SCA 2018

The 2018 International Workshop on
Scientific Computing and its Applications

Workshop Overview

The 2018 International Workshop on Scientific computing and its Applications (SCA 2018) will be held in Jeju, as one of registered workshops of PlatCon-18, 29-31 January 2018. Recently, since IT technology is rapidly developed and performance of computing and data processing is improved, many problems are solved in various fundamental science parts such as physics, chemistry, biology, meteorology, astronomy, etc. Due to improve performance of computing and data processing, ‘Higgs boson’ could be detected in physics part.
However, in order to solve many natural problems in various fundamental sciences, these inquire more advanced data processing, high-speed network, and high performance computing.
Therefore, many researchers in various fundamental sciences concentrate on increasing performance of IT technology such as computing, middleware, data processing, file system, computer system, network, and so on.
The aim of this workshop is to invite state of the art in research on Scientific Computing and its Applications in fundamental science. The workshop also covers interdisciplinary research and applications related to these areas. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality, significance and quality of contribution.
The SCA 2018 is the next event, in a series of highly successful International Conference on Platform Technology and Service, previously held as SCA 2017 (Busan, Korea, Feb. 2017).
