Heritage Science Workshop on data interoperability for Spectrometry – Online on December 14-16 2022

Heritage Science Workshop on data interoperability for Spectrometry – Online on December 14-16 2022

The Heritage Science workshop is an initiative of the DIGILAB working group of the IperionHS projectResinfra-EU-LAC and ANTECIPA as part of the SEM-EDS data interoperability pilot.

The basic concepts of Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and chemical element identification using x-ray spectrometers (EDS: Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectrometer and WDS: Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Spectrometer) will be discussed, and demonstrations with practical aspects plus practical aspects of data interoperability and good practices will be addressed.

The main lecturer is Prof. Dr Nestor Zaluzec from Argonne National Laboratory, Northern Illinois University and the University of Illinois at Chicago. Dr Nicholas Ritchie from NIST will also give a talk.

The tentative program, especially the demonstration sessions, might suffer slight time shifts depending on the interest and discussions.

The official language of the workshop will be English.

The scheduled time zone is Brasilia, which is 3 hours ahead of Chicago and 4 hours behind Central Europe (Brussels, Rome, etc.)

Registration until December 13, 2022

Check the program here, but be aware that the times are for Brasilia. So 4 hours less than Central European Time (CET).


“FAIR data: the challenges of interoperability” 14th June – HSAcademy


Categoría: Noticias

IPERION HS and E-RIHS are organizing a series of webinars, a key source of state-of-the-art information on heritage science research, facilities, policy and impact. It contributes to developing a vibrant heritage science community and is intended for anyone involved in interdisciplinary heritage research.

The speaker, Karla Balzweit (Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais), will present a talk on FAIR data and the challenges of interoperability.
F.A.I.R. data: Findable – Accessible – Interoperable – Reusable, will be shortly introduced and the importance of working towards FAIR data will be discussed, especially in Heritage Science. Heritage Science is an extremely broad and interdisciplinary field which involves both people with very different backgrounds as well as the most diverse techniques in every part of the planet with the goal of studying, understanding and preserving material and immaterial natural and cultural heritage. The challenges of making data interoperable using different characterization techniques on material samples such as works of art, geological and archaeological samples will be discussed
