Aim and Scope

Multiscale materials modeling is a well-established branch of computational mechanics, computational biomechanics, and computational materials science, in which existing and emerging methods from interdisciplinary fields are combined in an attempt to bridge phenomena, that are commonly inherent to complex material systems, across different length and time scales. In essence, MMM provides direct insights on how materials and living matter deform and/or adapt their form and function in response to different mechanical, electrical, magnetic, or environmental exciters, and trace this to material structure and molecular (or cellular) level mechanisms.

The International Conference on Multiscale Materials Modeling (MMM) series is the world’s largest conference series focused on different aspects of MMM. To shed light on recent advances in the MMM scientific community and to define the future directions for this community, the MMM 10 conference will be hosted by Johns Hopkins University (JHU), George Mason University (GMU), Georgetown University, and the University of Maryland (UMD), and will be held in 2022 due to COVID-19 at the Renaissance Harborplace Hotel, overlooking the famed Baltimore Inner Harbor, in Maryland, U.S.A and it is expected to gather more than 750 participants from around the world. The conference will focus on both classical as well as new ground-breaking directions in the field. These include, but not limited to:

  • Mathematical and Computational Foundation of Multiscale Methods
  • Probabilistic Modeling and Uncertainty Quantification
  • Multiscale and Multiphysics Mechanics and Materials
  • Material Classes: Biological, Soft Materials, Structural (Crystalline and Amorphous), Nuclear, Multi-functional, Interfaces, etc.
  • Additive Manufacturing and Emerging Manufacturing Methods
  • Materials Informatics (machine learning, data mining and artificial intelligence)
  • Synergistic Coupling of Experiments with MMM modeling
  • Micro and Nanostructural Evolution
  • Materials by Design
  • Industrial applications

  • History and Background

    The MMM conference series is a biennial international conference, first held in 2002 in London (UK), and rotates sequentially between North America, Europe, and Asia. The MMM conference is a forum for researchers from academia, national laboratories, and industrial research facilities worldwide with interdisciplinary research backgrounds, including but not limited to: mechanics, materials, biomechanics, mechanobiology, advanced manufacturing, mathematics and computational sciences. Nine successful conferences in this series have already been held:
