Nanostructure research is defined by a scale - the nanometer length scale. Simulation of nanostructures, however, must be multiscale in its very nature. It is not the nanostructures themselves that open the horizon to new opportunities and applications in all walks of life; it is the integration of nanostructures into large systems that offers the possibility to perform complex electrical, mechanical, optical, and chemical tasks.
