Machine Learning (ML) techniques have gained
significant traction in materials science in recent years, revolutionizing
various aspects of the field, including materials discovery and design,
prediction of properties, materials characterization, multi-scale modelling, optimization
of manufacturing processes, structure-property relations, and materials
informatics. The movement toward usage of ML techniques is facilitated by
availability of unprecedented amount of data from experiments and simulations,
quick growth of computer power, and availability of advanced open-source
libraries. As the field continues to advance, machine learning techniques will
likely play an increasingly prominent role in shaping the future of materials
science and engineering.
Topics of interest in this workshop include (not
Possible applications of ML in different materials science
