The fourth International Symposium on Atomistic and Multiscale Modeling of Mechanics and Multiphysics (ISAM4), co-organized by MAP chair Prof. Erik Bitzek, took place August 5th to 8th, 2019. About 80 scientists mostly from Germany and Japan gathered in the Orangerie to discuss the latest scientific developments regarding the atomistic and multiscale modeling of materials. Its aim was to bring together specialists from multiple disciplines to network, exchange and generate new ideas related to tribology, fracture and fatigue, atomistic aspects of plasticity and failure, the structure and property of complex and disordered materials as well as biomaterials and polymers. Of particular interest and spanning the different material classes and use cases were methods that extend the time scale in atomistic simulation and the applications of machine learning and data science approaches in computational material science.
