||The key goals of ICME 2017 are to convene stakeholders from across all areas of modeling and simulation, experimental specialization, and design, as well as from across academia, government, and industry, to address integrated computational materials engineering (ICME) tools and techniques and their integration, as well as to examine their application in engineering. This congress will provide a forum for presentations and discussions centered on ICME-related topics.
ICME has emerged as an important discipline because of its great potential in efficiently designing new materials, engineering new products, and improving manufacturing processes. ICME methodologies can identify gaps in the integration process when applied to solving fundamental engineering problems. These can lead to advancements in the fundamental understanding of the problems, development of the linkages along the processing chain, and development of computational tools and advanced experimental techniques for engineering practice and the establishment of an infrastructure for global information sharing.
