||The use of computational modeling and simulation in energy research can help overcome the challenges posted by materials design and experimental limitations. Nowadays, computational modeling and simulation combined with experiments play crucial and integrated roles in providing detailed insight into structure, capturing the process-structure-property-performance relationships, advancing the understanding of experimental observations, as well as guiding future experiments. The scope of this symposium is to address recent development and implementation of computational approaches for advanced materials design geared towards energy applications, e.g. energy harvesting, conversion and storage, as well as gas separation technologies. It will also address computational modeling challenges in energy research. The symposium is expected to bridge different length-scale computational modeling and better connect between modeling and experiments in order to accelerate the process of development of high-performance, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly materials for energy applications.
In addition, the symposium will provide a forum for materials science and engineering educators and researchers to integrate computational approaches into MSE curriculum.
A list of topics of interest includes, but are not limited to:
• Energy harvesting and conversion
• Energy storage solutions
• Carbon capture and storage
• Gas separation
• Computational materials education
