This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
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.
