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 ecosystems.

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.

Specific topics include (but are not limited to): 

  • Modelling of multiscale systems
  • Novel approaches to combine different models and scales in one problem solution, scale bridging methods
  • Challenging applications in science and society or in business
  • Advanced numerical methods for solving multiscale problems
  • Verification and validation of multiscale models, including error analysis
  • Environments and frameworks for simulation of multiscale systems
  • Executing multiscale models on advanced computational infrastructures (distributed, HPC, cloud, etc.)

We cordially invite you to submit a paper presenting the results of original research or innovative practical application in the area of modeling and simulation of multiphysics and multiscale systems.

Papers of up to 10 pages, written in English and complying with the Procedia format, should be submitted electronically through the ICCS-Easychair submission system (see Call for Papers and Frequently Asked Questions). Templates are available for download in the Easychair menu bar.

When submitting please don't forget to select the workshop: Multiscale Modelling and Simulation.
Procedia Computer Science

All papers will be peer reviewed. Accepted papers will be published by Elsevier in the open-access Procedia Computer Science series and indexed by Scopus, ScienceDirect, Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation (former ISI Proceedings), an integrated index within Web of Science. The papers will contain linked references, XML versions and citable DOI numbers. The proceedings will be available at the conference.

At least one author of an accepted paper must register at the conference site and present the paper at the workshop.

A selected number of (extended) papers will be invited to the special issue of the Journal of Computational Science.
