The 3rd International Conference on Computational Science

June 2-4 2003

A Bi-location event:
Melbourne (Australia) AND St. Petersburg (Russian Federation)

After the successful ICCS conferences in San Francisco and Amsterdam we are now organizing ICCS 2003.

This is the first call for Papers and Event Proposals for the ICCS 2003 conference.

Details of the conference and the submission procedures can be found below and at the conference web sites.

Introduction: Computational Science is increasingly becoming a vital part of many scientific investigations, affecting researchers and practitioners in areas ranging from engineering, sciences, finance and economics.

New challenges are in the fields of modelling of complex systems, sophisticated algorithms, advanced scientific computing and associated (multi-disciplinary) Problem Solving Environments. Due to the sheer size of these challenges the use of super computing and distributed- and grid based processing is inevitable.

The Conference offers the opportunity to discuss problems and solutions in this field, to identify new issues, and to shape future directions for research.

We invite you to submit a:

  o full paper of 6 to 10 pages (Letter or A4 paper) for oral presentation

  o proposal to organize a technical session, workshop or mini symposium.

Submitted papers have to be original, containing new and original results.

Topics of Interest: The ICCS conference will, among other topics, concentrate on (in no particular order):

* Complex Systems: Modelling and Simulation
* Hybrid Computational Methods
* Grid Computing
* Data Mining and Information Retrieval
* Web and grid based Simulation and Computing
* Parallel and Distributed Computing
* Visualization and Virtual Reality
* New large scale simulation application areas:
  * Finance
  * Economics
  * Biology
  * Chemistry
  * Risk Analyses
* New Algorithmic approaches to existing application area's, e.g.:
  * Weather and Climate Forecasting and Modelling
  * Connectionist Modelling
  * Fuzzy Logic
  * Reliability Engineering
  * Digital Imaging
* Scientific Computing
* Advanced Numerical Algorithms
* Problem Solving Environments (including: Software Component Technology)
* Education in Computational Science

Paper Submission: The submitted paper must be camera-ready and formatted according to the rules of LNCS. See http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html for formatting information. Papers should be of length between 6-10 pages.

For all details with respect to the electronic submission see http://www.science.uva.nl/events/ICCS2003.

Proceedings: The proceedings of the Conference will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. A selected number of papers will also be published as special issues in appropriate journals.
