Leverhulme Research Centre for Functional Materials Design Inaugural Symposium

Registration NOW OPEN

Call for Posters – deadline extended to 11 June 2018

3-4 September 2018, Liverpool, UK

Developing new high-performance materials is critical to enable next-generation technologies for society. New systematic and effective approaches to this problem are required given the slow pace with which new materials have traditionally been discovered when relying on serendipity and chemical intuition. The complexity and the multi-scale nature of the relationships between material's structure and its properties makes the design of a material with given properties one of grand scientific challenges of our times. The Leverhulme Research Centre for Functional Materials Design is moving this forward by fusing leading-edge synthesis concepts from the physical sciences with ideas from the forefront of computer science, alongside experts in robotics, engineering, management and social science.

This symposium brings together experts across different scientific disciplines united by the common goal of accelerating materials discovery to discuss important themes such as grand challenges, the integration of computation and experiment, algorithms, and high throughput methods.

Keynote speakers include:
