To promote advancement of computational science in general and computational
materials science in particular, in Asian countries
To undertake and actively support research & development and innovations
in computational materials science.
To identify and give thrust to state-of-the-art simulation tools used for
real materials in different length scales (from nanoscopic to macroscopic)
and different time scales (from picosecs to secs). Examples : Density Functional
Theory and its improvements, Monte Carlo and Molecular Dynamics simulations,
tight-binding and effective medium approaches, order-N methods, mixed-basis
methods, quasi-continuum approach, quantum Monte Carlo, genetic algorithm,
etc. and to create a depository for usage by the member.
To emphasize collaborative development of original program packages and
also parallel programs on new methodologies and large scale simulation
tools and their applications.
To establish strong link with experimentalists in member countries working
on novel materials, which enable symbiosis in creative design of materials.
To provide students' education : (a) remote education with virtual realities
through computer simulations, with emphasis on graphical applications,
(b) exchange of graduate course students, and (c) evaluation, credit and
To form `virtual laboratories' in computational materials science and exploit
the existing computational resources for mutual benefit.
To ensure active professional contact with other materials research societies
such as MRS (Boston), IUMRS, Asia-Pacific Academy of Materials, Third World
Academy of Sciences (Trieste), ESF and TMR-networks (Europe).
