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 also welcome your suggestions! Feel free to contact us .

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.

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.

Atomic Modelling Software

A growing collection of software currently used by researchers. Includes locally hosted software, as well as documentation, tutorials, and examples.

Presentations

Many of the lecturers at the CAMS Summer Schools have kindly agreed to make their lecture slides available, as well as videos of their talks. Our collection covers a wide range of topics from research methodoloy to entrepreneurship.

CAMS Forum

Our forum is the best place to find reports of new additions to the site, as well as ask questions about our collections.

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 suggestions for how CAMS can support the community? Feel free to contact us or to post on the forum.


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