Simulation of Multiphysics Multiscale Systems

Second International Workshop
In conjunction with the International Conference on Computational Science
May 22-25, 2005
Atlanta, USA
Simulation of multiphysics and multiscale (MPMS) systems poses a
grand challenge to computational science. 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 by orders of magnitude. Numerical simulation of these
multiphysics and multiscale problems requires the development of
sophisticated models and methods for their integration, as well as
efficient numerical algorithms and advanced computational techniques.

Because of the heavy computational demands of such simulations, one
needs successful utilization of high-performance computing systems, which
inspires progress in algorithms and methodology of parallel distributed
computing. The complexity of modeling 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 methods.

This workshop, being a follow-up of a highly successful event held at
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;
* Novel approaches to combine different models and scales in one problem
* Large-scale industrial and academical applications (e.g. time-
dependent, 3D systems, multiphase flows, fluid-structure interactions,
chemical engineering, plasma physics, material science, bio-physics,
automotive industry, etc.);
* Advanced numerical methods for solving multiphysics multiscale problems;
* New algorithms for parallel distributed computing, specific to the field;
* Problem solving environments for interactive simulation of MPMS problems;
* Performance analysis of MPMS simulation;
* Special hardware for MPMS simulation (e.g. Field Programmable Gate Arrays)
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 Springer-Verlag format, should
be submitted in pdf file format, electronically to the e-mail address: Please do not upload your workshop
papers to the general ICCS submission engine!

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 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 after the conference.
