Materials Science Community Forum at

The Materials Project runs a forum at intended as a shared space for several computational materials science projects, as well as general discussion about materials science. For the past several years, this effort has been co-run by the OpenKIM project. See About for more information about the forum and its governance.
All questions are welcome here! See our category at


We have an email address at [email protected].
Enquiries via email are always welcome, but please consider using the forum first: if questions or feedback are asked in a public setting, it allows others to benefit from seeing the answer too, and allows more people to participate in the conversation.
