Incorporating Sustainability Principles into Your Research (Mar 29, 2016 10:30 AM)

This presentation presents and overview of how the use of manifold learning methods can be used not only to search for targeted properties among an existing database but to also discover new structure-chemistry-property relationships. The value of using these methods is to identify pathways for discovery. The focus of this talk is to advance a new paradigm in which one explores the structure of data to ascertain and uncover relationships that would not be easily identified via computational and/or experimental methods. Examples are given in crystal chemistry, alloy design and chemical imaging.

Part I: Overview: The Materials Genome Initiative - Opportunities and Challenges

Mar 28, 2016 8:30am ‐ Mar 28, 2016 5:00pm

Identification: Tutorial MD1.01

The Materials Genome Initiative (MGI), launched by President Obama in 2011, envisions the creation of a three-component materials innovation infrastructure where computational tools, experimental tools and digital data are brought together along with a cultural shift in materials research towards more collaborative and open research to accelerate advanced materials development and deployment. The MGI (aka Materials by Design) approach is a theory-driven approach where computational design of new materials and materials properties directly guides the experimental materials development.


The integrated panel of instructors, experts at the forefront of Materials by Design, covered all components of the materials innovation infrastructure and demonstrated, through example, how the envisioned collaborative MGI research environment can be realized. The perspectives of both senior researchers and younger scientists who are normalizing this new approach were presented.

Part I: A Framework for Evaluating Sustainable Development - Five Step Methodology

Mar 28, 2016 1:00pm ‐ Mar 28, 2016 5:00pm

Identification: Tutorial EE15.01

Materials enable technologies and infrastructure that play a crucial role in worldwide development and that increasingly impact the earth’s climate, water and resources. To identify pathways towards sustainable development, students and researchers must appreciate the multiple factors involved using a systems perspective. What is the balance sheet of impacts considering material sourcing, manufacturing, operation and end of life? What are the direct, indirect and unintended consequences?


Understanding these issues requires frameworks for analysis, insights across disciplines and effective means to engage participants in topics that are often outside their “comfort zone” of knowledge. This tutorial presented effective means to teach these approaches based on the extensive and complementary experience of the instructors. But in addition to educating the upcoming generation of materials researchers, this tutorial appealed to today’s materials scientists, engineers and technology managers who seek to identify, articulate, and implement changes that improve sustainability while enhancing the bottom line of their organizations.
