Scope

The aim of this workshop is to integrate results of different domains of computer science, computational science and mathematics.

We invite papers oriented toward simulations, either hard simulations by means of finite element or finite difference methods, or soft simulations by means of evolutionary computations, particle swarm optimization and other. The workshop is most interested in simulations performed by using agent-oriented systems or by utilizing adaptive algorithms, but simulations performed by other kind of systems are also welcome. Agent-oriented system seems to be the attractive tool useful for numerous domains of applications. Adaptive algorithms allow significant decrease of the computational cost by utilizing computational resources on most important aspect of the problem.

This year following the challenges of ICCS 2017 theme "The Art of Computational Science. Bridging Gaps – Forming Alloys" we invite submissions using techniques dealing with large simulations, e.g. agents based algorithms dealing with big data, model reduction techniques for large problems, fast solvers for large three dimensional simulations, etc.

To give - rather flexible - guidance in the subject, the following, more detailed, topics are suggested.

These of theoretical brand, like:

  • multi-agent systems in high-performance computing,
  • efficient adaptive algorithms for big problems,
  • low computational cost adaptive solvers,
  • agent-oriented approach to adaptive algorithms,
  • model reduction techniques for large problems,
  • mathematical modeling and asymptotic analysis of large problems,
  • finite element or finite difference methods for three dimensional or non-stationary problems,
  • mathematical modeling and asymptotic analysis.

And those with stress on application sphere:

  • agents based algorithms dealing with big data,
  • application of adaptive algorithms in large simulation,
  • simulation and large multi-agent systems,
  • application of adaptive algorithms in three dimensional finite element and finite difference simulations,
  • application of multi-agent systems in computational modeling,
  • multi-agent systems in integration of different approaches.

Language

The official language of the meeting is English.
