--  TOPICS --

Multiscale materials modelling is a well-established branch of computational materials science with an interdisciplinary approach that combines condensed matter and statistical physics, computational chemistry, mechanical and materials engineering, biomechanics and computer science.

The general aim is to bridge length and time scales in the modelling of complex material systems in response to different mechanical, electrical, magnetic, or environmental perturbations. Multiscale materials modelling enables the prediction of the material’s function and the design of optimized new materials and structures with improved functionalities.

 Conference topics (but not limited to) are: 

* Multiscale and multiphysical aspects of materials modelling

* Mathematical and computational foundations of multiscale approaches

* Material classes: structural, multi-functional, nano/microstructured materials bioinspired and soft materials

* Material properties: elasticity, fracture, damage, plasticity, thermos-mechanics, viscosity.

* Non-standard/non-local continuous formulations for materials with microstructure.

* Multi-scale design and optimization

* Multi-objective homogenization-based topology optimization

* Atomistic/Molecular models and applications to continuum mechanics problems

* Statistical and mesoscale materials modelling.

* Hierarchical/Concurrent multiscale modelling approaches

* Additive manufacturing, architected materials and metamaterials.

* Data-driven material design and artificial intelligence

* Synergistic coupling of experiments with multiscale modelling.


The Proceedings will be published in on a special number of

Advanced Structured Materials https://www.springer.com/series/8611

After the conference selected talks will be invited to prepare full journal papers to submit, under standard peer-reviewing process, in special issues of one of the following international journal

Composite Structures https://www.sciencedirect.com/journal/composite-structures

journals (but not limited to), in which the conference chair and the members of the organizing committee has role as editorial board members, associate editors or editors in chief (agreements to be defined)


The organizing team is composed of scientists from three different European institutions who all have an active and prominent research track record, in particular in the field of multiscale materials modeling. Furthermore, most of the team members have a very prominent role in the scientific community and have active experience in organizing international conferences as well as members of steering, executive, scientific committees, members, symposia co-organizers, plenary speakers, and invited speakers.
