Welcome to the 2018 eSSENCE-Multiscale Modelling Meeting
11-13 June 2018, Uppsala, Sweden

A special feature of this meeting will be the  European Materials Modelling Council-supported focussed workshop on

Materials and molecular modelling in the 21st century: Physics-based or data-driven? 

Report on the EMMC Workshop

There is currently much excitement about big data and machine learning in materials and molecular modelling, and about the opportunities that these approaches may bring. But are there associated scientific risks and shortcomings? Can we come to an understanding in the community about how physics-based insight and data-driven analysis may complement each other?  Here you find the links to the webpage of the event:


Program, venue, and Information for Presenters

Registration and Abstract Submission   Registration is open!  The deadline for registration and abstracts submission is 18th of May 2018.  Abstracts on the theme of multiscale modelling* in a broad sense and on the data-driven vs. physics-based models theme are equally welcome!  It is of course also perfectly fine to participate without a presentation – there will be many opportunities to participate in discussions.
