2012 Conference on Computational Physics (CCP2012), Kobe (Japan)

More info:  external link

Location:  Kobe, Japan

We are pleased to announce that this year the Conference on Computational Physics will be held in Kobe (Japan), next to the K computer (presently ranked first of the TOP500).

The conference will also celebrate the opening of the K computer for shared use, starting from November 2012.

Purpose and concept of the CCP2012

The Conference on Computational Physics (CCP) is organized annually under the auspices of the Commission 20 of the IUPAP (International Union of Pure and Applied Physics).

We propose to organize the Japanese CCP meeting a little differently from the previous ones. Our goal is to encourage strong communication among different fields and to foster new collaborations between fundamental research and applications, through the commonality of numerical methods.

In particular, we will sort most of the parallel sessions on the basis of numerical methods, namely there will be a session on finite-difference methods, one on particle-dynamics methods, one on Monte Carlo methods, and so on, with contributions from different fields of physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, and related academic fields and industrial applications. More details will appear soon on the webpage:


Registration and abstract submission will open on May 1st.

Registration fees:

30000 yen (20000 yen for students) if paid before September 10, 2012.
35000 yen (25000 yen for students) if paid after September 10, 2012
