The 17th International Conference on Computational Science and Applications (ICCSA 2017) was held on June 20-23, 2017, at the University of Cantabria, Santander, Spain.

ICCSA 2018 is the next event in a series of highly successful International Conferences on Computational Science and Its Applications (ICCSA), previously held in  Santander,Spain, Fukuoka, Japan , Suwon, Korea, Perugia, Italy , Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia , Glasgow, UK, Singapore, Assisi, Italy, Montreal, Canada , Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and San Francisco, USA (2001).

Computational Science is the main pillar of most of the present research, industrial and commercial activities and plays a unique role in exploiting Information and CommunicationTechnologies as innovative technologies.

The ICCSA Conference offers a real opportunity to discuss new issues, tackle complex problems and find advanced enabling solutions able to shape new trends in computational science.

The 18th IEEE International Conference on Computational Science and Applications (CSE 2018) will be held on August 24-26, 2018, Dalian China 

The Computational Science and Engineering has earned prominence through advances in electronic and integrated technologies beginning in the 1940s. Current times are very exciting and the years to come will witness a proliferation in the use of various advanced computing systems. It is increasingly becoming an emerging and promising discipline in shaping future research and development activities in academia and industry, ranging from engineering, science, finance, economics, arts and humanitarian fields, especially when the solution of large and complex problems must cope with tight timing schedules.

CSE-2018 is the next event, in a series of highly successful International Conferences on Computational Science and Engineering, held mainly at the International Workshop on High Performance Scientific and Engineering Computing for 10 editions, mostly in conjunction with International Conference on Parallel Processing (ICPP), as COATA-98 (Orlando, USA, July 1998), HPSEC-99 (Fukushima, Japan, September 1999), HPSEC-00 (Toronto, Canada, August 2000), HPSEC-01 (Valencia, Spain, September 2001), HPSEC-02 (Vancouver, Canada, August 2002), HPSEC-03 (Kaohsing, Taiwan, October 2003), HPSEC-04 (Montreal, Canada, August 2004), HPCSE-04 with WCC-04 (Toulouse, France, August 2004), HPSEC-05 (Oslo, Norway, June 2005), HPSEC-06 (Columbus, USA, August 2006), and CSE-08 (São Paulo, Brazil, July 2008) The previous CSE-09 and CSE-10 were held in Vancouver, Canada, August 29-31, 2009 and Hong Kong, China, December 11-12, 2010.
