The subject of this meeting was mathematical modeling of strongly interacting multi-particle systems that can be interpreted as advanced materials. The main emphasis was placed on contributions attempting to bridge the gap between discrete and continuum approaches, focusing on the multi-scale nature of physical phenomena and bringing new and nontrivial mathematics. The mathematical debates concentrated on nonlinear PDE, stochastic dynamical systems, optimal transportation, calculus of variations and large deviations theory.
