<IIS UTokyo SYMPOSIUM No. 101>

The fourth International Symposium on Atomistic and Multiscale Modeling of Mechanics and Multiphysics

August 5-8, 2019

Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), Germany

Following the success of three former meetings (Tokyo 2011, Tokyo 2013, Brno 2016), the fourth ISAM4 meeting will be held at FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany, in August 2019.


This symposium is intended as an international forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest scientific developments regarding the atomistic and multiscale modeling of materials.
We aim at bringing together specialists from multiple disciplines to network, exchange and generate new ideas related (but not limited) to

As well as to discuss methods for extending the time scale in atomistic simulation and the application of machine learning and data science approaches in computational material science.
