Industrial Forum and Training for Materials Modelling


Date: 11-13 September 2013 --- Registration Closed

The development of simulation approaches for predictive, de-novo characterization and optimization of materials and device properties represents a grand challenge to European R&D. A unified, multi-disciplinary approach towards the deployment of models, tools, algorithms and simulation and visualization techniques is required to transform isolated solutions for specific problems into comprehensive, industry-ready platforms. There has been much progress in the development of such platforms but the transfer of the solutions from the laboratory and into the industrial setting is still limited despite the clear demand. To address this challenge the MMM@HPC project is organising a workshop which will bring together experts and researchers in industry, or those working on industrial applications, to share experience, knowledge and work together to find solutions to common problems.
The workshop will be followed by a one-day (optional) hands-on training session where participants will be able to try out the technology developed within the MMM@HPC project for materials modelling.
Registration --- Registration Closed
There is no fee for the workshop or the training session but for reasons of space registration is required.

List of talks

Training session
Immediately after the workshop there will be a one day hands-on training session where participants will have the opportunity to experiment with materials modelling workflows developed within the MMM@HPC project.
The session will be guided by instructors from the project  consortium and participants are requested to bring laptops. Please indicate at the time of registration if you wish to attend the training session.

For more information about the training session, see here.

About Bologna
Bologna is a beautiful, well-preserved medieval city and capital of the Emilia-Romagna region in northern Italy. As well as home to a famous  cuisine, it is also at the centre of one of the most important industrial areas in Italy. Travel to the city and region is relatively easy thanks to its international airport, major railway station and close proximity to the national motorway network.
