5th World Congress on Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME 2019)

July 21–25, 2019 • JW Marriott Indianapolis • Indianapolis, Indiana, USA

Technical Program

The key goals of ICME 2019 are to convene stakeholders from across all areas of modeling and simulation, experimental specialization, and design, as well as from across academia, government, and industry, to address ICME tools and techniques and their integration, as well as to examine their application in engineering. This congress will provide a forum for presentations and discussions centering on ICME-related topics, including:

  • The wide range of materials programs where an ICME approach validated by experimental efforts is applicable, including computational- and experimental-based talks
  • Individual computational methods utilized in an ICME approach, including both advantages and limitations
  • Roles of ICME in continuing education in industry
  • High-throughput computing application in ICME
  • Development of materials processing and materials characterization technology
  • Incorporation of “big data, data fusion, and machine learning” for materials and product development with ICME methodologies
  • Development of database and database technology for ICME
  • Bridging the gap of across-scale materials simulation
  • Success stories of ICME on materials development
  • ICME implementation strategies
  • Verification, validation, and uncertainty quantification issues
  • Interoperability, data, and communications standards
  • ICME networking initiatives around the world

ICME has emerged as an important discipline because of its great potential in efficiently designing new materials, engineering new products, and improving manufacturing processes. ICME methodologies can identify gaps in the integration process when applied to solving fundamental engineering problems, these can lead to advancements in the fundamental understanding of problems, development of the linkages along the processing chain, and development of computational tools and advanced experimental technique for engineering practice and the establishment of an infrastructure for global information sharing.
