The purpose of the Nanoinformatics 2015 workshop is to bring together stakeholders in order to assess the state of informatics relevant to the all aspects of the nanotechnology enterprise and to set priority targets for the future. From materials to processes to products; accessible data, information, models, and simulations will enable innovators to optimize performance and accelerate the innovation cycle from concept to product. Scientists and engineers will be able to efficiently assess the safety of new nanomaterials and quantitatively implement best practices of safe manufacturing and usage of nanomaterials throughout product lifecycles. Scientists will share predictive models and data that enable the design and discovery of nanomaterials and the resulting performance of systems that use them.

Nanoinformatics encompasses aspects of data collection, tools, and sharing, along with associated applications that are becoming a key element of nanotechnology research, nanotechnology environmental health and safety (nanoEHS), product development and sustainable manufacturing. The organization of nanomaterial data into interoperable databases will provide the necessary tools/platforms for companies to quantify liability threats; comply with regulations; minimize materials usage, energy consumption, and overall cost; while ensuring safety to people and the environment. Building upon the growing base of manufacturing resources and intellectual infrastructure, Nanoinformatics 2015 will provide overviews on present database development projects, tools, and resources currently being leveraged; discuss gaps and challenges with establishing an open access informatics infrastructure; facilitate synergistic discussions of emerging applications; and provide ample opportunities for collaboration amongst the community stakeholders.

Nanoinformatics 2015 will review the state of the art in methods for collecting, archiving, modeling, visualizing, and sharing data and identify opportunities and gaps for expanding the roadmap for nanoinformatics.

Workshop topics will include:

Process modeling and control
Materials supply chain
Life cycle inventory data
System scale-up methodology
NanoEHS data and models
Data workflow processes
Nanomaterials properties data
Data mining tools and opportunities
Database design and accessibility
Design for manufacturability
Minimal data sets
Interlaboratory studies
Materials modeling and characterization
Uncertainty quantification
Sharing practices and incentives
