1. To promote advancement of computational science in general and computational materials science in particular, in Asian countries
  2. To undertake and actively support research & development and innovations in computational materials science.
  3. To identify and give thrust to state-of-the-art simulation tools used for real materials in different length scales (from nanoscopic to macroscopic) and different time scales (from picosecs to secs). Examples : Density Functional Theory and its improvements, Monte Carlo and Molecular Dynamics simulations, tight-binding and effective medium approaches, order-N methods, mixed-basis methods, quasi-continuum approach, quantum Monte Carlo, genetic algorithm, etc. and to create a depository for usage by the member.
  4. To emphasize collaborative development of original program packages and also parallel programs on new methodologies and large scale simulation tools and their applications.
  5. To establish strong link with experimentalists in member countries working on novel materials, which enable symbiosis in creative design of materials.
  6. To provide students' education : (a) remote education with virtual realities through computer simulations, with emphasis on graphical applications, (b) exchange of graduate course students, and (c) evaluation, credit and certificates.
  7. To form `virtual laboratories' in computational materials science and exploit the existing computational resources for mutual benefit.
  8. To ensure active professional contact with other materials research societies such as MRS (Boston), IUMRS, Asia-Pacific Academy of Materials, Third World Academy of Sciences (Trieste), ESF and TMR-networks (Europe).
