Multiscale Modelling and Simulation Workshop 2017 (archived web page)


Modelling and simulation of multiscale systems constitutes a grand challenge in computational science, and is widely applied in fields ranging from the physical sciences and engineering to the life science and the socio-economic domain. Most of the real-life systems encompass interactions within and between a wide range of spatio-temporal scales, and/or on many separate levels of organization. They require the development of sophisticated models and computational techniques to accurately simulate the diversity and complexity of multiscale problems, and to effectively capture the wide range of relevant phenomena within these simulations. Additionally, these multiscale models frequently need large scale computing capabilities as well as dedicated software and services that enable the exploitation of existing and evolving computational eco systems.

This workshop, which is part of the International Conference on Computational Science aims to provide a forum for multiscale application modellers, framework developers and experts from the distributed infrastructure communities to identify and discuss challenges in, and possible solutions for, modelling and simulating multiscale systems, as well as their execution on advanced computational resources and their validation against experimental data.


The call for papers is now closed and all authors have been notified of the outcome of the review. We are proud to announce that we have 14 accepted contributions this year!

The accepted full and short papers will be included in the open-access Procedia Computer Science series and indexed by Scopus, ScienceDirect, and 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.

After the conference, selected papers will be invited for a special issue of the Journal of Computational Science (Impact Factor: 1.078, 5-Year Impact Factor: 1.553).
