About the Symposium

Welcome to the Novel developments in materials informatics” - COST Action Session

Materials informatics is revolutionizing the field of materials science by leveraging data-driven approaches and advanced computational techniques to accelerate the discovery, development, and optimization of materials. By integrating vast amounts of experimental and computational data with machine learning and artificial intelligence, materials informatics enables researchers to predict material properties, identify novel materials, and optimize manufacturing processes with unprecedented speed and accuracy. This interdisciplinary approach not only enhances our fundamental understanding of materials but also drives innovation across various industries, from electronics and aerospace to healthcare and sustainable energy solutions. As we continue to face global challenges, materials informatics stands at the forefront, offering powerful tools to develop the next generation of advanced materials and technologies.

The symposium, co-organized with the EU COST action CA24143 EuMINe - European Materials Informatics Network (https://www.cost.eu/actions/CA22143/) aims to bring together leading researchers, industry professionals, and policymakers to explore cutting-edge advancements in the field of materials informatics, with a particular focus on the applications of advanced materials and manufacturing technologies.

The EuMINe COST Action (European Network for Materials Informatics) is a multidisciplinary initiative that seeks to harness the potential of materials informatics to accelerate research and innovation across Europe. By creating a collaborative platform that bridges science, industry, and management, EuMINe aims to foster the development and integration of new computational tools, data-driven approaches, and machine learning techniques in materials science. Our goal is to enhance the understanding, design, and application of advanced materials, ultimately contributing to technological advancements and economic growth.
