Many methods have been developed to deal with the resulting computational problems, using several different approaches. In the field of Soft Matter the host of available methods is particularly broad. This meeting aims at bringing together researchers with different and complementary backgrounds, ranging from physicists to chemical engineers and applied mathematicians, who are experts in their respective fields. The goal is to promote the efficient application of advanced numerical methods through a deep understanding of the physical and mathematical background. It is anticipated that a discussion of the relevant questions will lead to a comparison of observations, a sharing of procedures, and foster new collaborations among a multidisciplinary group of scientists and engineers working on an important contemporary problem.
The format of the meeting is planned as a two-day tutorial, followed by a three-day workshop.
