Symposium A
Virtual Materials Design and Ceramic Genome

Recent progress in high-throughput materials design and ceramic genome have significantly enhanced the efficiency with which the the improvement of materials performance, the optimization of processing, the discovery of new materials, and the design of structural components can be achieved. This symposium focuses on the design, modeling and simulation of ceramics and composites with different approaches in both computational research and experimental measurements across the length and time scales so as to further optimize their behavior and facilitate the design of new ceramics and composites with tailored properties. A broader perspective is desired including the interest related to ceramic genome, virtual materials design for new innovative materials and thermo-structure, integrated materials computational engineering, prediction of the structure and properties of crystals, glasses and defects, modeling materials behavior under extreme/harsh environments, application of novel simulation methods for materials processing and performance, and simulation of novel ceramics for functional applications.
