This event will be held online.

The collaborative computational projects for biomolecular and condensed matter simulation, CCPBioSim and CCP5, are holding a fourth international conference on the theme of multiscale modelling in Manchester, following on from previous events held in 2014, 2016 and 2018.

The three-day event will bring together leading researchers from biological and materials chemistry to discuss topics of common interest across the spectrum of electronic structure, atomistic and mesoscopic scales and to address the current and future challenges posed by multiscale modelling.
