CECAM/Psi-k Research Conference:
Multi-scale Modeling from First-Principles

Platja d´Aro, Spain, September 08-13, 2013


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 and bio-physics.
We like to run a conference of the style as known from Gordon Research Conferences with 30 minute talks by experts followed by a 25 minute long discussion.

!!! The workshop will be held at the
in Platja d'Aro, Catalonia, Spain, from September 08-13, 2013.
