AbstractThe last two decades have brought us a tremendous improvement in numerical methods, and the eld of computer simulations has been established as the third pillar used to increase our knowledge of natural science. As such it is of equal importance as experiments and theory in sharpening our understanding of the complex real world phenomena. It is undeniable that the increase in computer power experienced in the last two decades has enormously contributed to boost simulations. One one hand, as the computer power increases so does the ambition of the researchers to describe even more complex systems which involve large di erences in the spatial and time scales of their components. On the other hand, it is also clear that brute force alone will not pave the way to solving those issues. In the last decade the introduction of smart algorithms have been more pro table to science than the simple improvements in turn of pure CPU power. Therefore there is still an urgent and constant need for more e cient and clever algorithms, as well as for improved theoretical frameworks. Such achievements are of great interest for the scienti c community as a whole, but here in this special issue we would like to highlight achievements and novel simulation approaches to certain areas of polymeric and soft matter systems.
