Modelling and simulation of multiscale systems constitutes a grand challenge in computational science, and is widely applied in fields ranging from the physical sciences and engineering to the life science and the socio-economic domain. Most of the real-life systems encompass interactions within and between a wide range of spatio-temporal scales, and/or on many separate levels of organization. They require the development of sophisticated models and computational techniques to accurately simulate the diversity and complexity of multiscale problems, and to effectively capture the wide range of relevant phenomena within these simulations. Additionally, these multiscale models frequently need large scale computing capabilities as well as dedicated software and services that enable the exploitation of existing and evolving computational eco systems.

This workshop aims to provide a forum for multiscale application modellers, framework developers and experts from the distributed infrastructure communities to identify and discuss challenges in, and possible solutions for, modelling and simulating multiscale systems, as well as their execution on advanced computational resources.

This workshop is a successor of the series of workshops on Simulation of Multiphysics Multiscale Systems organized over the last 10 years.
Specific topics include (but are not limited to):
  • Modelling of multiscale systems
  • Novel approaches to combine different models and scales in one problem solution, scale bridging methods
  • Challenging applications in science and society or in business
  • Advanced numerical methods for solving multiscale problems
  • Verification and validation of multiscale models, including error analysis
  • Environments and frameworks for simulation of multiscale systems
  • Executing multiscale models on advanced computational infrastructures (distributed, HPC, cloud, etc.)
We cordially invite you to submit a paper, a presentation, or, a poster with a short paper, presenting the results of original research or innovative practical application in the area of modelling and simulation of multiscale systems.

Papers of up to 10 pages, written in English and complying with the Procedia format, should be submitted electronically through the ICCS submission engine.

When submitting your paper/presentation/poster please don't forget to select the workshop: Multiscale Modelling and Simulation, and notify us by an email to
