ESCO 2014

4th European Seminar on Computing

Pilsen, Czech Republic, June 15 - 20, 2014

ESCO 2014 has finished, thank you for participating!

Proceedings will appear as a special issue of Applied Mathematics and Computation (AMC), a top quality international journal with impact factor 1.6. The deadline for paper submission is the end of September 2014. Recommended maximum length of all papers is 18–20 pages. All papers must be submitted online. Select ESCO 2014 as article type. Formatting style of the journal must be followed exactly. Please do not send your papers to organizers, we cannot submit your paper on your behalf. Please make sure to recommend three reliable referees - the length of your review process will depend largely on them. The referees may not be from the same institution where you work. Also they may not be your past or current collaborators, advisors, or co-authors. Every paper will be subject to a standard review process.

The organizing team lead by Dr. Solin wishes you the best of luck in your next scientific endeavors, and we are looking forward to seeing you perhaps in two years again!

Preliminary program has been posted (PDF).

Book of abstracts can be found here.

The Spilka Restaurant will serve 100 CZK lunches to ESCO 2014 participants (badge required).

ESCO 2014 is the 4th event in a successful series of interdisciplineary international conferences. It promotes modern technologies and practices in scientific computing and visualization, and strengthens the interaction between researchers and practitioners in various areas of computational engineering and sciences.

2014 main themes

Main conference tracks include, but are not restricted to:

- Computational electromagnetics and coupled problems,
- Fluid-structure interaction and multi-phase flows,
- Computational chemistry and quantum physics,
- Computational civil and structural engineering,
- Computational biology and bioinformatics,
- Computational geometry and topology,
- Hydrology and porous media flows,
- Wave propagation and acoustics,
- Climate and weather modeling,
- GPU and cloud computing,
- Uncertainty quantification,
- Open source software.

Tato akce je realizována v rámci projektu EXLIZ – CZ.1.07/2.3.00/30.0013, který JE SPOLUFINANCOVÁN EVROPSKÝM SOCIÁLNÍM FONDEM A STÁTNÍM ROZPOČTEM ČESKÉ REPUBLIKY.


Minisymposia proposals are welcome. A minisymposium should consist of at least four lectures related to the same topic. If you are interested in organizing a minisymposium, please send a title, short abstract, and list of speakers to esco2014(at)femhub(dot)com. List of minisymposia.


Best Poster will be awarded with a diploma and a prize during a ceremony to take place on Thursday, June 19. All student presentations and all posters are automatically nominated. The selection will be done by a vote of all participants.

Software afternoon

Important part of each ESCO conference is a software afternoon featuring computational software projects of participants. Presented can be any computational software that has reached certain level of maturity, i.e., it is used outside of the author's institution, and it has a web page and a user documentation. If you are interested in presenting your software in the Software Afternoon, please let us know at esco2014(at)femhub(dot)com. List of software workshops.


Proceedings of ESCO 2014 will appear as a special issue of Appl. Math. Comput. (impact factor 1.349). The submissions will have the format of a standard journal paper and they will be refereed in a standard way.
