Previous Conferences

ESCO 2012

European Seminar on Computing
Pilsen, Czech Republic, June 25 - 29, 2012

ESCO 2012 is the 3rd event in a successful series of interdisciplineary meetings dedicated to modern methods and practices of scientific computing.

ESCO 2012 has finished, thank you for participating!

Presentations of invited and contributed speakers can be found here. If your presentation is not on the list, then you can still send it to lukass-dot-koudela-at-gmail-dot-com and we will display it.

Proceedings will appear as a special issue of Computing (a Springer journal). The deadline for paper submission is the end of September 2012. Recommended maximum length of all papers is 18–20 pages. Formatting style of the journal must be followed exactly. All papers must be submitted using the standard journal procedure. Please do not send them to the organizers, we cannot submit your paper on your behalf. Every paper will be subject to a standard review process.

See you, perhaps, in two years again!

Conference Program

Preliminary Conference Program was finalized. It was designed to keep together thematically similar presentations and to minimize topical overlap of parallel talks. Further changes will be made under exceptional circumstances only.

Book of Abstracts

Preliminary Book of Abstracts can be found here. Some changes can still be expected.

2012 themes

Main thematic areas include: Multiphysics coupled problems, Higher-order computational methods, Computing with Python, GPU computing, and Cloud computing.

Application areas

Theoretical results as well as applications are welcome. Application areas include, but are not limited to: Computational electromagnetics, Civil engineering, Nuclear engineering, Mechanical engineering, Nonlinear dynamics, Fluid dynamics, Climate and weather modeling, Computational ecology, Wave propagation, Acoustics, Geophysics, Geomechanics and rock mechanics, Hydrology, Subsurface modeling, Biomechanics, Bioinformatics, Computational chemistry, Stochastic differential equations, Uncertainty quantification, and others.


Minisymposia proposals are welcome. A minisymposium should consist of at least four lectures related to the same topic. Current list of minisymposia can be found here.

Best Poster Award

Best Poster Award will be awarded with a diploma and a prize during a ceremony to take place on Thursday, June 28. All posters are automatically nominated. The selection will be done by a ballot of all participants.

Software afternoon

Important part of each ESCO conference is a software afternoon featuring software projects by 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 would like to present your software project, let us know soon.


For each ESCO we strive to reserve a special issue of an international journal with impact factor. Proceedings of ESCO 2008 appeared in Math. Comput. Simul., proceedings of ESCO 2010 in CiCP and Appl. Math. Comput. Proceedings of ESCO 2012 will appear in Computing, an international journal with impact factor.
