3rd EMMC International Workshop 2021

3rd EMMC International Workshop 2021

Materials and our ability to understand and utilise their behaviour play a central role in supporting industrial transformation and delivering against the objectives of the European Green Deal. More than ever, we are aware of supply chain capabilities and opportunities of a digitally connected world.

Following successful events held in Vienna in 2017 and 2019, the 3rd EMMC International Workshop will take place on March, 2-4, 2021: it will be totally digital but will retain key element of extended discussion sessions covering the EMMC Focus Areas, that are Modelling developmentInteroperabilityDigitalisationSoftwareImpact in Industry and Policy. Session outcomes will provide input to future research agendas, and in particular the EMMC Roadmap.

Plenary talks with important speakers have already been defined, and will include various themes related to materials, such as Interatomic potentials, from ontology to practical applications, digitalization, and modeling. Our PI Nicola Marzari from our partner EPFL will give a talk about “The digital infrastructures for 21st-century science“. The workshop also offers the opportunity for in-depth discussions within 12 Sessions organised by the EMMC Focus Areas. 

The “Open Contributions and Virtual Stands Sessions” will tak place on March, 1st/2nd, from 4.30 pm CET to 5,30 pm CET, and will answer questions and discuss results with other workshop participants. Submission of Open Contributions is possible until Friday, February 26, 2021, 17:00 CET!

Our INTERSECT Project Coordinator Arrigo Calzolari will join the conference during theOpen Contributions and Virtual Stands Session” on March the 2nd, from 4.30 – 5,30 pm (CET).

The EMMC International workshop has become known as a leading cross-cutting event where stakeholders from different materials modelling-related fields in industry and academia get together to discuss topics of strategic importance and elaborate on gaps and potential actions to move the field forward.
