Abstract : The aim of this conference is to bring together scientists who are working on the modeling and simulation of the deformation behavior of materials, and on material microstructural evolution. The focus will be on the interplay between behaviors at different length scales, in particular the atomistic, nano/mesoscales, and continuum aspects necessary to describe the processes that lead to changes in microstructure. Of particular interest are investigations that discuss the bridging of length scales, and the prediction of material properties from theory and computation. Experimental validation of the approaches is also important to differentiate between competing theories. Novel experimental techniques, to guide or verify the modeling and simulation efforts, also pertain to the theme of the conference. The session topics are: Atomistic, Dislocation Dynamics, Microstructure Evolution, Continuum, and Experimental.
