Computer simulations play a major role in science nowadays. Together with Theory and Experiments it allows a better comprehension of natural phenomena by giving informations otherwise unreachable. Indeed, computer simulations are applied in almost every branch of science, from physics, chemistry and biology to the study of complex multidisciplinary problems, such as in material science. Today Brazil has a large community of researchers who use computer simulations in the development of their research projects. In this context, the Brazilian Meeting on Simulational Physics has been held since 1997, agglomerating researchers from Brazil and abroad, working in the most diverse branches of physics. The first BMSP took place in Belo Horizonte in 1997, two years later the second BMSP was also held in Belo Horizonte. The third, fourth and fifth editions of the event were held in Ouro Preto in 2003, 2005 and 2007. In 2011, the sixth edition of the BMSP was held in Cuiabá, followed by the seventh in João Pessoa in 2013 and the eighth in Florianópolis in 2015. The ninth edition celebrated the 20th anniversary of the event in 2017 in Natal. In this tenth edition the event returns to Minas Gerais and will be held in Ouro Preto as a Satellite Meeting of the 27th International Conference on Statistical Physics, StatPhys 27, of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) that will take place in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from July 8th through 12th, 2019. The X-BMSP will gather scientists specialized in simulation in the most diverse areas of physics, chemistry, biology and materials science, to present the latest advances in methodology and techniques applied to the study of problems through computer simulations. The event will also promote interaction among scientists working in this area, with the goal of advancing the methods and techniques available today. This topic covers the interests of researchers who traditionally have different experiences and belong to communities that share similar interests but have little communication with each other. Finally, this workshop will be an opportunity for the community working in this area in Brazil to interact directly with scientists of similar interests, coming from Brazil and abroad. In view of the wide variety of techniques covered, the event will promote pedagogical lectures given by two invited professors in the form of mini courses for students of various levels, as well as oral communications and panels to be presented by all invited participants and collaborators
