Because of their special biological, chemical, mechanical and optical response, advanced materials play an increasingly important role in human life. Modeling and optimizing their response, which sensitively depends on composition and architecture and a rich variety of physical processes, brings new challenges to areas of applied mathematics ranging from modeling and analysis to scientific computing and machine learning. Motivated by recent advances in materials science enabled by mathematics, this Symposium brings together experts in the field to illustrate effective strategies, to expose mathematicians to emerging issues in the area, and to identify directions for future progress. The aim is to initiate and foster collaborations between applied mathematicians and materials researchers working in the new Advanced Materials and Liquid Crystal Institute (AMLCI) at Kent State University and in the Center for Nonlinear Analysis (CNA) at Carnegie Mellon University.
