Predicting the effect of fine structure on material response to mechanical and thermal loading in different conditions is essential to many technological areas. This challenge gave rise to developments in a few directions including perydynamics, quasi-continuum models and atomistic-continuum coupling models. In this workshop we bring together experts from these fields and focus on current challenges and recent developments.
