The 6th Conference of the Asian Consortium on Computational Materials Science (ACCMS-6) will be held at Biopolis, Singapore, from 6 to 9 September 2011. The conference is jointly organized by the National University of Singapore, Institute of Advanced Studies at the Nanyang Technological University, Materials Research Society of Singapore and Institute of High Performance Computing.

The ACCMS was established in 2000 in order to nurture and promote research and development activities in computational materials in Asian countries. The biennial ACCMS conference has become an international event for exchanging and archiving knowledge on the development of advanced computational methodology and its strong link to material science and engineering applications. The previous ACCMS conferences were successful held in India (Bangalore 2001), Russia (Novosibirsk, 2004), China (Beijing, 2005), Korea (Seoul, 2007) and Vietnam (Hanoi, 2009).


Computational Materials Science (CMS) has emerged as a distinct multidisciplinary branch of science and computer modeling and simulation is playing an increasingly important role in materials science research. ACCMS-6 will provide a platform for computational materials scientists in Asian and world to present their recent results on research and development in CMS. The scope of the conference ranges from fundamental computational methodology (density functional theory and beyond, quantum mechanical based interatomic potentials, molecular dynamic and Monte-Carlo simulation of thermodynamic and kinetic properties at large length and time scales, phase field method of micro-structural simulation, etc.) to its industrial applications of different materials properties.


All computational materials scientists, including graduate students, from Asia as well as in other parts of the world are invited to participate in this conference. In addition to the three-day conference (7-9 September) which consists of plenary sessions, invited talks, contributed talks and poster presentation, pre-conference short courses will be held on 6 September to introduce new computational methods and/or emerging computational trends to beginners and those who may be interested in exploring new methods in their research.
