MRS 2005 Fall Meeting November 28 - December 2, 2005 Boston, MA, USA MRS Symposium LL Combinatorial Methods and Informatics in Materials Science In the past 10 years, combinatorial, and/or high-throughput, and artificial intelligence methods have permitted scientists to rapidly explore new and complex systems in materials and device research and development. As a consequence to this aim, numerous novel research programs and products have emerged from a variety of universities, national laboratories, and industry research groups. This symposium will bring together scientists from disciplines such as materials sciences, chemistry, physics, electrical engineering, chemical and mechanical engineering, informatics, and systems engineering to share the successful studies and illuminate current challenges in four major technical areas: combinatorial fabrication of new materials and novel devices; high-throughput methods for materials and device characterization; artificial intelligence methods and software development; and combinatorial approach in undergraduate and graduate research. Session Topics Papers are solicited in the following principal topical areas: * Combinatorial fabrication of new materials and novel devices o Functional materials, electronic materials, nanomaterials, and biomaterials o Homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts o Polymer composites o Millireactors and millifluidics o Combinatorial compounding and formulation o Ink-jet dispensing and continuous gradient methods * High-throughput characterizations of materials and devices o Microinstrumentation o Rapid characterization of composition and microstructure o Mechanical, thermal, and optoelectronic properties o Fluid properties such as rheology, stability, and structure o Algorithms for high-throughput optimization of materials and process parameters * Artificial intelligence methods and software development o New screening principles and ideas o Library fabrication and experimental design o Computational combinatorial chemistry and high-throughput screening techniques o Informatics, efficient user interfaces, and statistical and data mining techniques o QSPR and QSAR techniques o Traditional ab-initio and semi-empirical quantum methods o Quantum Monte Carlo, density-functional approaches, and tight binding techniques o Force-field-based molecular mechanics, dynamics, and Monte Carlo simulations o Mesoscale and multiscale modeling, molecular modeling, and graphics approaches * Combinatorial approach in undergraduate and graduate research Invited Speakers Invited speakers (partial list)include: Arik Aleksanyan (National Academy Armenia), Eric J.
