This grant supported the workshop Multiscale Theory and Computation, which was held during September 23-25, 2017, at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. There were more than 60 participants from the US, Europe, and Asian. There were 23 presentations, and also a dozen of posters. The workshop focused on future directions and challenges for multiscale modeling, analysis, and computation with applications to materials science, quantum and molecular mechanics, fluid and solid mechanics, chemistry, electronics, and optics. Each of the plenary talks presented the state-of-the-art for a mathematical approach or application area, and follow-up discussions explored opportunities for cross-fertilization of methods across application areas. The workshop provided a unique venue for both senior and junior, theoretical and computational, multiscale researchers to exchange ideas on the progress of current multiscale research and develop future collaborations. The discussion of a broad spectrum of multiscale areas and the interaction between theory and computation provided a fertile environment for the further development of interdisciplinary research. This was particularly helpful for the younger researchers looking to enter these new and promising areas of multiscale research and application.
