Multiscale materials modeling has grown into a major materials science and engineering theme. The biennial MMM Conference targets the progress made in various aspects of this field, including theory of materials, computational methods for materials research, and simulations and materials design. Applications-wise, the conference covers the structure of materials at all scales and structural changes, materials properties that emerge from their structures, and design, processing, and optimization of materials for energy, aerospace, defense, biomedical and civil applications. This collection in Materials Theory pulls together research presented at the 9th International Conference on Multiscale Materials Modeling (MMM-2018), held in Osaka, Japan, 28 October-2 November 2018. Contributions from all symposia of the conference are welcome, especially those that carry important theoretical contributions and/or advances in the methodology of multiscale modeling of materials and its applications.
