Modeling Materials at Realistic Space and Time Scales via Optimal Exploitation of Exascale Computers and Artificial Intelligence
DATE: 25th July - 29th July 2022
LOCATION: Berlin, IRIS Adlershof

This flagship workshop and associated hands-on tutorial school will focus on recent important developments, addressing exascale computing and artificial intelligence (AI) methods with a specific focus on urgent topics for materials science.

The workshop hence aims at updating the audience about new and upcoming possibilities. For this, we will have lectures from top HPC centers from Europe, USA and Japan. In particular, we will address how exascale computing can help materials modeling in terms of higher accuracy and precision, and more controlled scale bridging. We will also discuss advancements of AI methods and exascale workflows.

DATE: 10th October - 12th October 2022
LOCATION: CECAM-HQ-EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland

In order to harvest the richness contained in presently known and future materials-science data, four pillars need to be concurrently developed:

FAIR-compliant materials databases.
Identification of proper descriptors and metrics for capturing the similarity amongst materials.
Artificial-intelligence (AI) approaches for exploratory analysis.
Scalable implementations.
In this workshop, experts in all these aspects will interact to confront ideas and solutions for performing flexible, interactive, efficient, and insightful analyses of materials databases.
