Call For Papers

2013 Workshop on Interoperability in Scientific Computing
In conjunction with ICCS 2013 June 5-7 2013, Barcelona, Spain.

The 13th annual International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS 2013)
will be held in Barcelona, Spain from 5th - 7th June 2013. ICCS is an ERA 2010
'A'-ranked conference series. For more details on the main conference, please
visit The 2nd Workshop on Interoperability in Scientific
Computing (WISC '13) will be co-located with ICCS 2013.

Approaches to modelling take many forms. The mathematical, computational and
encapsulated components of models can be diverse in terms of complexity and
scale, as well as in published implementation (mathematics, source code, and
executable files). Many of these systems are attempting to solve real-world
problems in isolation. However the long-term scientific interest is in allowing
greater access to models and their data, and to enable simulations to be combined
in order to address ever more complex issues. Markup languages, metadata
specifications, and ontologies for different scientific domains have emerged as
pathways to greater interoperability. Domain specific modelling languages allow
for a declarative development process to be achieved. Metadata specifications
enable coupling while ontologies allow cross platform integration of data.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers from across scientific
disciplines whose computational models require interoperability. This may arise
through interactions between different domains, systems being modelled, connecting
model repositories, or coupling models themselves, for instance in multi-scale or
hybrid simulations. The outcomes of this workshop will be to better understand the
nature of multidisciplinary computational modelling and data handling. Moreover we
hope to identify common abstractions and cross-cutting themes in future
interoperability research applied to the broader domain of scientific computing.

The first instance of this workshop (WISC '11) was successfully held as part of
the IEEE eScience conference in 2011 in Stockholm, Sweden, where all accepted papers
were published in the workshops proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society and
archived on IEEE eXplore. We look forward to your contributions and participation
in WISC '13.


We invite submissions for high-quality papers (up to 10 pages in length) within
the context of scientific computing in any of the traditional sciences (physics,
chemistry, biology), engineering, or scientific/mathematical modelling applied to
the social sciences and humanities. Papers should address progress, results or
positions in one or more of the following areas:

* Use of metadata standards for annotating scientific models and data.
* Curating and publishing digital models and data to online repositories.
* Meta-modelling and markup languages for model description.
* Theoretical frameworks for combining disparate models, multi-scale models.
* Using standardised data formats in computational models.
* Domain-specific ontologies for the sciences.

Proceedings of the ICCS 2013 workshops will be published by Elsevier Science, and
will be made available online through the open-access Procedia Computer Science.
Selected papers from the conference will be considered for publication in
Elsevier's Journal of Computational Science.


Authors are invited to submit papers with unpublished, original work of not more
than 10 pages, as per the rules of Procedia Computer Science. Selected papers from
the conference will be considered for publication in Elsevier's Journal of
Computational Science.

Papers conforming to the above guidelines should be submitted through the ICCS
online submission system here:

Note, when submitting your paper please be sure to select the correct workshop,
otherwise it will not be directed to the workshop organisers.

It is expected that at least one author of each accepted paper attend the conference
and workshop.
