Scope 
As computational approaches to study the science and engineering of materials becomes more vital, it is critical to develop and improve techniques and algorithms that leverage everexpanding computational resources. These algorithms can impact areas such as: data acquisition and analysis from sophisticated microscopes and other types of laboratory equipment, analysis and extraction of critical quantitative metrics from numerical simulations of materials behavior, and the ability to leverage specific computer architectures for revolutionary improvements in simulation analysis time, power, and capability.
This symposium solicits abstract submissions from researchers who are developing new algorithms and/or designing new methods for performing computational research in materials science and engineering. Session topics include, but are not limited to: Advancements that enhance modeling and simulation techniques such as density functional theory, molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo simulation, dislocation dynamics, phasefield modeling, and finite element analysis New techniques for simulating the complex behavior of materials Computational methods for analyzing results from simulations of materials phenomena Approaches for data mining and extracting useful information from large data sets of numerical results
