"The Engineering Virtual Organization for CyberDesign (EVOCD, https://icme.hpc.msstate.edu) is dedicated to the accumulation of the “intellectual capital” pertaining to ICME. In fact, it is the organization’s capital that attracts community participation. There are three critical aspects to the process of accumulating capital in order to create a relevant organization: (1) protection of intellectual property, (2) quality assurance of information, and (3) the management of complexity. In a competitive environment in which materials research and development is performed, protection of the intellectual property is imperative. While the information meant for public consumption must be clearly attributed to its creators, the innovative research may require a restriction of information (e.g., pre-publication or proprietary data) exchange to only a narrow group of collaborators. The VO must support the former and enforce the latter. Quality assurance of the information must include its pedigree and then its validation, followed with approval by either a curator or a peer-review process. The management of complexity implies that the information must be easily navigable through intuitive interfaces, yet all complexity of the underlying infrastructure must be hidden from the end user. Furthermore, the information must be understandable to students and directly and efficiently accessible to practitioners." https://icme.hpc.msstate.edu/mediawiki/index.php/About_EVOCD This is a catalog of data and software related to materials research at every scale.
