Integrative Computational Materials Engineering Expert Group

Objective

"Scope of this proposal is to establish a network of stakeholders - an ""Integrative Computational Materials Engineering expert group (""ICMEg"") - aiming at the creation of an open, global standard for information exchange between a heterogeneous variety of commercial and academic simulation tools.

The vision of the ICMEg proposal is
a new strategy of materials and process development, where a variety of academic and commercial simulation tools – present and future – can be easily combined across different process steps and bridging several length scales in a “plug&play” type architecture being based on an object oriented, standardized information exchange. Multi-scale in this context covers electronic, atomistic,mesoscopic and continuum models
The Mission of ICMEg is
• to establish and to maintain a network of contacts to
 (1) simulation software providers around the world
 (2) governmental and international standardization authorities
 (3) ICME type users of simulation software
 (4) different associations in the area of materials and processing
 (5) academic developers of simulation software
• to define an ICME language in form of an open and standardized communication protocol
• to stimulate knowledge sharing in the field of multiscale materials design
• to communicate this standard worldwide to make it widely accepted
• to discuss and to decide about future amendments to the initial standard
• to establish a legal body for a sustainable further development

The Approach of ICMEg to realize both its vision and its mission is to create a global network of all stakeholders in the area of ICME software and users by
• identifying all actors in the field of ICME related simulations
• creating an inventory of these stakeholders
• networking of all identified stakeholders in two international conferences
• composing a directory of all available simulation approaches
• establishing a common language for standardized information exchange
• secure sustainable further the common language by foundation of an international association
• identifying missing models and functionalities and proposing a roadmap for their development"
