Multiscale Theory and Computation

An International Conference Honoring
Mitchell Luskin on the Occasion
of his 65th Birthday

University of Minnesota, Minneapolis

September 23-25, 2017

Multiscale modeling, theory, and computation have made fundamental contributions to many areas of physical, chemical, and biological sciences. Recent theoretical and experimental advances present new challenges for multiscale theory and computation. This conference will seek to stimulate new approaches and collaborations by bringing together both senior and junior researchers with expertise spanning molecular to continuum scales and stochastic to deterministic methods.
