Abstract: Dislocations are line defects in crystals. Their motion and interaction is considered the fundamental mechanism for plastic deformation in metals. Effective models for plasticity have to take into account the collective behavior of many dislocations whose response is influenced by their microscopic arrangement. Considerable effort has been recently devoted to observing, modelling, analyzing and simulating large ensembles of dislocations. This effort involves multiple communities, including applied physics, materials science, solid mechanics and applied mathematics. We propose a minisymposium in three sessions, with the aim of bringing together experts from those diverse communities to share their understanding of the problem from their respective perspectives.
