SPECIAL ISSUE ON PARALLEL COMPUTING IN MODELLING AND SIMULATION
(Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing)

SCOPE and OBJECTIVES

Model development for the simulation of the evolution of artificial and natural systems is essential for the advancement of Science. Recently, the increasing power of computers has allowed to considerably extend the application of parallel computing methodologies in research and industry, but also to the quantitative study of complex phenomena. This has permitted a broad application of numerical methods for differential equation systems (e.g., FEM, FDM, etc.) on one hand, and the application of alternative computational paradigms, such as Cellular Automata, Genetic Algorithms, Neural networks, Swarm Intelligence, etc., on the other. These latter have demonstrated their effectiveness for modelling purposes when traditional simulation methodologies have proven to be impracticable.

This Special issue aims to provide a platform for a multidisciplinary community composed of scholars, researchers, developers, educators, practitioners and experts from world leading Universities, Institutions, Agencies and Companies in Computational Science, and thus in the Parallel Computing for Modelling and Simulation field. The intent is to offer an opportunity to express and confront views on trends, challenges, and state-of-the art in diverse application fields, such as engineering, physics, chemistry, biology, geology, medicine, ecology, sociology, traffic control, economy, etc.

TOPICS of INTEREST

Tentative authors are invited to submit original unpublished works on topics from a wide range of parallel computing methods, including but not limited to the following:

* Parallel algorithms for modelling and simulation
* High-performance computing in computational science: intra-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary research applications
* Complex systems modelling and simulation
* Cellular Automata, Genetic Algorithms, Neural networks, Swarm Intelligence implementations
* Integrated approach to optimization and simulation
* MPI, OpenMP, GPGPU applications in Computational Science
* Optimization algorithms, modelling techniques related to optimization in Computational Science
* Software developed to solve science (e.g.,biological, physical, and social), engineering, medicine, and humanities problems
* Hardware approaches of parallel computing in modelling and simulation
