Materials Cyberinfrastructure: What it is, Why it's Important, and Some Live Demonstrations

Category: conference/workshop
Description: In a 2008 National Academies study on Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME), the importance of an ICME cyberinfrastructure was discussed in some detail. Such a cyberinfrastructure is composed of elements including collaborative Web sites, repositories of various types of data, computational modeling tools, and collaboration software. This workshop will first provide a brief description of “materials cyberinfrastructure” and the importance of such an infrastructure to the materials community (particularly as it relates to ICME). This overview will be followed by four live demonstrations of some different elements of cyberinfrastructure, including: (1) a thermodynamics and phase diagram computational tool, (2) a collaborative 3D materials database platform, (3) a web-based resource for nanoscience and technology computational tools and collaborations, and (4) a consortium-based, collaborative modeling and simulation code platform.
