2018 Atomistic Simulations for Industrial Needs Workshop

This workshop is designed to facilitate interactions between researchers in industry, government, and academia to identify and address obstacles to the wider use of atomic-scale simulation methods in quantitative industrial research and development. Topics for discussion:

  • The state of elemental and alloy interatomic potentials, including transferability
  • Current use cases and applications of interest
  • Analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and uncertainty quantification
  • The use of atomistic and first-principles methods as inputs for phase-field, crystal plasticity and other higher-level models
  • Repositories of interatomic potentials, and workflows for comparing and validating potentials
  • Increasing the availability and accessibility of community resources
  • Interoperability of tools and information across projects
  • Other topics of interest to the community

Registration is free, but limited.  Registration closes July 23, 2018. Non-US citizens will be required to fill out a NIST visitors form (will be sent to you).

Wednesday and Thursday will consist of talks, while Friday will be a collaborative working day focused on helping atomistic users find and access atomistic resources and data across and between different projects. A final agenda and list of presenters will be posted soon.

If you are not registered, you will not be allowed on site. Registered attendees will receive security and campus instructions prior to the workshop.

NON U.S. CITIZENS PLEASE NOTE: All foreign national visitors who do not have permanent resident status and who wish to register for the above meeting must supply additional information. Failure to provide this information prior to arrival will result, at a minimum, in significant delays (up to 24 hours) in entering the facility. Authority to gather this information is derived from United States Department of Commerce Department Administrative Order (DAO) number 207-12. When registration is open, the required NIST-1260 form will be available as well. *New Visitor Access Requirement: Effective July 21, 2014, Under the REAL ID Act of 2005, agencies, including NIST, can only accept a state-issued driver's license or identification card for access to federal facilities if issued by states that are REAL ID compliant or have an extension.Click here for a list of alternative identification and further details.
