Materials science and engineering is undergoing a major shift of paradigms towards more efficient digitalisation and integration and reuse of data and knowledge from modelling, characterisation, synthesis and production. This is manifested by the emerging of multiple disciplines falling under the overarching topics of
In this symposium, we call for an open discussion and exchange of the recent technical and scientific challenges involved in developing and interoperable representation of materials and process as driver for the digital materials age. These include recent developments ontologies, materials data schemas that allow representation of workflows, processes and materials in a digitalised manner. Artificial intelligence and machine learning approaches that leverage these digitalised representations and last but not least, avenues to integrating various existing simulation and characterisation tools into common open integrated simulation platforms.
Several lectures in this session are presented by EMMC ASBL members.
