College of IS&T to host International Computing Conference in June
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha’s (UNO) College of Information Science & Technology (IS&T) will host the International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS) in Omaha from June 4-6, 2012.
The theme for ICCS 2012 is "Empowering Science through Computing," which was chosen to mark the ever-increasing importance of and progress in computational science theory and practice. The conference will focus on recent developments in methods and modeling of complex systems for diverse areas of science, scalable scientific algorithms, advanced software tools, computational grids, advanced numerical methods and novel application areas, and how the above can be efficiently applied to physical systems, computational and systems biology, environmental systems, finance and others.
Keynote lecturers at the conference will include Dirk Helbing, professor from ETH Zürich; Frederica Darema, director of Mathematics, Information and Life Sciences at the Air Force Office of Scientific Research; Michael L. Norman, director of the San Diego Supercomputer Center; Phillip S. Yu, professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago; and Nin Zhong, professor at the Maebashi Institute of Technology in Japan. Topics for the conference’s keynote lectures will include “Brain Science and Informatics”, “Challenges and Advances on Graph Mining”, “New Frontiers through Computer and Information Science”, “Supercomputing Goes Data-Intensive”, and “Modeling Social Systems.”
In addition to the keynote lectures, the ICCS 2012 conference includes traditional sessions organized into two main track sessions and 24 workshops. Each track is organized and chaired by key leaders in these interdisciplinary computing fields from around the world. The major areas addressed in these tracks include:
• Simulation of Multiphysics Multiscale Systems
• Computational Chemistry and Its Applications
• Computational Optimization, Modeling and Simulation
• Practical Aspects of High-Level Parallel Programming and Applications
• Emerging Parallel Architectures
• Agent-Based Simulations, Adaptive Algorithms and Solvers
• Tools for Program Development and Analysis in Computational Science
• Knowledge representation and applied models and metadata in computational science
• International Workshop on Computational Flow and Transport: Modeling, Simulations and Algorithms
• Dynamic Data Driven Application Systems
• Computational Approaches to Social Modeling
• Social Computing and Web Service
• Computational Finance and Business Intelligence
• Teaching Computational Science
• Large Scale Computational Physics
• Computational Modeling for Zoonotic Epidemics
• Educational Approaches for Integrating Bioinformatics into Computer and Life Science
• Advances in Kepler Scientific Workflow System and Its Applications
• Data Mining in Earth System Science
• Biomedical and Bioinformatics Challenges to Computer Science
• Advances in High-Performance Computational Earth Sciences: Applications and Frameworks
• Urgent Computing
• Atmospheric and Oceanic Computational Science
• Advances in Computational Social Science
The ICCS 2012 meeting will attract nearly 250 delegates from more than 24 countries from around the world. More information about the conference, track descriptions and registration information can be found at http://www.iccs-meeting.org. Both academic and corporate participants are invited to register and attend the conference.
The International Conference on Computational Science aims to annually bring together researchers and scientists, from various application areas, who are pioneering advanced application of computational methods. These researchers and scientists regularly come from the sciences, such as physics, chemistry, life sciences and engineering, as well arts and humanitarian fields. Also in regular attendance are software developers and vendors, who, along with scientists and researchers, can discuss problems and solutions; identify new issues; and shape future directions for research, as well as to help industrial users apply various advanced computational techniques. ICCS 2012 in Omaha will be the 12th in this series of highly successful conferences. Since its inception in 2001, ICCS has attracted increasingly higher quality and numbers of attendees and papers. ICCS is an ERA 2010 A-ranked conference series and its proceedings are published by Elsevier in their new Procedia Computer Science series.
