Modeling and simulation play an important role in materials research and in particular for glass, amorphous, and nanostructured materials due to their complex nature. This session will focus on computer simulations and modeling approaches to gain insight into the structures and properties of glass and glass-forming liquids. Of particular interest are recent development of classical and first principles methods including empirical potentials, efficient first principles algorithms, and applications.

Also welcome are numerical studies that help the interpretation of experimental data and structural validation using methods such as X-ray and neutron diffraction, solid-state NMR, and other spectroscopic techniques. Integrated computational material design of glass compositions using physics-based modeling and simulation methods will also be covered.
