The inaugural SIAM Symposium on Computational Aspects of Materials Science will be part of the program for the fall 2014 meeting of the Materials Research Society. The meeting will be held in Boston, November 30 to December 5, 2014; details can be found at the conference website. The SIAM symposium (number NN), is included in the cluster of symposia titled Theory, Characterization and Modeling. The symposium is sponsored by the SIAM Activity Group on Mathematical Aspects of Materials Science.
The call for papers can be found here. Abstracts should be submitted through the MRS conference website; the window for abstract submission is May 19 to June 19, 2014.
The proceedings of the symposium will be published through the MRS Proceedings Series, both electronically and in print. The electronic publication is hosted on the Cambridge Journals Online platform.
The organizers especially encourage postdocs, pre-tenure faculty, and graduate students to participate by submitting contributed papers to the SIAM symposium. Subject to availability, we anticipate funds to defray lodging, registration, and travel costs for up to 16 postdocs, pre-tenure faculty, or graduate students at $1500 per individual.
The Materials Research Society holds its annual fall meeting at the Hynes Convention Center in downtown Boston. It is a comfortable venue, and the conference is well attended, with more than 6000 participants from different scientific disciplines. It is a forum for scientific interaction on contemporary problems in materials science.
