The multi-scale character of molecular simulations is intrinsic in its nature itself as one has to extract from a computation extending over microscopic time and space scales sufficient information to compute properties usually defined at the macroscopic level. However, in the last twenty years or so, one has witnessed several methodological progresses which have allowed to extend, sometimes considerably, the range of scales of the microscopic systems computed in order to obtain properties or reproduce processes. Those methods are grouped under the name of multi-scale methods and have already led to a considerable development of computational materials sciences.
We like to run a conference of the style as know from Gordon Research Conferences, aiming at a size of 100 people (not more than 110). Participants will have the possibility to present their work in poster sessions.
Details for the conference organization are available on the conference web site
