"OpenKIM Directory of Interatomic Model Developers" launched!


The OpenKIM Directory of Interatomic Model Developers is now available at


The directory lists researchers engaged in the development of interatomic potentials and force fields. This is a free resource provided by OpenKIM to help researchers engaged in molecular simulation to connect with model developers in order to find interatomic models and to form collaborations. The following information is provided for developers in the directory:

  • Affiliation

  • Description of their work

  • Material systems for which they develop interatomic models

  • Bibliography of key references related to their model development work

  • Contact information (web or e-mail address)

This information is provided by the developers.

If you would like to appear in the directory, fill in the registration form at https://openkim.org/new-model-developer
