The workshop will take place in Reykjavik (Iceland) on June 1-3 2015 in conjunction with the International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS). If you are interested to participate send your abstract by December 15, 2014.
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 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.
Accepted papers will be published by Elsevier in the open-access Procedia Computer Science series before the conference. A selected number of (extended) papers will be invited after the conference to the special issue of the Journal of Computational Science, Elsevier (Impact Factor 1.567) http://www.journals.elsevier.com/journal-of-computational-science/
