The 6th Asian Materials Data Symposium (AMDS2019) was successfully held at Shanghai University from April 15th to 18th, 2019. This symposium was sponsored by SHU Materials Genome Institute and Materials Genome Branch of Chinese Materials Research Society (C-MRS), co-organized by Asian Materials Data Committee (AMDC), University of Science and Technology Beijing (USTB), National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), Vietnam Institute for Materials Science, Korea Research Institute of Chemical Technology (KRICT), Korea Institute of Materials Science (KIMS), Korea Institute of Ceramic Engineering and Technology (KICET) and Materials Genome Institute of Shanghai University. The chairman of the symposium is the academician Prof. Zhang Tongyi. More than 100 experts and representatives from the institutions of higher learning and research institutions in the United States, Germany, Japan, Belgium, Vietnam, South Korea, India, Hong Kong and mainland China attended the event.
Opening speeches were delivered by Prof. Zhang Tongyi, Chairman of the symposium, and Ms. Le Thi Hong Lien, Chairman of AMDC. Topics discussed include material database and data management, new material R&D methods driven by data, high-throughput experiments and computational data, etc., attended by academician Peter Voorhees from Northwestern University, Prof. Yuri Grin from Max-Planck Institute for Solid State Research, Prof. Yibin Xu from NIMS, Dr. Le Thi Hong Lien from Vietnam Institute of Materials Science, Dr. Zachary Trautt from National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Dr. Ho Won Lee from KIMS, as well as well-known experts and scholars from the institutions of higher learning and research institutions in UK, US, Japan, Belgium, India and other countries. There were also guests coming from domestic universities such as City University of Hong Kong, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, University of Science and Technology Beijing, University of Science and Technology of China, and South China University of Technology. Participants made wonderful presentations and fully demonstrated advanced achievements in the field of material data both at home and abroad, providing a platform for researchers and material data users in Asia and other countries to exchange and cooperate, and making material database achieve the goal of internationality, universality and cooperation.
The symposium had a strong academic atmosphere, and the participants were enthusiastic in exchanging their ideas and sharing their experiences. The symposium has played a positive role in promoting academic & technological exchanges and international cooperation in the field of material database between Asia and other countries. The Committee decided upon discussion that the 2021 Asian Materials Data Committee will be held in Japan.
