New CEN Workshop on Materials modelling terminology, classification and metadata 

The proposed subject “Materials modelling terminology, classification and metadata” has its origin in the Review of Materials Modelling (RoMM) and the Materials Modelling Metadata (MODA) elaborated in the context of the European Materials Modelling Council (EMMC). The EMMC aims to network with all existing materials modelling related activities in Europe and make use of the EMMC network to complement these activities. The workshop seeks to establish a common terminology in materials modelling which should lead to simplified and much more efficient communication, especially benefitting industrial end users in their understanding and lowering the barrier to utilising materials modelling. The end result is the adoption of a CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA), a best practices document for further standardisation efforts and input for the development of a future certification scheme.

The kick-off meeting will be held on 17 January, at the premises of Fraunhofer EU Offices in Brussels, Belgium. All interested parties are welcome to register for participation and submit comments on the draft project plan to Jacopo Troise.
