Workshop on
Modelling and Simulation of Multi-Physics Multi-Scale Systems

International Conference on Computational Science ICCS 2004
June 7-9, 2004
Krakow, Poland
A great number of real-life systems, important for industrial
applications and academic research, involve interactions amongst a range of
physical phenomena (e.g. viscous, turbulent, thermal, chemical, mechanical,
electromagnetic or plasma processes). In some systems the time and length
scales of processes studied differ in orders of magnitude. Numerical
simulation of these multi-physics and multi-scale problems requires the
development of sophisticated models and methods for their integration, as
well as efficient numerical algorithms and advanced computational techniques
based on appropriate software/hardware technologies.

Because of the heavy computational demands of such simulations one needs
proficient utilization of high-performance parallel distributed systems,
such as efficient recourse management. The complexity of modelling and data
description, the large number and wide range of parameters under
investigation, as well as the necessity to control and steer the simulation
processes, motivate the development of problem solving environments, user
interfaces and code integration schemas.

The workshop aims to bring together computational physicists, numerical
specialists and computational scientists to push forward this challenging
multi-disciplinary research field.
Specific topics may include (but are not limited to):
* Modelling of multi-physics and/or multi-scale 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;
* Novel approaches to combine different models and scales in one problem
* Large-scale industrial and academical applications (e.g. time-dependent,
3D systems, multi-phase flows, fluid-structure interactions, chemical
engineering, plasma physics, material science, bio-physics, automotive
* Advanced numerical methods for solving multi-physics problems;
* Algorithms for parallel and distributed computing;
* Software integration;
* Problem solving environments; user interfaces; interactive software for
modelling multi-physics problems;
* Performance analysis of multi-physics simulation systems
* Special hardware for multi-physics simulation (e.g. Field Programmable
Gate Arrays)
We cordially invite you to submit a paper presenting the results of
original research or innovative practical applications in the area of the
multi-physics and multi-scale system modelling and simulation.

Papers should be of 6 to 10 single-spaced pages (about 3300 words maximum
plus some figures) written in English, and must comply with the
Springer-Verlag format described at

Papers should be submitted in pdf or ps file format, electronically to
the e-mail address: All papers will be peer
reviewed. Accepted papers will be published by Springer-Verlag 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.
