The recent decades have witnessed rapid advances in particle methods such as smoothed particle hydrodynamics, dissipative particle dynamics and molecular dynamics. Particle methods have different numerical schemes from the grid-based numerical methods, and have attracted more and more researchers from all over the world for various applications. This min-symposium focuses particles methods for dynamic problems from continuum to discrete material, from macro scale to micro scale, from novel algorithms to constructive modifications, and from numerical methods to engineering applications. In one word, the mini-symposium aims to provide an international forum for the presentation and showcase of recent advances on various aspects of particle methods and their applications in engineering and sciences. The particle methods include, but not limited to 1) the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH), 2) the Discrete Element Method (DEM),3) Moving Particle Semi-implicit Method (MPS), 4) Material Point Method (MPM), 5) the Dissipative Particle Dynamics (DPD), 6) the Molecular Dynamics (MD) .
