2nd workshop ICMEg2nd International Workshop on Software Solutions for Integrated Computational Materials Engineering, 12-15 April 2016, Barcelona, Spain

Integrated Computational Materials Engineering - ICME - by its nature draws on the combination and the simultaneous or consecutive use of a variety of software tools. By now the major developments in the area of ICME have successfully been driven essentially by academic and industrial users of simulation software. In spite of ICME currently emerging as a new and powerful discipline, coupling of different software tools is however still in its infancy and represents an issue consuming significant effort in terms of time and workforce if a coupling is realized at all. ICMEg – the Integrated Computational Materials Engineering expert group – a coordination activity of the European Commission acting as organizer of the workshop aims at developing a global open standard for information exchange between the heterogeneous varieties of numerous simulation tools. Once being established, such an open and easily accessible formulation of a global standard will: significantly facilitate the exchange of data between different tools create new options and functionalities of the present tools allow for easy integration between commercial and academic approaches and models provide the pathway for life-cycle modeling of components/products allow for global optimisation of process chains instead of individually optimized models stimulate many further new developments 2nd International Workshop The second edition of the International Workshop on Software Solutions for Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME 2016) will take place on 12-15 April 2016 in Barcelona, Spain. The first edition of this workshop was held in Rolduc (The Netherlands) on 24-27 June 2014. The objectives of ICME 2016 are to discuss necessary steps and outline a concept to create a global and open standard for information exchange between different models/tools in ICME, to generate a comprehensive, structured inventory of solutions, to convene and to network software providers/developers –both comercial and academic-- being interested to provide their solutions to the growing ICME community, to create awareness about existing models and solutions -- along all the process steps and accross all the scales-- for the computational modelling of multiphysics and multiscale problems, to identify options and needs for coupling of individual codes, and to identify needs for model functionalities up-stream the process chains on the basis of requirements by models downstream the value chain. The workshop is promoted by the Integrated Computational Materials Engineering expert group (ICMEg) and supported by the European Commission under grant No. NMP3-CA-2013--606711 More information:  www.icmeg.info

 

Rolduc1st International Workshop on Software Solutions for Integrated Computational Materials Engineering

Integrated Computational Materials Engineering - ICME - by its nature draws on the combination and the simultaneous or consecutive use of a variety of software tools. By now the major developments in the area of ICME have successfully been driven essentially by academic and industrial users of simulation software.

 In spite of ICME currently emerging as a new and powerful discipline, coupling of different software tools is however still in its infancy and represents an issue consuming significant effort in terms of time and workforce if a coupling is realized at all. ICMEg – the Integrated Computational Materials Engineering expert group – a coordination activity of the European Commission acting as organizer of the workshop aims at developing a global open standard for information exchange between the heterogeneous varieties of numerous simulation tools. Once being established, such an open and easily accessible formulation of a global standard will:

  • significantly facilitate the exchange of data between different tools
  • create new options and functionalities of the present tools
  • allow for easy integration between commercial and academic approaches and models
  • provide the pathway for life-cycle modeling of components/products
  • allow for global optimisation of process chains instead of individually optimized models
  • stimulate many further new developments

Scopes of this first ICMEg workshop are:

  • to convene and to network software providers/developers – both commercial and academic – being interested in providing their solutions to the growing ICME community
  • to create awareness about solutions and models presently being available along all processing steps and across all scales
  • to generate a comprehensive overview and a thematically structured inventory of such software solutions
  • to identify options emerging for individual codes by coupling them to other models/tools
  • to identify needs for model functionalities up-stream the process chains on the basis of requirements by models downstream the value chain to discuss necessary steps to create a global and open standard for information exchange between different models/tools
  •  to outline a first concept for such a standard

The workshop will especially provide cross sectional sessions promoting the interaction, networking and discussion between different areas such as:

  • Process Modelling meets Numerical Methods
  • Microstructure meets Thermodynamics
  • Thermodynamics meets discrete models
  • Microstructure meets Process modelling
  • Microstructure meets discrete models
  • Process modelling meets Thermodynamics
