as interactive online seminars with introductory videos, hands-on exercises, and live Q&A zoom sessions with the NOMAD developers. All time zones are considered.

The first tutorial by NOMAD developer Markus Scheidgen takes place on October 6 - 7 and focuses on the NOMAD Repository and Archive – Sharing, Publishing, and Managing Computational Materials Science Data with NOMAD.
Registration is required.


In the first tutorial, NOMAD Developer Markus Scheidgen will address:

  • Introduction to NOMAD, the Repository and Archive
  • Publishing data – from raw data on your disk to FAIR, citable data
  • NOMAD’s metadata – from simple to complex search queries
  • NOMAD’s API for automating exploration and download
  • NOMAD’s Python package to access data or process data locally
