ICAMS²: International Colloquium
on Advanced Materials Simulation

Modelling and simulation may contribute to predict the behaviour of materials and to facilitate the design of materials with specific properties. This requires a multiscale materials modelling framework that is based on the fundamental laws of nature and links the electronic modelling hierarchy through the atomistic and mesoscale modelling regimes to macroscopic materials behaviour.

The Interdisciplinary Centre for Advanced Materials Simulation (ICAMS) was launched in 2008 with the aim of advancing multiscale materials modelling from electrons to engineering materials. On the occasion of the 5th anniversary of ICAMS, the International Colloquium on Advanced Materials Simulation ICAMS² will summarize recent developments and advances in the field during a two day meeting on May 6-7, 2013 at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum in Bochum, Germany.
