The school aims to provide an overview of some of the powerful computational methodologies available to bridge time and length scales in soft matter/biophysics. This year, the school will cover a range of topics including: hydrodynamics, density functional theory and mesoscale approaches. The school will take place at the ITZ Fulda in Fulda from Sep 26 to 29 2017 and is co-organized by the integrated research training group of the Collaborative research center 146 "Multiscale Simulation Methods in Soft Matter Physics" (CRC146 The school is directed both to postdocs and PhD students of the CRC146 and to external attendees. The expected number of attendees is 30. Invited lecturers
