SMC Data Challenge 2021 provides an opportunity to tackle scientific data challenges that come from eminent datasets at ORNL. These datasets come from scientific simulations and instruments in physical and chemical sciences, electron microscopy, bioinformatics, neutron sources, urban development, and other areas, and will have open research questions and tasks for participants to solve. These datasets will be used for the SMC Data Challenge (SMCDC2021) competition. Learn more about the SMCDC21 on this site. Join us on SMCDC Slack for any latest updates and announcements.
