FSU scientific computing department hosts international conference
Date:10/22/2008

explained. "Thus, one has to know the material response at lengths ranging from the size of the engine component down to intermolecular distances."

Increasingly, scientists are modeling the behavior of materials in different environments by using sophisticated mathematical and computational algorithms. This development has attracted mathematicians and computational scientists to the multiscale materials modeling field, which is a new science and engineering frontier that transcends the boundaries between the traditional disciplines of mechanics, physics and chemistry of materials.

"The increasing interest in this field by mathematicians and computational scientists is creating opportunities for solving computational problems in the field with an unprecedented level of rigor and accuracy," El-Azab said.

Computational algorithms are especially emphasized in this year's conference program, "Tackling Materials Complexities via Computational Science," which is inspired by the research mission of FSU's newly created Department of Scientific Computing.

The conference includes symposia with focus areas in statistical models of materials, mechanics of materials across scales, computational materials design and biological and soft matter response, as well as the response of materials under extreme conditions in the nuclear reactor environment.

FSU Francis Eppes Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry Harold Kroto, who won a Nobel Prize in 1996 for his co-discovery of "buckyballs," will give the opening plenary on "Architecture in Nanospace" at 9 a.m. Oct 27.

Other speakers making presentations throughout the conference include Nasr Ghoniem, University of California Distinguished Professor at the University of California, Los Angeles; Subra Suresh, the Ford Professor and Dean of the School of Engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Stephane Roux, a professor at Ecole Normale Superieure de Cachan; and Bennett
