The 2016 International Union of Materials Research Societies – International Conference on Electronic Materials (IUMRS-ICEM) will be held from 4 to 8 July 2016 in Singapore. Among the 14 symposia covering various topics of electronic materials, we are organizing Symposium N - Materials by Theoretical/Computational Design. This symposium covers all topics of computational materials science, with a focus on materials design by the genomic approach. Pioneers in materials genome (Gerbrand Ceder, Kristin Persson, Stefano Curtarolo, Matthias Scheffler, Chris Wolverton, Shyue Ping Ong, ……) will present their latest work and share their experience.

The deadline for abstract submission has been extended to 29 February 2016. If you are interested in attending the conference, please submit your abstracts at the conference web site http://www.mrs.org.sg/icem2016/ before the end of February.
