ICCS 2013 – An Overview

The 13th Annual International conference on Computational Science,was held 5-7 June 2013 in Barcelona, Spain  at the elegant  CCIB Congress center on the beach.

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.

Since its inception in 2001, ICCS has attracted increasingly higher quality and numbers of attendees and papers and this year is not an exception. Prof. Vassil Alexandrov, leader of the Extreme Computing group in BSC, has been involved with ICCS conference series since its inception having organized the first ICCS in 2001 in San Francisco and the 2006 one in Reading and this year’s event.  This year we had  circa 500 participants, with over 120 of  them being young scientists, PhD and MSc students. This is the third largest ICCS event after the conferences in Beijing and Reading.

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. We are proud to note that ICCS is an ERA 2010 A-ranked conference series. In addition to the main track there were 22 workshops covering wide spectrum of scientific and research areas. From the submitted papers to main track and workshops, we selected about 295 high-quality papers for presentation at the conference and publication in the proceedings. The papers selected for publication are published by Elsevier and can be found on the following Web site. Selected papers will be also published in the Journal of Computational Science.

The theme for ICCS 2013 was "Computation at the Frontiers of Science", to mark the ever-increasing importance of and the progress in computational science theory and practice at the frontiers of science. The conference was  a unique event focusing on recent developments in computational methods for modelling complex systems in diverse areas of science, scalable scientific algorithms, advanced software tools, computational grids, advanced numerical methods. Novel application areas where the above models, algorithms and tools can be efficiently applied such as physical systems, computational and systems biology, environmental systems, finance, but also humanities and socio-economic systems. ICCS 2013 also featured the important advances in computational science towards exascale computing.
