Dear Colleagues,

Phanish Suryanarayana (Georgia Tech), Amartya Banerjee (UCLA) and I cordially invite you to submit an abstract for the symposium titled "First Principles Simulations and Their Applications to the Mechanics of Materials" as part of the 2020 Society of Engineering Science 57th Annual Meeting (SES 2020) to be held on September 28-30 2020 at Hyatt Regency Minneapolis. The symposium is listed under Advances in Nanomechanics track on the submission website. To submit an abstract, please visit:
https://umn.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_29bre73nB2CYzdj

The deadline for abstract submission is March 17th, 2020. Further details on the conference and abstract submission can be found at the conference website:

Please feel free to contact me (swarnava@caltech.edu) or Phanish Suryanarayana (phanish.suryanarayana@ce.gatech.edu) or Amartya Banerjee (amartya.s.banerjee@gmail.com) for any questions or concerns. A description of the scope of our mini-symposium is as follows:

 First Principles Simulations and Their Applications to the Mechanics of Materials

In recent years, first principles (i.e., quantum mechanical) simulations have become increasingly popular among mechanicians to accurately model the behavior of materials at the atomistic and electronic scales. These methods allow various multi-physics phenomena to be modeled seamlessly and they hold the promise of enabling mechanicians to understand the atomic-constituent-dependence of constitutive relations.
This symposium aims to bring together researchers working on various aspects of first principles simulation methods, as well as those involved with the application of such methods to problems in the mechanics of materials. Topics of interest to this symposium include but are not limited to recent progress in:

  • formulation and implementation of novel first principles methods.
  • applications of first principles methods to problems in the mechanics of materials (such as the study of the core structure of defects)
  • usage of first principles methods to the study of phenomena that couple mechanical and electronic/optical/magnetic properties in materials.
  • formulation and implementation of techniques that couple first principles methods with models operating at higher spatio-temporal scales.

Sincerely

Swarnava, Phanish and Amartya
