  • Instructions for the Speakers:

    The total time of one presentation is 20 minutes, including 5 minutes for questions.

    All speakers should submit their presentations to the session chair not later than at the beginning of the coffee/lunch break before the session (on a USB memory stick or CD).

    If you want to use your personal notebook please test the compatibility and resolution issues as soon as possible, but not later than during the coffee break before the session.

    Please let us know if for some reason you can not come and give your talk, or if the presenting person will be different from that listed in the Workshop Program.

Simulation of multiphysics and multiscale systems poses a grand challenge to computational science. Most of the real-life systems, vital for industrial applications and academic research, involve interactions amongst a wide range of physical phenomena. In addition to that, the time and length scales of the individual processes involved often differ by orders of magnitude. Numerical simulation of these multiphysics and multiscale problems requires development of sophisticated models and methods for their integration, as well as efficient numerical algorithms and advanced computational techniques.

This workshop, being a follow-up to the highly successful events held at ICCS-2006 in Reading, UK, ICCS-2005 in Atlanta, USA and ICCS-2004 in Krakow, Poland, aims to bring together computational physicists, numerical specialists and computational scientists to push forward this challenging multidisciplinary research field.


Specific topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Modeling of multiphysics and/or multiscale systems. Of particular interest are: Monte Carlo methods, particle-based methods, mesoscopic models such as cellular-automata, lattice gas and lattice-Boltzmann methods, computational fluid dynamics and computational solid mechanics;
  • Multiphysics and/or multiscale modeling of biological or biomedical systems. This includes computational models of tissue- and organo-genesis, tumor growth, blood vessels formation and interaction with the hosting tissue, biochemical transport and signaling, biomedical simulations for surgical planning, etc.
  • Novel approaches to combine different models and scales in one problem solution;
  • Challenging applications in industry and academia, e.g. time-dependent 3D systems, multiphase flows, fluid-structure interactions, chemical engineering, plasma physics, material science, biophysics, automotive industry, etc.;
  • Advanced numerical methods for solving multiphysics multiscale problems;
  • New algorithms for parallel distributed computing, specific to the field.

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 not exceeding 8 pages, written in English and complying with the LNCS format, should be submitted electronically through the ICCS submission engine. While submitting please don't forget to select the workshop (last field): SIMULATION OF MULTIPHYSICS MULTISCALE SYSTEMS; and send us a note to multiphysics-ws-iccs at


All papers will be peer reviewed. Accepted papers will be published by Springer in the conference proceedings in Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. 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 papers will also be published in the special issue of the International Journal for Multiscale Computational Engineering.
