Amaravati: Dr D Gunasekaran, Registrar of SRM University-AP, said the university encouraged the young researchers through UROP where the students individually or in a group took up mini-projects under the guidance of the faculty.
He was welcoming the guests to the international conference on computational material sciences at SRM-AP campus here on Wednesday.
Several international and national researchers along with members of ACCMS and Fracmeet organisations are taking part in the two parallel international conferences hosted by SRM University-AP from Wednesday.
The three-day conference was inaugurated by Prof Yoshiyuki Kawazoe, Tohoku University, Japan, Dr Purusattam Ray, IMSc, Chennai, Dr B Sivakumar, Deputy Registrar and Prof Durga Rao, Dean-SLABS. Dr Gunasekharan said the SRM-AP has collaboration with the University of California, Berkeley where students are sent for semester abroad programmes. "The University is also collaborating with Indian Railways to build Hydrogen Trains, and Amara Raja Group on energy storage," he said.
Addressing the conference Prof Yoshiyuki Kawazoe said, "Computational material was not a coined term in Japan when we started off this organisation 20 years back. It is envisaged that the conduct of the International Conference on Material Genome at SRM University, Andhra Pradesh will lay the foundation for an active center of ACCMS on campus."
Fracmeet conferences are being organised for over a decade to focus on an aspect of Material Science – "Mechanical Properties of Complex Materials." For the first time, SRM AP, having exceptional infrastructure and facilities, is hosting this conference in collaboration with IMSc.
