14th Asia Computational Materials Design Workshop -2022

Computational materials design (CMD®) is a computational approach aimed at developing new materials with specified properties and functionalities. The basic ingredient is the use of quantum simulations to solve the materials science problems in order to design a material that suits this specification.  CMD® has proved its high potentiality to impact the real industrial research and development.

With the purpose of imparting the quantum simulations techniques, Asia CMD® Workshop (ACMD) has been organized in Vietnam since 2009 with the cooperation of Osaka University and universities in Vietnam for many times. In 2022, ACMD will be held at PHENIKAA University.

This workshop will provide lectures on cutting-edge research in computational material design as well as hands-on practical training on quantum simulation. The lectures will also cover an overview of the possible role of CMD® in Vietnam, techniques of electronic structure calculations together with their applications to design new functional materials for catalysis, fuel cells, and batteries. And the software owners on the hands-on practical training courses will introduce several simulation packages, which provide efficient first-principles electronic calculation and molecular dynamics simulation.

For the best efficiency of practical training, the hands-on tutorial lectures are for 40 participants at maximum. We welcome participants who are working in the fields of Materials Science, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Medicine as graduate students, experimentalists, and researchers coming from either Academic institutions or Industrial R&D departments. All the special lectures given by the experts in Materials Science and Computing are open freely.

In the workshop, we open the poster session for participants so that they can share their works and discuss with the experts in the fields of Materials Science and Computing. Prizes for the best poster presentations will be awarded at the end of the workshop.
