[kfs-verteiler] Digital transformation, SNI2022 and deadline

KFS email newsletter on 28 June 2022


Dear Colleagues,

we are convinced that the topic of "digitalisation" and its tools will make our scientific work more effective and better. That is why we call on you to get involved in topics such as the generalisation of evaluation software and data uptake, metadata storage and archiving, and to exploit the potential of current initiatives - for example, by participating in DIGUM's current survey on Big Data Analytics or by submitting a poster abstract for SNI2022 on the topic of Artificial Intelligence or Data. At SNI2022, two microsymposia will be held on this highly topical subject ("Digitalisation" and "Artificial Intelligence for Large-scale Facilities") to help exchange information on the state of the art and establish contacts.

> Survey on Big Data Analytics

What data analytics techniques are you interested in? What do you do with it? What languages, analytics tools, data formats, machine learning packages and hardware platforms do you use? Which online services or events on the topic would be interesting for you? The developers are asking these and a few other questions about Big Data Analytics in DIGUM, and anyone with experience in this area is invited to take part in the survey here:

> SNI2022: Late Poster Abstract Submission and Early Bird Registration until 10 July 2022
05 - 07 September 2022, Berlin

For the 5th Conference on Research with Synchrotron Radiation, Neutrons and Ion Beams at Large Facilities, 05 - 07 September 2022 in Berlin (SNI2022), you can still upload a poster abstract until 10 July and register at the Early Bird rate. We look forward to seeing many of you there!

> Synchrotron research for climate protection and energy transition

The contributions of synchrotron radiation research to climate change and energy independence are a new focus of the KFS website. Under the heading "Research- Energy and Environment" you will now find content on photovoltaics, batteries, catalysis, hydrogen storage, raw materials and critical metals and the efforts of the research facilities to become climate neutral.

> Minutes of the KFS meeting

In addition to the digital transformation and the SNI2022, there are of course other important topics currently occupying the KFS, for example the BMBF funding programmes, the transfer topic, news from the facilities and the new access modes, e.g. BAGs and HUBs. Here you will find a summary of the last meeting on 17 May 2022:
