Working Group of the Expert Committees Materials Modelling, Simulation and Data and Materialography
3D Materials Data

Microscopy methods today can generate a flood of research data that is non-trivial to handle and analyze. Similarly, many simulation methods can easily produce quite a few terabytes of data. Exploiting this data is a major challenge. At the same time, however, in addition to these "big data" problems, many situations exist where the sheer volume of data is not the problem, but documenting it through metadata, setting up an end-to-end workflow, or analyzing the data is non-trivial.

The Working Group 3D Materials Data is dedicated to this complex of topics. It would like to serve as a discussion forum and enable an exchange by presenting workflows or new analysis approaches. It deliberately addresses not only the theoretical/simulative community but also the experimental and microscopy community.


  • Discuss research data management, data analysis methods, research data infrastructure, workflows, data visualization.
  • Creating awareness e.g. for the FAIR data principles.
  • Organization of training and workshops.
  • Bringing together experimentation and simulation on the topic of "data".
