Interactive Materials Talks "Simulation and Data Driven Material Design"

Gaining and further developing a comprehensive theoretical understanding of (bio)material systems and their behavior in contact with living matter is crucial for state of the art material design and development. This also includes learning more about how guided material developments based on theory-based predictions can be implemented.

We are delighted to host some inspiring speakers of simulation and modelling research fields that will give us insights into their research. Also we will have the opportunity to discuss with them new data-driven research approaches for inverse material design to expand a general understanding of complex material systems.

Dear colleagues, 

We would like to invite you to the Interactive Materials Talks "Simulation and Data Driven Material Design".

The symposium will take place on Thursday, March 14, 2024, starting at 10 a.m. in the seminar room of the Leibniz Joint Lab "first in Translation".

We look forward to seeing you there and to inspiring discussions.

The symposium will take place in the seminar room of the new DWI building, the "Leibniz Joint Lab 'first in Translation' ". The seminar room is on the ground floor and cannot be missed.

The Leibniz Joint Lab is located in the second row behind our main institute building (Forckenbeckstr. 50, 52074 Aachen).

Enclosed you will find a map showing how to get to the building from the street.

If you are traveling by public transport, the best way to reach us is via the "Wendlingweg" bus stop, which is located directly on Forckenbeckstraße.
