Welcome Message

Computational science is an important and urgent field with multi-disciplinary research. It focuses on algorithms development and implementations of computing for scientists and engineers. Its impact is already being felt in many science and engineering disciplines. Current research in computational science requires multi-disciplinary knowledge, not only in sciences and engineering but also in cutting-edge technologies of computing. Many science and engineering explorations rely on mature, efficient computational algorithms and implementations, practical and reliable numerical methods, and large-scale computation systems. The theme of this workshop focuses on scientific computations and applications on Internet, enhancing cyberinfrastructure-based scientific and engineering collaborations. It provides a great opportunity for non-computer science professionals traveling from different fields to this conference. This workshop offers academic researchers, developers, and practitioners an opportunity to discuss various aspects of computational science and engineering-related computational methods and problem solving techniques for science and engineering research.

This workshop is the second international workshop. It will be conducted in conjunction with International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS 2007). The workshop will be guided by the ICCS’s general conference committee and planned and executed by the workshop program committee independently. We hope to attract people from diverse science and engineering disciplines, nationally and internationally, to attend the workshop, present their research results, share their experiences and ideas, and plan future collaborations.

This workshop serves as a great opportunity for academic researchers developers, and practitioners to discuss various aspects of computational methods and problem solving solutions in sciences and engineering research.

Workshop Topics:

Topics of the workshop must relate to Internet-based, application oriented scientific and engineering computations or simulations. They include (but are not limited to):

Information Systems for computational science and engineering
Data mining and search in applications of computational science and engineering
Internet computing for solving computational problems
Cyberinfrastructure computing in science and engineering
Collaborative computations in science and engineering
Cooperative computing in science and engineering
Internet-based learning (eLearning) in computational science and engineering
Internet based graphic user interface design for scientists and engineers
Embedded scientific computing
Wireless computations in science and engineering
Empowered distributed, parallel, P2P, and Grid computing for scientific computations
