The 2011 International Conference on Computational Science and Its Applications (ICCSA 2011) will be held on June 20-23, 2011, at the University of Cantabria, Santander (Spain).
ICCSA 2011 is the next event in the series of highly successful International Conferences on Computational Science and Its Applications, previously held in Fukuoka, Japan (2010), Suwon, Korea (2009), Perugia, Italy (2008), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2007), Glasgow, United Kingdom (2006), Singapore (2005), Assisi, Italy (2004), Montreal, Canada (2003), and, as ICCS, in Amsterdam, The Netherlands (2002) and San Francisco (2001).
Computational Science is a main pillar of most of the present research, industrial and commercial activities and plays a unique role in exploiting ICT innovative technologies.
The ICCSA Conference offers a real opportunity to bring together scientists of different disciplines, discuss new issues, tackle complex problems and find advanced solutions breeding new trends in Computational Science.
The proceedings of the conference will be published by Springer-Verlag in Lecture Notes for Computer Science and CPS of the IEEE Computer Society. The authors of a selected number of top quality papers will be requested to extend their paper in order to be published as special issues in highly recognized international journals.
