June 13, 2017
19:00 - 23:00
The International Conference on Computational Science is an annual conference that brings together researchers and scientists from mathematics and computer science as basic computing disciplines, and researchers from various application areas who are pioneering computational methods in sciences such as physics, chemistry, life sciences, and engineering, as well as in arts and humanitarian fields, to discuss problems and solutions in the area, to identify new issues, and to shape future directions for research.
ICCS 2017 in Zürich, Switzerland, will be the seventeenth in this series of highly successful conferences. Located in central Europe close to the Alps, Zürich is Switzerland’s largest city and one of the world’s main financial hubs. In addition to the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, one of the world’s most distinguished research institutions and the proud host of ICCS 2017, Zürich is home to many parks, museums and churches. The city stretches out on both sides of the Limmat river, which flows out of the beautiful Lake Zürich.
Since its inception in 2001, ICCS has attracted increasingly higher quality and numbers of attendees and papers. Average attendance each year is about 350 participants. The proceedings series have become a major intellectual resource for computational science researchers and serve to both define and advance the state of the art of the field.
The proceedings are published by Elsevier in the open-access Procedia Computer Science series and indexed by Scopus, ScienceDirect, and Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation (former ISI Proceedings) – an integrated index within Web of Science.
The theme for ICCS 2017 is “The Art of Computational Science. Bridging Gaps – Forming Alloys”, to highlight the role of computational science as a broad, multidisciplinary science tackling problems and creating synergies with other fields. This conference will be a unique event focusing on recent developments in: scalable scientific algorithms; advanced software tools; computational grids; advanced numerical methods; and novel application areas. These innovative novel models, algorithms and tools drive new science through efficient application in areas such as physical systems, computational and systems biology, environmental systems, finance, and others.
ICCS is an A-rank conference in CORE classification and one of the most cited events and publications in computational science.
We look forward to welcoming you to this exciting event in Switzerland!

Situated in the heart of Europe, ETH Zürich’s history dates back to 1855.
The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zürich (or “Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich” in German) is one of the most prestiged research institutions in the world, featuring often in the top 10 of several international rankings.
With a funding of 1.7 billion CHF (1.5 billion EUR / 1.7 billion USD), ETH Zürich has over 19000 students and 500 professors.
Since 1996, 330 spin-offs have originated in ETH, and the University reports 90 patent applications and 200 inventions every year.

a) By Tram: From the “Zurich Airport” tram stop, take Tram no. 10 towards Bahnhofplatz/HB and get out at “ETH/Universitätsspital”. The tram runs every 7 to 15 minutes between 6 in the morning and 11 at night.
The journey will take about 30 minutes.
b) By Rail:
Take the S-Bahn train from the “Zurich Airport” station to “Zurich Hauptbanhof (HB)”. The journey will take approximately 10 minutes. Once at Zürich HB, you can then take either Tram #6 from Zürich HB/Bahnhofstrasse or Tram #10 from Zürich HB/Bahnhofplatz to “ETH/Universitätsspital”. The tram ride will take about 6 minutes. Or you can just walk to ETH Zentrum. It’s a pleasant 10-minute, 1000-meter walk.
Check the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) website for timetables and fares.
Zürich is served by an extensive transportation network, and it is easy to get from place to place.
To plan your trip you can use the Zürich Transport Association (ZVV) website.
