PACE A Partnership for an Advanced Computing Environment

October 3, 2011


Filed under: Events — admin @ 2:27 pm


I invite you to attend a technical seminar: “MAterials DEsign @ Georgia Tech” (MADE@GT) on Friday Oct. 14, 2011 @ the Georgia Tech Hotel & Conference Center, from 9A-5P.  The complimentary event also includes free continental breakfast, lunch, and closing reception.

The MADE@GT seminar (agenda below) consists of 10 technical talks around a unifying theme of the “Materials Genome Initiative” (MGI), which is designed to drastically accelerate advanced material design and manufacture via modeling and simulation subsequently coupled with fabrication and characterization of the engineered materials …see attached for more on all that…

MGI is part of the overarching White House OSTP/PCAST “Advanced Manufacturing Partnership” (AMP). Georgia Tech President Bud Peterson is on the AMP Steering Committee.  The first regional AMP mtg. will also be held at Georgia Tech on October 14th.

Both the AMP meeting & MADE@GT are co-located in the GT-Hotel on Oct. 14.  Attendees at AMP can attend MADE@GT, and vice versa.  There will also be a poster session devoted to topics mutual between AMP & MADE@GT.
