The International Conference on Computational Science is an annual conference that brings together researchers and scientists from mathematics and computer science as basic computing disciplines, researchers from various application areas who are pioneering computational methods in sciences such as physics, chemistry, life sciences, and engineering, as well as in arts and humanitarian fields, to discuss problems and solutions in the area, to identify new issues, and to shape future directions for research.
ICCS 2020 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, will be the twentieth in this series of highly successful conferences.
Since its inception in 2001, ICCS has attracted increasingly higher quality and numbers of attendees and papers. Average attendance each year is about 350 participants. The proceedings series have become a major intellectual resource for computational science researchers and serve to both define and advance the state of the art of the field.
Out of the submitted full papers to the main track and thematic tracks, we will select some 30% high-quality papers for presentation at the conference and publication in the proceedings. These are published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series and indexed by Scopus, EI Engineering Index, Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (included in ISI Web of Science), and several other indexing services. The papers will contain linked references, XML versions and citable DOI numbers.
ICCS is well known for its excellent line up of keynote speakers. Confirmed so far are:
- Albert-László Barabási, Northeastern University, USA
- Lorena Barba, George Washington University, USA
- Paul Davies, Arizona State University, USA
- Peter Hunter, The University of Auckland, New Zealand
- Seth Lloyd, MIT, USA
- Marten Scheffer, SparcS Center, The Netherlands
The theme for ICCS 2020 is “20 Years of Computational Science”. This conference will be a unique event focusing on recent developments in: scalable scientific algorithms; advanced software tools; computational grids; advanced numerical methods; and novel application areas. These innovative novel models, algorithms and tools drive new science through efficient application in areas such as physical systems, computational and systems biology, environmental systems, finance, and others.
ICCS is an A-rank conference in the CORE classification.

Draft paper submission deadline：2019-12-13
Draft paper acceptance notification：2020-01-24
Abstract submission deadline：2019-12-13
Abstract notification of acceptance：2020-01-24
Final paper submission deadline：2020-02-28
Papers of up to 14 pages, written in English and complying with the Springer LNCS format, should be submitted electronically through the EasyChair submission system. Submission will open in the end of October.
You are welcome to participate in one of the thematic tracks or in the Main Track (if your topic does not fit any particular, thematic track but still falls within the scope of the conference). During submission, you may select either a "Full/Short Paper" or a "Abstract Only" publication. By default, it will be an oral presentation. If you prefer to present a poster, please check the "Poster Presentation" option in the submission page.
While we encourage full paper submissions, the "Abstract Only" option caters to researchers who can only publish in specific journals or work for companies in circumstances such that they cannot publish at all, but still want to present their work and discuss it with their peers at ICCS. In the "Abstract Only" option, a short abstract is published in a book of abstracts, but not in LNCS.
Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper.
Papers must be based on unpublished original work and must be submitted to ICCS only.
