Accelerated Material Design (ICME) in Structural and Energy Materials

ICME has become the new paradigm in materials design, promising substantial reduction in the time and cost in materials design and development of materials. Despite some success ICME stories, challenges remain in bridging modeling/simulation and experimentation, integration of different time/length scales, and etc. This symposium provides a forum to discuss recent advances in ICME, with particular focus on its application to structural and energy materials. The specific topics include (but not limited to) the following:

ICME has become the new paradigm in materials design, promising substantial reduction in the time and cost in materials design and development of materials. Despite some success ICME stories, challenges remain in bridging modeling/simulation and experimentation, integration of different time/length scales, and etc. This symposium provides a forum to discuss recent advances in ICME, with particular focus on its application to structural and energy materials. The specific topics include (but not limited to) the following:

  • New theoretical/computational tools development
  • Atomic-scale, meso-scale, micro-scale and multi-scale materials simulations
  • ICME-assisted experiment design and process design/optimization
  • Material database and data analysis/extraction tool development
  • Machine learning in material research

Learning objectives

  • Improve awareness of recent ICME related research development and new tools towards more efficient materials design
  • Promote discussion of new modeling and simulation techniques, and new approaches to better integrate modeling/simulation and experimentation
