EVENT: National Australian Symposium on Integrated Computational Materials Engineering

When: Monday 19th February 2018, 9:00AM – 6:30PM AEDT
Where: University House Woodward, 185 Pelham Street, Victoria 3010


Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) is an emerging discipline which seeks to accelerate the development of new materials by linking models of the manufacturing process to the composition and structure and hence properties of the material, enabling the rapid design and development of materials for specific applications at low cost.

The National Australian Symposium on Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) will bring together researchers from universities and government laboratories, and end-users, manufacturers and designers from industry to review the current state of the art, with a particular focus on the discipline in Australia. The primary goal of this first Symposium is to assist in building the necessary collaborative links and chart a common, future pathway. In doing so, the Symposium will develop a roadmap for the advancement of ICME in Australia.
