Proposal: Materials Modeling
Our site is scheduled to live as "Materials Modeling" on Tuesday:
That comment also suggests a Meta discussion that is "more open" than this one "What should this site be called?", which was limiting answers to the name only and forced discussion into comments (sorry about that! I was just copying the name proposal format of the OR site!).
Some suggestions came up in that Discussion post:
1) Matter Modeling (matter.se)
2) Modeling of Matter (matter.se)
3) Molecular and Materials Modeling (mmm.se)
4) Modeling Matters (mm.se)
5) Materials Modeling (materials.se) ← i.e. remain the same
This makes me consider that the original name I chose "Materials Modeling" might be too restrictive for people modeling material fragments, clusters, or other types of matter that comprise the final material, or for people that use the same techniques & software as materials modelers, but for modeling molecules. At the same time, "matter" might be too broad because matter can range from quarks to galaxies. "Molecular and Materials Modeling" might be a happy middle-ground.
