TMS 2011: Lunchtime Session:
Materials Cyberinfrastructure: What it is, Why it’s Important, and Some Live Demonstrations
February 27 - March 3, 2011 • San Diego, California
Anyone working in computational or experimental materials science and technology areas looking to support their research and/or engineering efforts by
taking advantage of the benefits offered by a materials cyberinfrastructure. This includes researchers, engineers, and students from academia, industry,
and national laboratories who want to develop a general understanding and awareness of materials cyberinfrastructure, and its great potential. Download the course flier (PDF).
In a 2008 National Academies study on Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME), the importance of an ICME cyberinfrastructure was
discussed in some detail. Such a cyberinfrastructure is composed of elements including collaborative Web sites, repositories of various types of
data, computational modeling tools, and collaboration software. This workshop will first provide a brief description of "materials cyberinfrastructure"
and the importance of such an infrastructure to the materials community (particularly as it relates to ICME). This overview will be followed by four live
demonstrations of some different elements of cyberinfrastructure, including: (1) a thermodynamics and phase diagram computational tool,
(2) a collaborative 3D materials database platform, (3) a web-based resource for nanoscience and technology computational tools and collaborations,
and (4) a consortium-based, collaborative modeling and simulation code platform.
