Workshop: Machine Learning Glassy Dynamics

Amorphous materials such as glasses have been used since prehistoric times, but in recent years their technological applications have rapidly grown. However, despite many decades of research using experiments, theory and computer simulations, fundamental mechanisms such as mechanical properties and stress relaxation in glasses are still poorly understood. In recent years, machine learning techniques have started to be applied to help solve these fundamental questions, creating a new research path to study disordered materials. This workshop is dedicated to understanding the role that machine learning can play in better understanding glasses from a fundamental perspective. The original format should trigger new collaboration work between different actors and help organise this rapidly growing research field.
