Scope and Topics

Springer LNCS

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting original, unpublished research and recent developments in Computational Sciences. All accepted papers will be included in the Springer 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 2021 invites original contributions on all topics related to Computational Science, including, but not limited to:

  • Scientific Computing
  • Problem Solving Environments
  • Advanced Numerical Algorithms
  • Complex Systems: Modeling and Simulation
  • Hybrid Computational Methods
  • Web- and Grid-based Simulation and Computing
  • Parallel and Distributed Computing
  • Advanced Computing Architectures and New Programming Models
  • Visualization and Virtual Reality as Applied to Computational Science
  • Applications of Computation as a Scientific Paradigm
  • New Algorithmic Approaches to Computational Kernels and Applications
  • Computational Humanities
  • Education in Computational Science
  • Large Scale Scientific Instruments
  • Computational Sociology
  • Medical and Biomedical Computational Science
  • Computational Physics
  • Quantum Computing
  • Uncertainty Quantification
  • Artificial Intelligence in Scientific Computing

As the conference theme this year is “Computational Science for a Better Future”, papers highlighting the role of Computational Science in tackling the current challenges of our fast-changing world will be particularly welcomed.

Paper Types and Publication

Submission Type Published in LNCS Pages (max.)
Full Paper 14
Short Paper 7
Abstract 2

You are welcome to participate in one of the thematic tracks or in the Main Track (if your topic does do fit any thematic track but still falls within the scope of the conference). During submission, you may select either a “Full/Short Paper” or a “Abstract Only” publication. By default, it would be an oral presentation. If you prefer to present a poster, please check the “Poster Presentation” option in the submission page.

While we encourage full paper submissions, the “Abstract Only” option caters to researchers who can only publish in specific journals or work for companies in circumstances such that they cannot publish at all, but still want to present their work and discuss it with their peers at ICCS. In the “Abstract Only” option, a short abstract is published in a book of abstracts, but not in LNCS.

After the conference, the best papers will be invited for a special issue of the Journal of Computational Science (Impact Factor: 2.644)

Instructions for Authors

The manuscripts of up to 14 pages, written in English and formatted according to the Springer LNCS templates, should be submitted electronically via EasyChair.

The most recent versions of the Templates are available for download from this link.
The LaTeX2e Proceedings Templates are also available in the scientific authoring platform Overleaf.
Please also make sure to follow Springer’s authors’ guidelines.

Papers must be based on unpublished original work and must be submitted to ICCS only. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper.

Deadlines for draft paper submission, notification of acceptance, camera-ready paper submission and registration may be found in the Important Dates section.

For the camera-ready version, please note that:

  • ICCS authors interested in open access for their papers (open choice) have the possibility to do so. When you submit your camera-ready paper, if you intend to make it open access, contact us and we will tell you how to proceed.
  • Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers.
  • Springer is now offering the inclusion of embedded videos in proceedings papers.
