Within Materials Science and Engineering (MS&E), there exist semi-segregated programs; ceramists infrequently interact with metallurgists and both of those communities rarely interact with polymer scientists. In terms of Computational Materials Science and Engineering (CMSE), the underpinning theories, algorithms and computing protocols evolved independently to address science questions and engineering needs for their own communities. Each discipline brings different perspectives and computational strategies, which are bound to have value for the other sub-disciplines. The purpose of this GRC is to see what we can learn from one another by comparing and contrasting development of theory, algorithms and best practices across sub-disciplines of MS&E.
The conference will consist of nine sessions, on the topics listed below. The conference chair is currently developing their preliminary program, which will include the names of the invited speakers and discussion leaders for each of these sessions. The preliminary program will be available by October 15, 2019. Please check back for updates.
- Synthesis Planning Algorithms
- Machine Learning
- Coarse Graining
- Concurrent and Hierarchical Multiscale Modeling
- Non-Adiabatic Quantum Mechanics
- Autonomous Robotic Systems
- Calculation of Phase Diagrams (CALPHAD)
- Materials by Design
- Quantum Computing
