National Australian Symposium on Integrated Computational Materials Engineering
Monday 19th of February 2018, in the seminar room in the Woodward, Law Building of the University of Melbourne 10th floor.
Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) is an emerging discipline which seeks to accelerate the development of new materials by linking materials models of the manufacturing process to the composition and structure and hence properties of the material, enabling the rapid design and development of materials for specific applications at low cost. ICME can rapidly focus the search for new, optimised materials in the most promising regions of multidimensional materials space and provide decision support to reduce empiricism. While ICME requires a fundamental understanding of materials structure, properties and performance, the aim is to develop a comprehensive computational model to simulate the design and manufacture of new materials and products.
The National Australian Symposium on Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) will bring together researchers from universities and government laboratories, and end-users, manufacturers and designers from industry to review the current state of the art, with a particular focus on the discipline in Australia. The primary goal of this first Symposium is to assist in building the necessary collaborative links and chart a common, future pathway. In doing so, the Symposium will develop a roadmap for the advancement of ICME in Australia.
