Welcome to the Cyberinfrastructure for Atomistic Materials Science (CAMS)! The focus of this cyberinfrastructure is to advance the field of atomic-scale modeling of materials by acting as a forum for disseminating new atomistic scale methodologies, educating non-experts and the next generation of computational materials scientists, and serving as a bridge between the atomistic and complementary (electronic structure, mesoscale) modeling communities.

We hope you will check back often as the cyberinfrastructure develops over the coming weeks and months. We also welcome your suggestions! Feel free to contact us.

2014 Summer School Presentations

Lecture slides from most of the presentations made at the 2014 TTMS Summer School are now available online. A list can be found at the 2014 online presentations page, and the files with videos can also be found at the program page for the Summer School.

May 20
2014 Summer School Tutorial

We have posted instructions, files, and links for a tutorial using the LAMMPS molecular dynamics software.

Sept 18

All data files that are submitted to CAMS now have DOI names. This will allow for simple and permanent reference to the locations for each dataset. UPDATE: For more information, please visit the forum thread on this topic.


The Structure Database Community

CAMS is one cyberinfrastructure in a diverse community! We provide links here to other online structure libraries with similar goals of advancing atomistic simulations.

Microstructure Library

A library containing virtual samples of atomic scale coordinates of common microstructure features. We hope this collection will accelerate future atomistic simulations of material microstructures by allowing users to bypass the common, though often difficult, step associated with building these structures by hand.

Browse through and download the available microstructures from this site, and also upload microstructures to the library for the modeling community to use.

Summer Schools

CAMS is hosting a series of summer schools to support the goals and development of the compuational materials science community. Other meetings relevant to the community will also be listed here as they become available. Plans for these meetings are still in development! Please check back for further details.

CAMS has travel support available for its hosted events. If desired, you can apply to be considered for travel support on the online registration form when registration opens for the next event.

Coming soon

CAMS is devoted to the goal of guiding and educating the next generation of workers in the compuational materials science field! To help achieve that goal, this site will host video lectures by experts in the field, as well as technical help for common questions and for those starting their own calculations. A forum has been set up so that a more indepth and targeted discussion can be had, and a code repository will be set up for sample routines to download.

Do you have other suggestions for how CAMS can support the community? Feel free to contact us

The CAMS project is supported by NSF grant DMR-1246173.
