Be Part of CDSM 2018

The Call for Abstracts is now open for the 2nd International Conference on Computational Design and Simulation of Materials (CDSM 2018). Organized jointly by TMS and the Chinese Society for Metals (CSM), CDSM 2018 offers an immersive learning and networking opportunity focused on computational simulation and modeling to accelerate materials discovery and design.

A complete meeting-within-a-meeting experience, CDSM is co-located with the TMS 2018 Annual Meeting & Exhibition in Phoenix, Arizona, March 11–15. Check this website regularly for news and programming updates.

Planned Symposia

Atomistic Simulations

This symposium will focus on simulation approaches, tools, and materials properties at the atomistic scale and will include the presentations on state-of-the-art capabilities, challenges, and future directions. Predictions of properties at both zero Kelvin and finite temperatures are of interest.

Meso/Macroscale Simulations
Microstructural attributes to processing and property modeling of materials play a central role in materials design and multi-scale modeling. Their quantification and insertion into models are highly desirable. This symposium seeks to advance progress in this area through discussion of topics at scales above atoms, with a particular interest in integration of scales.

Computational Design of Materials
Optimal and robust design of materials involve selection of chemistry and processing for desired microstructure and targeted properties. In addition to tools and databases, uncertainty quantification is central for its broad acceptance—a topic of particular interest for this symposium.
