EMMC-CSA Workshop on Industrial impact of materials modelling – achievements and perspectives

 

The EMMC-CSA partner, POLITO is organising a Workshop on “Industrial impact of materials modelling – achievements and perspectives”

on July 8-10, 2019, at Sala Teatro, SiTI (Istituto Superiore sui Sistemi Territoriali), Turin, Italy


For detailed information on schedule, accommodation … please visit the event page!


Workshop objectives

The objective of this meeting is therefore to gather a consistent number of experts from the different stakeholders interested in materials adoption/development, and provide a discussion platform for industrial requirements as compared to state-of the-art modelling techniques. The ambition of the workshop is to cover the more relevant aspects which are critical to the widespread adoption of materials modelling techniques in industry. To this, six thematic sessions are organized and will cover:

  1. state-of-the-art modelling techniques and guidelines for further model developments;
  2. the perspective of the European software owners/developers;
  3. the economic impact of materials modelling on industrial innovation;
  4. strategies for improving the two-way transfer of knowledge between academia and industry – i.e. Translators and their training requirements;
  5. interoperability requirements and frameworks – e.g. ontologies – for integration of models and software. Finally, a special session will be dedicated to the discussion of the potential of artificial intelligence in the framework of materials modelling, with particular emphasis on the benefit for high-throughput simulations, big data and their mining – e.g. data-driven modelling – towards Industry 4.0.

Organisation, Contact & Support

This is an “Invitation-only” event. You will be contacted by the organisers. After you have confirmed your participation you will receive the registration link.

EU WORKSHOP ON SUPPORT ACTIONS FOR EUROPEAN INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGIES (NMBP / RFCS)

 

 

 

EMMC-CSA, represented by Nadja Adamovic (TU Wien and EMMC-CSA coordinator) took part within the Workshop of Industrial Technologies Support Actions on April 4, 2019, organized by DG for Research & Innovation in Brussels.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This workshop was participated by up to 34 coordination and support actions funded in the NMBP part of Horizon 2020 and RFCS. The purpose of the workshop was to look at the output of the coordination and support actions in the area of industrial technologies, in order to make the most of this valuable resource; identify lessons learned; and show the way forward with regard to big issues, future funding and future policies.

EMMC Workshop on “Reproducible workflows using AiiDA 1.0”

 

Date     May 21-24, 2019

Venue   EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland

This 3.5-day tutorial is designed to get Master students, PhD students and Postdocs from the field of computational materials science started with writing reproducible workflows. Participants will be introduced to the state of the art in workflow management and high-throughput computations by experts in the field, and gain in-depth hands-on experience using a tool that they can directly apply to their own research.

There are still a few spots left in the tutorial on writing reproducible workflows using AiiDA. We’ve extended the registration deadline, and remaining spots will be given out on a “first come, first served” basis – so be quick!

For more information and registration, head over to the tutorial web site.

Our tool of choice is the AiiDA framework for workflow management and provenance tracking, which is backed by a significant community of users and developers, and has interfaces to more than 20 materials science codes (see plugin registry), including to the ab initio codes Quantum ESPRESSO, VASP, cp2k, Castep, Siesta, Fleur, Crystal, NWChem, Wannier90, and Yambo. AiiDA’s permissive open source license (MIT) enables participants to use it both in academic and commercial settings. By virtue of its general design and flexible plugin system, AiiDA is easily extended to new codes and new use cases.

  • The first day will serve as an introduction to AiiDA for novices,  and is designed to be skipped by participants with previous AiiDA experience (as determined by an online questionnaire during registration).
    In order to avoid losing time on installation issues, participants will have the option to connect to virtual machines preconfigured with AiiDA (or to come with AiiDA already installed on their laptop).
  • The remaining 2.5 days will include the highlight talks by the invited speakers as well as in-depth tutorials on writing AiiDA workflows, given by the organizers and six core developers of AiiDA. An online questionnaire will determine the ab initio codes used by participants, and we aim to cover 3 popular codes with explicit examples.
    On the third day, participants will have the choice to explore advanced aspects of workflow management or to focus on designing a new AiiDA plugin.

Looking forward to seeing you at EPFL in May!
– The AiiDA Team

EU Industry Days 2019 – Report on EMMC organised session “Data for Materials and Manufacturing”

 

EU Industry Days 2019 was held from 5-6 February 2019 in Brussels. The conference focused on key industrial challenges such as sustainability, digitalisation, investment and globalisation. The event aimed to demonstrate how EU industrial policy benefits European citizens and to provide input for future policy making. There were around 1,500 participants from across Europe and beyond, including stakeholders representing industry, trade unions, national and regional authorities, and civil society.

EMMC organised a Stakeholder Session “Data for Materials and Manufacturing”. The main question to answer was, how to increase European capacity to extract knowledge from materials and manufacturing data? A huge wealth of data remains untapped within silos, unused for impacting on innovation in materials and manufacturing. A strategic approach to digitalisation is required involving stakeholders from materials, manufacturing and digital technologies: an alliance pursuing the goal of a common semantic basis ensuring access to and interoperability of data.
