Purpose: To provide a platform for knowledge exchange and for academics as well as training for graduate students interested in the area of Computational Materials Science across multiple scales of space and time as well as the latest advances in materials informatics for materials discovery and design.

Objectives: At the end of this course, attendees should have a thorough overview of some of the most important computational tools currently in use to investigate materials phenomena at multiple scales, ranging from the continuum to the electronic structure level.

Structure: The School is organized in thematic sessions focused on different computational techniques. The themes will be organized in a bottom-up manner, starting with simulation tools at the atomistic level (Module 1), mesoscale (Module 2) and the continuum (Module 3), with a final integrative module on materials informatics and design (Module 4). The final program will be updated on the website by March 20th but it is expected to be very similar and with a similar set of instructors as the 2017 edition, found here.

The course duration will be 10 days over two weeks. Morning sessions will consist of an overview of the method, with the afternoon sessions dedicated to hands-on computational laboratory activities.

Who should attend: This school is aimed at graduate students, postdocs, junior scientists and engineers in academia, national laboratories, and industry who would like to learn more about state of the art techniques in computational materials science.

Financial assistance: A limited number of fellowships will be made available to qualified students.
