Multiscale modeling in materials science, chemistry, and biology: How to meet, greet, and beat scale-bridging challenges
Many interesting research problems cover a broad range of time- and length scales, which are a severe challenge for the multiscale methods developed to date. One of them is that these problems are recursive, i.e., events on longer time-scales influence structure and function on shorter time-scales. The aim of this workshop is to address challenges not covered by standard multi-scale simulation methods, highlighting examples from different fields such as friction, organic semiconductors, heterogeneous catalysis and biological function. Leading scientists cover both state-of-the-art and novel simulation concepts and theoretical approaches to address such scale-bridging problems via tailored combinations of quantum- chemical, molecular dynamics, coarse-grained and continuum models.
