Modeling and simulation methods play an increasingly important role in academic research as well as in industrial applications. This topic provides a platform for presenting and discussing the current developments in linking processing, microstructure evolution and functional and mechanical properties of materials. Various methods for material modeling will be covered, with a special emphasis on scalebridging materials modeling. With metals, ceramics, glasses, polymers and composites, all classes of materials will be covered, with a wide spectrum of applications as functional, lightweight and high-strength materials.
In this call, we advertise proposals for symposia within the topic Modeling and Simulation. In particular, symposia are encouraged that cover several length/time scales or that combine experiment and modeling with the purpose of parameterization and validation of material specific models.
