The 8th Multiscale Materials Modeling (MMM) international conference will be held during the week of October 9-14, 2016 in France at the Dijon 'Palais des Congres' in the heart of the Burgundy region.

The MMM conference series is the world’s largest theoretical and computational materials science forum. Held every two years in Europe, North America and Asia since 2002, the MMM conferences have gathered about 500 participants from around the world. Presentations, with their interdisciplinary scope and equal attention to methods and applications, set the current state-of-the-art in the field.

Plenary speakers will give lectures on important recent advances. The 14 symposia will focus on a broad range of topics addressing traditional and emerging themes of MMM through invited and contributed talks and poster sessions. Participation by students and early career scientists is welcome and encouraged. 

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Dijon!
