Dear Colleagues,

You are cordially invited to join us at the the Twelfth International Conference for Mesoscopic Methods in Engineering and Science (ICMMES-2015), July 20-24, 2015.  This year the ICMMES conference will be held in the Beijing Computational Science Research Center (CSRC), Beijing, China. The Local Organizing Committee will be led by Prof. Li-Shi Luo of  Old Dominion University and the Beijing CSRC

As in previous years, short courses designed to help students and researchers new to the field will be offered on the first day of the Conference, Monday, July 20, 2015, followed by four days of technical presentations. More details can be found in the "Program" section on the ICMMES website.

NVIDIA have kindly offered to sponsor an award for the Best Presentation on GPU Computing and Applications. All students and postdoctoral researchers are eligible for the award and the winner, as judged by the scientific committee, will receive an NVIDIA GPU K40.

For the convenience of the participants, we have installed the following functions on ICMMES website:

  1. Conftool: a conference management software for registration and abstract submission. Conftool allows you to create your personal account for ICMMES-2015. The information of your account can be saved and edited later. Further info can be found on the following website:
  2. The registration fees should be paid in US dollars.
  3. For US participants, PayPal can be used to pay the registration fees online in US dollars. PayPal is integrated in Conftool.  To avoid unnecessary transaction fees, we encourage US participants to send checks to Old Dominion University according to the Instructions provided on the ICMMES website.

Several important dates and deadlines:

  • Early registration with discounted fees: by Monday, April 20, 2015.
  • Abstract submission: by April 20, 2015, to be fully considered for oral presentation.
  • Notice of Abstract Acceptance: by Friday, May 15, 2015, for the abstracts received by Monday, April 20, 2015.
  • Abstracts for oral presentations submitted after April 20, 2015, will be considered only if slots are available.
  • Abstracts submitted after April 20, 2015, may NOT be included in the Conference Program.

It is very likely that we will receive a funding to support the researchers in the US to participate in ICMMES-2015. Should we obtain the funding, it will be dedicated to support students, post-doctoral researchers, and junior faculty in the US institutions to attend ICMMES-2015. For more details, please check "Travel Support" under "Logistics" on the ICMMES website.


We would appreciate it very much if you could help us to distribute this announcement to those who may be interested in ICMMES. Also, we would encourage you to register on the ICMMES mailing list.
