Join us in Kotka, Finland for Young Scientists Conference in HPC and Simulation 2017 (YSC2017), November 01-03, 2017

South-Eastern Finland University of Applied Sciences (Xamk), Finland, University of Amsterdam (UvA), the Netherlands and Saint Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics (ITMO University), Russia, announce 2017 International Young Scientists Conference for young researchers and professionals in HPC technologies and computer modeling to take place at the South-Eastern Finland University of Applied Sciences, Kotka, Finland.

***YSC2017 at a glance

The Conference aims to develop the dialogue about the present and the future of Computational Science, research and practical development of the major application aspects of High Performance Computing and Computer modeling and simulation aiming to solve a wide range of problems of science, industry and business.

Simulation and systems thinking is one way to explain the complex world in which we live. By collecting data and creating computer models, scientists can make predictions on critical problems, such as how to influence the flow of traffic, how an epidemic will spread or the probability of individuals in society becoming addicted to drugs. The conference will cover the aspects related to HPC, BigData, large scale simulation of complex systems and offers an ideal range of topics for final year Master’s student or starting PhD students interested in these topics.

YSC-2017 invites original contributions on all topics related to High Performance Computing and Simulation, including, but not limited to:
• Modeling and Simulation of Complex Systems
• Advanced Numerical Algorithms
• Problem Solving Environments
• Web and Grid-based Simulation and Computing
• Parallel and Distributed Computing
• Visualization and Virtual Reality as Applied to Computational Science
• Medical and Biomedical Computational Science
• DSS for City Science and Urban Sustainable Development

Submit your paper now to participate in this international, interdisciplinary and intercultural event.
