This symposium (11.4) will address the use of new computational techniques (from atomic to continuum scale) to uncover fundamental science in materials interfaces and their role in mechanical properties. Theoretical and computational advances as well as the application of existing methods to new cases where interface information is important (e.g. nanograined materials) are in the scope of this session. Areas of interest include but are not limited to:
