The NIST workshop on "Atomistic Simulations for Industrial Needs" will be held online on August 5-7.


The NIST Interatomic Potentials Repository project, in collaboration with the KIM project, and the Army Research Laboratories, is hosting a workshop focusing on “Atomistic Simulations for Industrial Needs” from August 5th to 7th, 2020. The event will be held completely virtually using the Bluejeans video conference software and is free for all to attend. If you are interested, please register at the link below before July-30th. If you are an invited speaker you do not need to register. The link also contains a  PDF file containing a tentative agenda and the titles and abstracts for the various presenters. Additionally, we plan on holding a virtual "poster-session", if you are interested in presenting a poster then please provide a title during the registration process and we will contact you with further instructions. Finally, please forward this email to anyone who you think might also be interested in the opportunity!

Atomistic simulations are increasingly being used as a tool to understand and predict properties of materials. The purpose of this workshop is to facilitate interactions between researchers in industry, academia, and government on issues related to the development and use of interatomic interaction potentials.
