Non-equilibrium thermodynamics embodies a vibrant field of active research dedicated to a better description of equilibrium and dynamical properties of systems evolving out of equilibrium. The sixth installation of the Mainz Materials Simulation Days (MMSD) will cover state-of-the-art methodologies to simulate non-equilibrium systems in computer simulations. It gathers scientists of different backgrounds and expertise, from statistical physicists to biomolecular modelers, who can provide an original view over several different aspects of non-equilibrium processes in soft matter systems. In particular, this workshop will focus on various aspects of
- the description of theoretically-sound methodologies to simulate non-equilibrium systems
- the extension of non-equilibrium phenomena to coarse-grained models
- the prospects for in-silico manipulation of structure formation via control parameters and external factors.

The MMSD are a series of international discussion meetings focusing on method developments in computational materials science. The workshops are jointly organized by the groups of Prof. Kurt Kremer at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research and Prof. Friederike Schmid at the Physics Institute of the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz.
