The CCP Conference is a yearly conference organized by IUPAP Commission on Computational Physics (C20) and dedicated to presenting an overview of computational physics as it evolves and expands. Every three years it is taking place in Europe with support of European Physical Society. The conference will cover computational physics through a series of plenary talks, which together will form a broad and accessible overview of the field. Parallel sessions with invited and contributed talks as well as poster sessions will be formulated around the topics listed here and will be paying special attention to both numerical methods and physical results.
