SYMPOSIUM 10: Ceramics Modeling, Genome and Informatics

Recent progress in computational materials science has significantly enhanced the efficiency with which the understanding of fundamental phenomena, the improvement of materials performance, the optimization of processing, the discovery of new materials, and the design of structural components can be achieved. This symposium will focus on the high-throughput design, modeling, big data and informatics of ceramics and composites with different approaches in both computational research and experimental measurements across the length and time scales so as to further optimize their behavior and facilitate the design of new ceramics and composites with tailored properties. A broader perspective is desired including the interest related to ceramic genome, virtual materials design, big data and informatics for new innovative materials and thermo-structure, integrated materials computational engineering, prediction of the structure and properties of crystals, glasses and defects, modeling materials behavior under extreme/harsh environments, application of novel simulation methods for materials processing and performance, simulation of novel ceramics for functional applications, and the modeling of surfaces, interfaces and grain boundaries at multiple scales.
