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.
We would like to announce a summer workshop "Transformational Technologies in Molecular Simulations", May 19-22, 2014 at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, WI. You can find more information on the workshop website, on our meetings pages, as well as the 2014 Summer School forum thread if you would like to make comments.
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.
- Interface Structure Data Bank (Cornell University) - A resource for studying and sharing interface atomic structures.
- Interatomic Potentials Repository Project (NIST) - A repository providing a source for interatomic potentials.
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.
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.
- 2013 Summer School: was held at the University of Florida in Gainesville on May 20-24. Photos and presentations from this Summer School are available online.
- Upcoming event! 2014 Summer School: to be held at the University of Wisconsin-Madison on May 19-22, 2014. Applications for registration are being accepted now! Please visit our meetings page for more information.
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.
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.

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