ICCS 2019 – Faro, Algarve, Portugal
“Computational Science in the Interconnected World”
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 2019 in Faro, Portugal, will be the nineteenth in this series of highly successful conferences. Located at the southern end of Portugal, Algarve is a well-known touristic haven. Its Mediterranean climate makes the region a favorite for sun-seekers from all over the world at any time of the year.
Besides some of the best and most beautiful beaches in the entire world with fine sand and crystal-clear water, Algarve also offers amazing natural landscapes, a rich folk heritage, and a healthy gastronomy that can be enjoyed throughout the year, attracting millions of foreign and national tourists every year.
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 Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series and indexed by Scopus, EI Engineering Index, Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (included in ISI Web of Science), and several other indexing services. 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:
- Tiziana Di Matteo, King’s College London, UK
- Teresa Galvão, University of Porto / INESC TEC, Portugal
- Douglas Kothe, Exascale Computing Project, USA
- James Moore, Imperial College London, UK
- Robert Panoff, The Shodor Education Foundation, USA
- Xiaoxiang Zhu, Technical University of Munich, Germany
The theme for ICCS 2019 is “Computational Science in the Interconnected World”, to highlight the role of Computational Science in an increasingly interconnected world. 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.
ICCS is committed to enhancing diversity and inclusion in the conference, without regard to race, age, religion, ethnicity, nationality, ability, gender identity, sexual orientation, or gender expression.
ICCS is an A-rank conference in the CORE classification.
