Multiscale Modelling and Simulation Workshop 2018


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.


We kindly invite you to submit a paper reporting original, unpublished research and recent developments in the broad area of modeling and simulation of multiscale systems. Depending on your preferences, there are two options for submission available.

Full papers

You can submit your paper through the ICCS EasyChair system. Please be sure to select the Workshop on Multiscale Modelling and Simulation as your target workshop. All ICCS papers are of up to 10 pages, written in English and complying with the Procedia format.

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.

After the conference, selected papers will be invited for a special issue of the Journal of Computational Science (Impact Factor: 1.748, 5-Year Impact Factor: 2.009).

Abstract only

Although we encourage you to submit a full paper, alternatively you can advertise your work in a form of a short presentation. In this case you need to provide an abstract paper that will be published in a conference’s book of abstracts, but not in Procedia Computer Science. Abstracts, too, are submitted through the ICCS EasyChair system.

Both types of submissions should be submitted electronically through the EasyChair Submission Engine

Important Dates
