Speakers: M. Arroyo, B. Bourdin, C. Garcia, Q. Du


We inform you that due to the Coronavirus outbreak the conference willl be entirely ONLINE

Since 1994, every 2 to 4 years the SIAM Materials Activity Group organizes the SIAM Conference on Mathematical Aspects of Materials Science. In 2021, the Conference will be organized in collaboration with the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics and will take place online, from 17-28 May 2020. 

This conference focuses on interdisciplinary approaches that bridge mathematical and computational methods to the science and engineering of materials. The conference provides a forum to highlight significant advances as well as critical or promising challenges in mathematics and materials science and engineering. In keeping with tradition, the conference seeks diversity in people, disciplines, methods, theory, and applications.
