The aim of this symposium is to bring together researchers working in the field of computational mechanics at the atomistic, molecular and electronic scales. Contributions on novel developments in electronic structure methods, atomistic simulation tools and techniques, as well as computational methods that connect atomistic/electronic scales with physical theories operating at higher spatio-temporal scales are invited. Research highlighting the use of such computational methods in investigating materials or mechanical phenomena at different length/time scales is also welcome.
