MADE in SC Call for Podium and Poster Presentations
The SC EPSCoR Program invites Materials Assembly and Design Excellence in South Carolina (MADE in SC) Faculty, Post-doctoral Fellows, Graduate Students, and Undergraduate Students to submit abstracts for podium presentations and poster presentations at the 2022 SC EPSCoR State Conference. Abstracts for MADE in SC podium presentations and poster presentations on any of the topics listed below must be submitted according to the abstract format.MADE in SC Students must provide their research mentor contact information.
MADE in SC Topics. Abstracts that address research topics related to the following are encouraged:
• Modeling and Computation Core (MCC). The goal of the MCC is to develop multiscale models and computational tools synthesizing theories, methods, and infrastructure to provide optimized solutions for the materials system. Supporting goals are the development of advanced multiscale theoretical foundations, fast algorithms to handle high throughput computations, high resolution/fidelity imaging and visualization, and big data analytics including uncertainty quantification.
• Research Thrust 1 – Hierarchical Structures with Controlled Optical, Electrochemical, and Magnetic Properties. The goal of Thrust 1 is to explore the inorganic crystal structure and mesoscale assembly of hybrid inorganic and organic materials to control and tailor their optical and magnetic properties. These designed materials and assemblies will exhibit multi-functional, correlated, collective properties leading to, e.g., materials for enhanced energy transfer for lasing and harvesting applications.
• Research Thrust 2 – Stimuli-Responsive Polymeric Materials. The goal of Thrust 2 is design and develop synthesis strategies for polymers able to respond to external cues leading to, e.g., materials for efficient water treatment and self-repairing materials for harsh environments.
• Research Thrust 3 – Rational Design of Interactive Biomaterials. The goal of Thrust 3 is to develop a fundamental understanding of the effect of physical and chemical signals on cellular behavior across a range of length scales, leading to the development of interactive biomaterials, e.g., for use in regenerative medicine.
