Development of nanoengineering technologies and creation of nanomaterials opened new perspectives for a number of areas of industry and everyday life. These materials demonstrate increased strength, toughness, biocompatibility, and can ensure higher service properties, reliability and lifetime of devices and systems.
Having nanostructuring and nanoengineering technologies as the tools to enhance the service properties of devices and machines, we are faced with the question – which structures of nano-enhanced materials should we aim at in order to ensure the requirements? To make the development and optimization of nanostructured materials realizable in practice and efficient computational models and software codes for the virtual, numerical testing of these materials are necessary.
In order to develop computational modeling tools for the analysis of nanostructured metals, a European FP7 research project "Virtual Nanotitanium" (VINAT) has been started in 2011. . The International Conference is organized in the framework of this project, and will cover the following topics:
- Computational models of mechanical behavior and physical properties of nanomaterials, linking their nanostructural and service properties, 
-  Nanoscale physics reflected by continuum or force fields models: assumptions and limitations, 
-  Continuum mechanics, molecular dynamics and quantum ab-initio methods as tools for virtual testing of nanomaterials, 
- Multiscale modeling and coupling of scales, 
- Thin films (including a special session organized by the Virtual Institute of Nano Films), 
-  Nanocrystalline metals, metal nanoparticle assemblies, nanostructured shape memory alloys, carbon nanomaterials, biocompatible materials and peculiarities of their modeling, 
-  Experimental validation and practical applications of computational models of nanomaterials.
