Discovering new materials is an important direction for the development of science worldwide. The use of advanced numerical models makes it possible to reduce the time required for developing and obtaining novel materials with predefined mechanical, thermal, optical, or electronic properties.
Computer methods not only allow the determination of material properties at nano, micro, and macro scales, but also allow for multi-scale analyses of phenomena occurring in those materials at various time and length scales. Methods like ab initio including DFT, MD, MC, and CA but also FEM, BEM, or FDM are some of the most commonly used in the analysis of direct problems.
Designing new materials often requires the selection of appropriate chemical composition, thermomechanical treatment, or shape of microstructural features, as well as their topology. These tasks can be solved using inverse techniques based on both global and local optimization algorithms.
This Special Issue welcomes the submission of all papers in which aspects of the computer modeling of new materials are discussed.
Therefore, we kindly invite you to submit a manuscript to this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
