Mesoscopic science, which bridges the gap between microscopic and macroscopic worlds, has attracted increasing attention as the fast development of microscale technologies. Dissipative particle dynamics (DPD) is a coarse-grained method designed for mesoscopic simulations. It has become one of the most widely used methods for mesoscopic modeling due to its simplicity together with high computational efficiency, and flexibility in modeling thermodynamic and kinetic properties. In recent years, the rapid expanding applications of DPD to various research fields have been witnessed. In this workshop, the professors and experts, who have made significant contributions to the theory, algorithms and applications of DPD, are invited to give featured talks. Now, the abstract submission site for the DPD workshop is open! We are inviting you to present your works in the first DPD workshop in China.
