Aim and Scope

Multiscale materials modeling is a well-established branch of computational mechanics, computational biomechanics, and computational materials science. It combines existing and emerging methods from interdisciplinary fields to bridge phenomena occurring across different length and time scales that are common to complex material systems often inspired by nature. These studies provide direct insights into how hard and soft materials deform and/or adapt their form and function in response to different mechanical, electrical, magnetic, or environmental exciters, and trace this to underlying mechanisms at the molecular or cellular level. 

The International Conference on Multiscale Materials Modeling (MMM) series is the world’s largest conference series focused on different aspects of MMM. The next conference MMM-11 will be held in September 2024 at the Prague Congress Center, Czech Republic and is expected to gather around 800 participants from around the world. It is hosted by the Institute of Physics of Materials of the Czech Academy of Sciences that is the largest non-university public research institution in the Czech Republic. The conference will focus on both classical as well as new ground-breaking directions in the field. These are mainly: 

  • Mathematical and computational foundation of multiscale methods 
  • Probabilistic modeling and uncertainty quantification 
  • Quantum mechanical studies of structure and properties of materials
  • Microscopic origins and multiscale modeling of plasticity, fracture and fatigue of materials 
  • Multiscale studies of hard materials (crystalline, amorphous), soft and biological materials, multifunctional, hybrid materials and interfaces 
  • Microstructure evolution across multiple length and time scales
  • Design of materials for energy conversion, harvesting and storage
  • Multiscale modeling of nuclear materials and radiation effects
  • Synergistic coupling of experiments with multiscale modeling 
  • Relationships between micromechanisms and pattern formation
  • Hierarchical and nature-inspired materials
  • Additive manufacturing and emerging manufacturing methods 
  • Materials informatics (machine learning, data mining and artificial intelligence) 

We are proud to host three symposia celebrating the life-long contributions of outstanding materials scientists who have made seminal contributions to the field of multiscale materials modeling:

  • Vaclav Vitek honorary symposium on atomistic modeling of materials
  • Ladislas Kubin memorial symposium on microstructure evolution across multiple length scales
  • Wei Yang honorary symposium on multiscale mechanics modeling of materials
