S2: Ceramics by Genome



This is a new symposium in response to the new Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) started in US and in many other advance countries worldwide. The goal is to “deploy advanced materials at least twice as fast as possible today and at a fraction of cost.” The MGI encompasses the activities on developing common toolset, which can be used across the entire materials discovery-to-deployment that integrates advanced computational methods with data-enabled scientific discovery and innovative experimental techniques. It is anticipated that MGI will accelerate materials discovery and development by building the fundamental knowledge needed to progress towards designing and making materials with specific function or properties from first principles. The symposium focuses on different types of ceramic materials and structures with different approaches in both computational research and experimental measurements across the length and time scales in advancing our understanding of their interrelationship.


Proposed Symposium Topics

  • Genome approach on structural ceramics
  • Genome approach on electronic ceramics
  • Genome approach on bioceramics
  • Genome approach on magnetic materials
  • Genome approach on battery and energy harvesting materials
  • Genome approach on composite materials
  • Genome approach on surfaces, interfaces and nanostructures
  • Genome approach related to multiscale bridging and continuum mechanics
  • Method and software developments in genome related research
  • Experimental aspect of the genome approach
