Abstract :



Energy, environment, and water are the keywords of the 21st century for sustainable human societies that need to be addressed by all disciplines of science and technology. In particular, addressing these urgent problems is often related to the design of new materials that are green, energy-efficient, and cost-effective. Traditional ways of developing new materials, however, are often too expensive and take long time even for first screening. Computational materials science is a discipline that uses extremely powerful computer resources to solve these materials problems. Computational materials science now plays a more important role than ever before since the unprecedented development of computer technology over the last few decades where we now can routinely perform additions and multiplications billion times in just 1 second using a modern computer, for example. In this talk, I will give examples where computational approaches are crucial for knowledge-based smart design of new energy and environmental materials (lithium battery, thermoelectric, fuel cell, CO2 capture, carbon nanotube-baed desalination materials, and etc), and also the need for developing new theories and computational methods to make these efforts even faster and more accurate.



Recent large scale applications such as scientific simulation, CAD, and entertainment applications (e.g., movies and games) require to process massive databases of complex geometric data on various commodity hardware. In many visualization and interaction

applications, the main performance bottleneck is typically in accessing these massive geometric data because of the consistent lower growth rate of data access speed compared to that of computational processing speed. Moreover, recent multi-core architectures aggravate this phenomenon. Therefore, it is expected that the current architecture improvement does not offer the solution to the problem of dealing with ever growing massive geometric data, especially in the case of using commodity hardware.

In this talk, I will give an overall view on orthogonal approaches, multi-resolution, cache-coherent layout, and data compression methods, to design scalable visualization and interaction techniques.
