Scope & Topic

Computational science is concerned with constructing mathematical models and quantitative analysis techniques and using computers to analyze and solve scientific problems. In practical use, it is typically the application of computer simulation and other forms of computation from numerical analysis and theoretical computer science to problems in various scientific disciplines. The scientific computing approach is to gain understanding, mainly through the analysis of mathematical models implemented on computers. Scientists and engineers develop computer programs, application software, that model systems being studied and run these programs with various sets of input parameters. Modeling and simulation tools find increasing applications not only in fundamental research, but also in real-world design and industry applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Modeling, Algorithms and Simulations
  • Problem Solving
  • Scientific Computing
  • Computational Sciences (Biology, Chemistry, mathematics, physics, forensics, etc.)
  • High Performance Computing
  • Machine Learning
