Topical Day – High performance multiscale modelling V

31. May 2018 @ 9:00 - 16:00

High performance multiscale modelling V is scheduled for May 31, 2018, 9:00 – 16:00, at Empa AKADEMY in Dübendorf, Switzerland (near Zurich Airport)


Advanced simulations at nano- to environmental scales and linking of multiple scales, including electronic structure calculations, molecular dynamics, discrete element modelling, Lattice Boltzmann methods, continuum hygro-thermo-mechanical FEM and environmental computational fluid dynamics.

Targeted audience

Scientists, PhDs and postdocs working with advanced computational models at different scales.


This series of Topical Days offers a platform to experts in high-performance multiscale modelling on the latest developments and for sharing experiences. The focus is on solving computationally demanding problems in physics, chemistry, material science and engineering, ranging from nano- to environmental scale. Another point of interest is how to couple such simulations at different scales in an efficient and accurate way. These Topical Days particularly aim to bring together the community at Empa and to link people with different backgrounds and skills.

For this 5th Topical Day, two keynote speakers have been invited to share their latest research: Prof. Harald van Brummelen (Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands) and Prof. Sergey Churakov (Paul Scherrer Institute).

For the remainder of the day, several Empa scientists will present examples of their modelling work at different scales. The progress regarding the available commercial modeling software at Empa (COMSOL Multiphysics, ANSYS, …) as well as the computa-tional hardware at Empa and access to other clusters are also discussed.

General Information

The event is sponsored by Empa and free of charge for the participants, but registration is required.

Registration deadline is May 26, 2018. Online registration can be done here
