Conference Announcement

1st Symposium on Computational Materials Research: Advanced Electronic Structure Calculations and Big Data

Thursday July 27, 2017

IMS 20, UConn

Quantum theory has been at the forefront of materials research as the technology shrinks towards the nanoscale. This has been partly driven by the progress in methodologies that could be pursued within present day high-performance computational capabilities. The state-of-the-art theory goes hand- in-hand with experiments and helps capture the physics of materials. There are examples where new properties predicted by theory have been later validated by experiments. The data mining and the machine learning of the first-principles data adds completely new dimension to designing materials by theory. The goal of the conference is to provide a platform for discussion on the current research trends. The scope also covers some introductory and visionary perspective in materials theory.

Speakers: UConn postdoctoral researchers

Keynote speaker: Prof. Sanguthevar Rajasekaran, UTC Chair Professor of Computer Science & Engineering and Director of Booth Engineering Center for Advanced Technologies (BECAT)
