EMMC Workshop on Interoperability in Materials Modelling

 

Date: 7-8 November 2017

VenueSt John’s Innovation Centre, Cambridge

Materials Modelling has become an essential part of research, development, engineering and upscaling of advanced materials in a wide range of industry sectors. However, the routes to utilising materials modelling and achieving impact can be arduous. For wider use and increased impact, it must become easier to combine and connect different models and codes as well as models, workflows and data. Also, connections and routes in between different actors require improvement, calling for ‘digital marketplaces’ where the different stakeholders can interact more easily. Integration of materials modelling into the R&D enterprise in the age of Industry 4.0 requires the whole field to step back and work together on interoperability solutions that go much beyond stringing together workflows with syntactically based scripting. It calls for interoperability solutions that are based on semantic approaches with metadata backed up by an ontology framework.

Purpose and objective of the workshop

The purpose is to discuss recent developments in interoperability approaches in materials modelling and related fields, following on from discussions at the First EMMC International Workshop (Notes from that event will be available to workshop delegates). In particular, the workshop will focus on semantic interoperability based on a future European Materials Modelling Ontology (EMMO). Definitions of some of the terms in such an ontology are the subject of a CEN Workshop Agreement.

Communication standards between models and databases will also be discussed, including initial requirements for cataloguing simulations in data repositories, and general requirements for Translation and Training components with a view to integration into future Materials Modelling Marketplaces.

EMMC is seeking support of the wider materials modelling community for the development of a European Materials Modelling Ontology as a basis for interoperability and domain specific metadata.

Participants

Representatives from the academic and industrial materials modelling community covering different types of models and applications, database repository owners and project representatives. The workshop is limited to 50-60 experts.

Material Modelling Metadata

Materials models are used extensively across the world and to make efficient use of the generated data, a way of categorising them should be developed and agreed: meta-data!

The EMMC invites all stakeholders to join the EMMC and participate in Drafting Metadata for Materials Modelling!

If you are already a member of the EMMC please get in touch with the OTM of any of the WGs to get involved.

If not a member yet, but you still whant to contribute, please follow the instructions in the Participation link to join the EMMC first!

As a first step we are collecting high level metadata both in textual and graphical simple descriptions. Please see the following two templates:
