Scope

Dynamics of biological and soft materials often exhibits large-scale, ultra-slow time evolution which can easily become several orders larger than typical microscopic length- and time-scales. Hence, effective simulation methods for bridging between different length- and time-scales are strongly desired.

The 2nd international symposium "Multi-scale Simulations of Biological and Soft Materials (MSBSM2011)" will be held in Kyoto during September 10-12, 2011. The symposium aims to review the current state of the art in multi-scale simulations for bio- and soft-materials by bringing together those working in the area to highlight the latest advances in applications and methodologies. We invite those interested in the field to join the symposium and present their recent research. The topical themes include computational methods for intermolecular forces, computational modelings for fluids and soft materials, coarse-graining methods, hybrid methods of micro/meso/macro simulations, non-equilibrium simulations, etc.
