The Sixth International Conference on Advanced Engineering Computing and Applications in Sciences


September 23-28, 2012 - Barcelona, Spain

Call for Papers

With the advent of high performance computing environments, virtualization, distributed and parallel computing, as well as the increasing memory, storage and computational power, processing particularly complex scientific applications and voluminous data is more affordable. With the current computing software, hardware and distributed platforms effective use of advanced computing techniques is more achievable.

The goal of the International Conference on Advanced Engineering Computing and Applications in Sciences, ADVCOMP 20112 is to bring together researchers from the academia and practitioners from the industry in order to address fundamentals of advanced scientific computing and specific mechanisms and algorithms for particular sciences. The conference will provide a forum where researchers shall be able to present recent research results and new research problems and directions related to them. The conference seeks contributions presenting novel research in all aspects of new scientific methods for computing and hybrid methods for computing optimization, as well as advanced algorithms and computational procedures, software and hardware solutions dealing with specific domains of science.

We solicit both academic, research, and industrial contributions. We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the above topics short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.

Industrial presentations are not subject to the format and content constraints of regular submissions. We expect short and long presentations that express industrial position and status.

Tutorials on specific related topics and panels on challenging areas are encouraged.

The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas.

All topics and submission formats are open to both research and industry contributions.
