The MMS thematic track 2023 is a part of the International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS) on 3-5 July 2023 on “Computation at the Cutting Edge of Science”.
The final paper submission deadline: 6th March 2023.
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 ecosystems.
This MMS track 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.
Key topics of the MMS track include:
- Simulation and modelling of multiscale systems.
- Challenging applications in science, industry or society (e.g. in computational biology).
- New approaches for coupling and scale bridging, to combine different models and scales in one application.
- Advanced numerical methods for solving multiscale problems.
- Uncertainty quantification and sensitivity analysis in multiscale simulations.
- Verification and validation in a multiscale modelling context.
- Software approaches for simulating multiscale systems, and handling the complex workloads accompanying it.
- Executing multiscale models on advanced and/or heterogeneous computing environments (HPC, clouds, hybrid, distributed etc.).
- Performance analysis of multiscale applications and/or tools.
We kindly invite you to submit a paper or abstract reporting original, unpublished research and recent developments in the broad area of modeling and simulation of multiscale systems. Depending on your preferences, there are several options for submission available.
Full or short papers
You can submit your paper through the ICCS EasyChair system. Please be sure to select the Thematic Track on Multiscale Modelling and Simulation as your target track. Full ICCS papers are 12-15 pages, written in English and complying with the Procedia format, while short papers are 6-8 pages.
Out of the submitted full papers to the main track and thematic tracks, 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.
After the conference, selected papers will be invited for a special issue of the Journal of Computational Science (Impact Factor: 3.976).
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. Abstracts, too, are submitted through the ICCS EasyChair system.
Paper submission: 3 February 2023
Notification of acceptance: 3 April 2023
Camera-ready papers: 21 April 2023
