Computational modeling of Complex Materials across the Scales CMCS 2019
The international ECCOMAS Thematic Conference “Computational Modeling of Complex Materials across the Scales (CMCS)” will take place on 1-4 October 2019 in Glasgow, UK.
The objective of CMCS is to elucidate cutting-edge developments in multi-scale computational modelling of complex materials, possessing distinct fine-scale structure and/or exhibiting coupled phenomena. Particular emphasis is on emergent coarse-scale behaviour due to the underlying fine-scale structure. CMCS thus focuses on both the (experimentally informed) modelling of complex fine-scale structural phenomena, and on their upscaling to coarser scales. CMCS will gather scientists from different disciplines working on scale-bridging challenges in complex materials to advance the field significantly. CMCS will foster inspiring and rewarding discussion and will serve as a platform for establishing and nurturing links between researchers.
The format of CMCS consists of invited lectures by experts in the field. In addition, there will be a limited number of contributed poster presentations by emerging young investigators (PhD students in all stages of their PhD programs, postdocs and young researchers, under the age of 35).
