ICCS 2016 – San Diego, USA

“Data through the Computational Lens”

The International Conference on Computational Science is an annual conference that brings together researchers and scientists from mathematics and computer science as basic computing disciplines, researchers from various application areas who are pioneering computational methods in sciences such as physics, chemistry, life sciences, and engineering, as well as in arts and humanitarian fields, to discuss problems and solutions in the area, to identify new issues, and to shape future directions for research.

ICCS 2016 in San Diego, USA, will be the sixteenth in this series of highly successful conferences. Located on the Pacific coast of California, San Diego is known for its beautiful beaches and parks, warm climate and world-class attractions like SeaWorld and the San Diego Zoo (see the location page for more information on San Diego and California).

Since its inception in 2001, ICCS has attracted increasingly higher quality and numbers of attendees and papers. Average attendance each year is about 350 participants. The proceedings series have become a major intellectual resource for computational science researchers and serve to both define and advance the state of the art of the field. An archive of the previous meetings is available through the Previous ICCS conferences page.

Out of the submitted full papers to the main track and workshops, we will select some 30% high-quality papers for presentation at the conference and publication in the proceedings. These are published by Elsevier in the open-access Procedia Computer Science series and indexed by Scopus, ScienceDirect, Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation (former ISI Proceedings) – an integrated index within Web of Science. The papers will contain linked references, XML versions and citable DOI numbers.

ICCS is well known for its excellent line up of keynote speakers. Confirmed so far are:


  • Rommie Amaro, University of California, San Diego, USA
  • Jackie Chen, Sandia National Laboratories, USA
  • Slawomir Koziel, Reykjavik University, Iceland
  • Larry Smarr, University of California, San Diego, USA
  • Sauro Succi, Istituto per le Applicazioni del Calcolo “Mauro Picone” (C.N.R.) and University of Roma, Italy and Harvard University, USA

The theme for ICCS 2016 is Data through the Computational Lens. This conference will be a unique event focusing on recent developments in: scalable scientific algorithms; advanced software tools; computational grids; advanced numerical methods; and novel application areas. These innovative novel models, algorithms and tools drive new science through efficient application in areas such as physical systems, computational and systems biology, environmental systems, finance, and others.

We look forward to welcoming you to this exciting event in California!
