Impressions of the participants

We have asked our participants to send us their impressions of our first virtual conference via email. Thank you very much for the great feedback!

York Sure-Vetter

Plenary Speaker, Director of the NFDI Directorate
Virtual, but for real!

Pedro Dolabella Portella

Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und –prüfung (BAM)
The FAIR-DI Virtual Conference was a very interesting and successful event. It was possible to hear a great number of experts in this area. The OC did a great job, congratulations.

Sutapa Mondal Roy

Poster Presenter, Uka Tarsadia University, India
It has been a wonderful experience to be a part of this virtual conference. I learned something new from every presentation. The interaction with the participants via breakout rooms was very effective. Moreover, the invited and plenary lectures are extremely insightful. I thank the organizers for allowing me to be a part of this virtual conference so that I got to learn from these stalwarts of their fields.

Andrew Ferguson

Invited Speaker, Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering, University of Chicago
Enjoying FAIR-DI from Chicago. Terrific virtual meeting with attendees from across the globe.

Gabriel Ravanhani Schleder

Poster Presenter, Federal University of ABC, Brazilian Nanotechnology National Laboratory, Brazil
The conference has shown to us that indeed to connect the community, physical presence is not an obligatory requisite. In fact, the virtual experience has connected even more people, engaging people from around the world in almost all time zones. Congratulations to all!

Giulia Galli

Invited Speaker, University of Chicago, Argonne National Lab
This is the best organized and most pleasantly run webinar I have been part of or participated in! Thank you for inviting me and organizing this.

Tamás Haraszti

DWI - Leibniz-Institut für Interaktive Materialien e.V.
It is my first virtual conference of this scale, but I find it really rewarding to attend. The spread of topics is excellent, and it greatly highlights the actual importance of scientific data management, especially in soft-matter research. I am happy that I can participate. Thank you for all the Organizers for the great work!

Martin Aeschlimann

TU Kaiserslautern
Thanks a lot for this very timely conference dealing with an emergent big problem in modern material science.

James Warren

Plenary Speaker, Director, Materials Genome Program, National Institute of Standards and Technology
Great conference! A lot of followup discussions will be necessary.

Joshua Salazar

Poster Presenter, CompNano Research Group, School of Physical Sciences and Nanotechnology, Yachay Tech University, Ecuador
The pandemic challenged us to foster digital collaboration, and as an undergraduate student I’m really excited to be part of the new dynamics of scientific interactions.

Luca Ghiringhelli

Invited Speaker, Fritz Haber Institute Berlin
The speakers' lineup is impressive... and the extremely useful possibility to go back in the presentation by e.g. keeping the YouTube version ready in a separate window should set a new standard about conference experience.

Sulakshana Athare

Thank you FAIR-DI Team for bringing data scientists in “Science” on one single platform and arranging this virtual conference. This event gave great exposure to how ML applied to material science. Without this conference, I wouldn’t have imagined attending lectures of the eminent professors just sitting at a remote village in Maharashtra, India! Thank you once again!

Uwe Bergmann

Invited Speaker, Stanford PULSE Institute, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
Fantastic organization, thank you!

Mark Greiner

Invited Speaker, Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion
Thank you for organizing the conference. It was a great event, and very well executed. Several from my group took part and learned a lot from it. This event also did a lot for bringing the FAIR community together and stimulating networking. I have already had several valuable follow-up meetings that will lead to collaboration.
