Symposium MT01-Integrating Machine Learning and Simulations for Materials Modeling

A new generation of computational approaches for materials modeling has emerged from innovative applications of machine learning to numerical simulations of materials. In this nascent and vibrant field, conventional methods of computational materials science are blended with data-science tools to produce physically-consistent models and conceptual knowledge. Moreover, this combined approach has also led to progress on long-standing technical challenges for numerical methods in materials modeling, such as alleviating length and time-scale limitations, improved accuracy, reducing computational costs, development inverse-design capabilities, model interpretability and transferability, visualization of materials representations in high-dimensional spaces, and handling of scarce and heterogeneous data sets. This symposium will explore emerging trends in combining data-driven frameworks with physics-based materials simulations across scales, from ab initio electronic structure calculations to large-scale atomistic simulations, mesoscale models, and continuum approaches. Applications will be considered for systems of relevance in materials science broadly construed: from structural materials to soft matter, functional materials, and quantum materials. Our goal is to deepen our understanding of novel methodological capabilities and highlight challenging issues that need to be tackled in order to enable widespread application and adoption of these approaches in academia and industry.

Topics will include:

  • Uncovering structural and dynamical complexity in large-scale simulations
  • Machine learning potentials for crystal defects and other heterogeneities
  • Physics-based materials modeling with machine learning
  • Reduced-order machine learning models for atomistic simulations
  • Multi-fidelity models, data-fusion, and transfer learning approaches
  • End-to-end differentiable frameworks, inverse problems, and deep generative models
  • Rare-events sampling and automated identification of collective variables
  • Topology optimization and development of tailored microstructure using machine learning
