An interesting approach to load-balancing of cell-based parallel molecular dynamics simulations will be presented. The computational domains of different processes are associated with phase fields. A driving force is introduced that drives the system towards a balanced load distribution among the processes, while the interface energy between different phase fields reduces the amount communication. Scaling results are shown for different test cases.
