The Dutch national research funding agency NWO, the Center for Computational Energy Research (CCER) and Shell are joining forces to initiate an annual Applied Computational Science (ACOS) symposium. The inaugural ACOS event will be held on 10th of October 2018 at the Dutch Institute for Fundamental Energy Research (DIFFER), located at the campus of the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).
The ACOS symposium is a continuation and a broadening of the earlier Computational Science for Future Energy conferences. The goal of the annual symposium is to bring together the Dutch research community, both academic and industrial researchers, in applied computational science. The symposium is intended for all scientists developing and using computational methods to contribute to solving industrial and societal challenges, and is aimed at sharing and discussing developments in the field whilst building an enduring community of practice of Dutch applied computational science researchers.
Each year the ACOS symposium will focus on a single relevant theme. For the 2018, the inaugural event theme will be Applied Machine Learning. This theme will sharpen our view on the rapidly evolving field of data-driven methods. It encompasses subjects as diverse as high-throughput screening in computational materials science, and surrogate models and machine learning for real-time processing and control.
