Author(s)

Abstract

MatML is an extensible markup language (XML) for the management and exchange of materials property data. Launched in October 1999, and coordinated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce, the MatML project has drawn upon the expertise of an international group of materials scientists and engineers from private industry, government laboratories, universities, standard organizations, and professional societies. The background and development of MatML is described including a discussion of its features and its relationships to other scientific markup languages.
