Integrated Computational Materials Engineering, 2017: Julie Christodoulou1; 1Office of Naval Research
    Nearly ten years has passed since the discipline of Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) was defined in the National Academies Report of 2008, and we find ourselves in the fourth World Congress on ICME. In this talk we'll re-evaluate some of the early observations and motivations leading to the ICME study, assess our progress toward very ambitious goals, celebrate a little, identify persistent challenges, and begin to scope what lays ahead.

TMS Materials Data Infrastructure Study: Charles Ward1; 1Air Force Research Laboratory
    The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society, with sponsorship from the National Science Foundation, conducted a study to define the actions needed to support the creation of a materials data infrastructure. Such an infrastructure is key to retaining, discovering, sharing, and reusing the digital materials data needed to power the discipline of Integrated Computational Materials Engineering and achieve the goals of the Materials Genome Initiative. Access to relevant materials data is becoming ever more important to the conduct of science and engineering throughout the lifecycle of a material, encompassing material discovery, development, product design, manufacturing and sustainment. A core team of experts was convened over the course of 14 months to explore the hurdles and opportunities involved with storing and sharing materials data including standards, supportability, sustainability, integration with publications, training and education, incentives and disincentives. Using content captured from their meetings along with input from supplemental interviews and workshops, the team developed a report with recommendations of key steps and pathways needed to realize a vision for a materials data infrastructure.

Towards an ICME Methodology- Current Activities in Europe: Georg J. Schmitz1; 1Micress/Aachen
     Scope of this presentation is to provide an overview about activities towards an ICME methodology currently going on in Europe. The presentation will especially introduce the European Materials Modelling Council (EMMC) as a bottom-up activity of the European materials modelling community and provide a short outline of the different working groups within the EMMC and their objectives. A short introduction of the ICMEg Coordination and Support Action and the lessons learned during its 3 years of activities will highlight the vision of plug& play in future ICME and emphasize the needs for interoperability and standardization as strategy to reach interoperability. Technical aspects of ICME like the development of simulation platforms, metadata descriptors and creating metadata schemata, which are elaborated within five different European research projects (MoDeNa, Deepen, Simphony, MMP and NanoSim), conclude the presentation. The research leading to these results has been performed within the ICMEg project and has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2011] under grant agreement n 6067114
