Symposium MD02-Data-Driven Multiscale Studies of Materials—Computations and Experiments

Multiscale methods have been widely used in material studies, allowing us to gain insights into material behaviors at quantum, atomistic, micro-, meso- and macro-scales. The recent developments in data-driven methods, such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, and their integration with multiscale approaches are creating new research opportunities. Data-driven multiscale studies of materials have shown promising results in developing interatomic potentials for atomistic modeling, designing new materials, discovering new constitutive laws, identifying processing-structure-performance correlations, and analyzing microscopy images, among many others. In this symposium, we will include the new developments of data-driven methods in computational and experimental studies of materials, the data-driven studies crossing different scales, the studies bridging computations and experiments, and the new understandings of material behaviors enabled by the data-driven multiscale methods. This symposium will bring together researchers from a broad spectrum of disciplines with a data- or multiscale-relevant component in their research to exchange research progress and inspire new research ideas.

Topics will include:

  • Data-driven design of new materials
  • Data-driven characterization of materials
  • Data-driven identification of constitutive relations
  • Process-structure-performance correlations
  • The development of new data-driven methods for material studies
  • Machine-learning potentials for atomistic simulations
  • Model-order reduction in multiscale computations
  • Uncertainty quantifications in multiscale computations
  • Scale-bridging methods for material studies
