Modeling and simulation of multiphysics multiscale systems poses a grand challenge to computational science. To adequately simulate numerous intertwined processes characterized by different spatial and temporal scales (often spanning many orders of magnitude), sophisticated models and advanced computational techniques are required. The aim of the workshop on Simulation of Multiphysics Multiscale Systems (SMMS) is to facilitate the progress in this multidisciplinary research field. We provide an overview of the recent trends and latest developments, with special emphasis on the research projects selected for presentation at the SMMS’2007 workshop.
