CALL FOR PAPERS: Special Issue on Scientific Machine Learning for Manufacturing Processes and Material Systems

Share This Post

Computational modeling, simulation, and optimization of manufacturing processes and materials systems have been a persistent endeavor of the engineering research community at large. The two primary factors that achieved significant progress in this field are exponential increases in computing power and the incorporation of data-driven modeling methods. Process and systems modeling often involve expensive and time-intensive simulations and experiments, but incorporation of machine learning (ML) models as efficient surrogate models could potentially enhance the understanding and reduce the optimization cost of the concerned processes and systems.

However, there is a rising need to go beyond the conventional data-driven techniques to address challenges, such as the presence of noise in data, limited budget, data sparsity, and lack of interpretability of ML models. Tackling these issues will enable more comprehensive modeling of manufacturing processes and discovery of novel material systems. From this, the new paradigm of Scientific Machine Learning is emerging, seeking to incorporate domain-awareness, interpretability, and robustness into the models and modeling techniques.

Special Issue on Geometric Data Processing and Analysis for Advanced Manufacturing

Geometric information, such as three-dimensional (3D) shapes and network topologies, has been increasingly explored in manufacturing research. For example, characterizing geometric information in 3D-printed parts, in-situ or ex-situ, opens opportunities for defect detection, quality improvement, and product customization. However, geometric data mining remains critically challenging. Geometric information is embedded in complex data structures, such as 3D point clouds, graphs, meshes, voxels, high-dimensional images, and tensors, which possess challenges for analysis due to their high-dimensionality, high-volume, unstructured, multimodality characteristics. Additional challenges stem from compromised data quality (e.g., noisy and incomplete data), the need for registration, etc.
