It is a pleasure to invite you to submit an abstract to the symposium:
"From Atomistics to Reality: Spanning Scales in Simulations and Experiments"
that we are organizing at the SES 50th Annual Technical Meeting/ASME-AMD Summer Meeting to be held at Brown University in Providence, RI during July 28-31, 2013.
More information on the symposium and a link to submit an abstract is available here:
Roger Fosdick will be retiring this year from his position as Professor of Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics at the University of Minnesota. In his honor, we are organizing a symposium on the "Continuum Mechanics of Solids and Fluids" at PACAM XIII (Thirteenth Pan-American Congress of Applied Mechanics). The conference will be held in Houston, Texas during May 22-24, 2013. More information is available here:
An intensive 4-day short course on the fundamentals of continuum, atomistic and multiscale modeling of materials will be held at AICES in Aachen, Germany during August 14-17, 2012. The course will be taught by Profs. Ellad Tadmor and Ronald Miller. Please see the attached flyer for more information.
Enrollment is limited so early registration is recommended. To register, visit http://www.modelingmaterials.org/short-courses
Please feel free to distribute or post the attached flyer as you like.
Hope to see you in Aachen,
Ellad Tadmor and Ronald Miller
The Knowledgebase of Interatomic Models (KIM) project (http://openKIM.org) is seeking a postdoctoral candidate to sponsor for an NSF Fellowship for Transformative Computational Science using Cyber Infrastructure (CI TraCS). The successful candidate will work closely with the KIM PIs to develop a comprehensive and detailed CI TraCS proposal based on the needs and goals of the KIM project.
Applications are due by Monday, November 14, 2011.
For more information please see the attached announcement. Please feel free to distribute this announcement to anyone who may be interested.
Expert programmer needed for an exciting project at the University of Minnesota involving the establishment of an online infrastructure for the evaluation of the transferability of interatomic potentials used in atomistic and multiscale simulations. The project called KIM -- the Knowledgebase of Interatomic Models -- is funded through the NSF's Cyber-Enabled Discovery and Innovation (CDI) program. For more information see the attached PDF file. The position is available immediately.
Several postdoc positions are available immediately at the University of Minnesota to work on the development of a variety of cutting edge multiscale methods and atomistic simulation techniques. The work will be done in close collaboration with a group of leaders in the field including Prof. Ellad Tadmor, Prof. Richard James, Prof. Mitchell Luskin and Prof. Ryan Elliott.
