The 11th International Conference on Computational Science and Its Applications

Call for Papers, Short papers, PHD showcase Papers, and Posters for:
The 11th International Conference on Computational Science and Its Applications
- ICCSA 2011 -

University of Cantabria, Santander (Spain)

June 20-23, 2011

The 11th International Conference on Computational Science and Its Applications (ICCSA 2011) will be held on June 20-23, 2011, at the University of Cantabria, Santander (Spain).

ICCSA 2011 is the next event in the series of highly successful International Conferences on Computational Science and Its Applications, previously held in Fukuoka, Japan (2010), Suwon, Korea (2009), Perugia, Italy (2008), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2007), Glasgow, United Kingdom (2006), Singapore (2005), Assisi, Italy (2004), Montreal, Canada (2003), and, as ICCS, in Amsterdam, The Netherlands (2002) and San Francisco (2001).

Computational Science is a main pillar of most of the present research, industrial and commercial activities and plays a unique role in exploiting ICT innovative technologies.
The ICCSA Conference offers a real opportunity to bring together scientists of different disciplines, discuss new issues, tackle complex problems and find advanced solutions breeding new trends in Computational Science.
The proceedings of the conference will be published by Springer-Verlag in Lecture Notes for Computer Science and Conference Publishing System (CPS). The authors of a selected number of top quality papers will be requested to extend their paper in order to be published as special issues in highly recognized international journals.

ICCSA 2011 has paper submission in different categories: main conference theme papers, workshop/special session papers, and poster session papers. The submission details for each paper category can be found at the URL and the list of sessions at the URL:

Paper submission guidelines

To submit a paper, please connect to the Submission site from the link available at the ICCSA 2011 web site:
Only papers submitted through the electronic system and strictly adhering to the relevant format will be considered for reviewing and publication.
The submission may fall into the following five categories: Main Conference Theme Papers,Special Session/Workshop Paper, Short Papers, PHD Showcase Papers and Poster Paper.

The submitted paper must be camera-ready, between 10 and 16 pages long and formatted according to the LNCS rules. Please consult the URL for formatting information and templates.

The submitted paper must be between 10 to 16 pages long for LNCS publication, or 6 to 11 pages forCPS publication, and should be formatted according to the LNCS or CPS rules, respectively.
Please consult the URL for formatting information and templates.

Reporting preliminary results of ongoing research. The submitted paper must be between 4 to 5 pages long formatted according to CPS rules. The Short Papers will be presented during the conference and will be published by CPS.

Reporting ongoing research already achieving significant results and primarily carried out by Ph.D. students and junior researchers. The submitted paper must be between 5 to 8 pages long formatted according toCPS rules. The PHD Showcase Papers will be presented during the conference and will be published byCPS.

Reporting preliminary results of ongoing research. The submitted paper must be between 3 to 4 pages long formatted according to CPS rules. The Poster Papers will be presented as posters during the conference and will be published by CPS.

The paper must deal with original and unpublished work, not submitted for publication elsewhere (copyright problems fall entirely under responsibility of the authors). Each paper will be reviewed by at least three experts in the relevant field (acceptance rate was 28% in 2005, 26% in 2006 and 28% in 2007, 29% in 2008, 30% in 2009, 29% in 2010) ensuring the publication of only top quality contributions.

When a paper is accepted at least one of the authors has to register to the conference and deliver the related talk. Failure to do so shall lead to rejection of the application to attend next year conference and the exclusion of the paper for the current year proceedings.
