7th International Conference on Material Modelling

Location: Cape Town, South Africa

Date: 29 November-2 December 2022

The 7th International Conference on Material Modelling will be held in Cape Town, South Africa, arguably the most beautiful city on the planet. This biannual conference is the seventh in the successful ICMM series. The first ICMM took place in 2009 in Dortmund, Germany. The conference has since then been organized in Paris, Warsaw, Berkeley, Rome, and Lund in Sweden. Held for the first time in the Southern Hemisphere, ICMM7 will bring together researchers from around the world, who are involved in the various fields of material modelling and material characterization.
