Main purpose: This 24th edition of the CCP tries for the first time to put together in the same conference researchers interested in various fields of computational science, with focus on pure and applied Physics, but also on Chemistry, Biology, Engineering, Climate, Weather, and Earth Science and so on. While single-field specialized international conferences abound, CCP2012 aims at stimulating interdisciplinary collaboration on frontier computational science (Physics etc.).
Furthermore, it is the first time that the CCP is organized in Japan and this is done on the occasion of the opening of the K-computer (presently ranked first of the TOP500) for shared use (September 2012).

Distinctive features:
1) Broad range of topics
2) 11 plenary talks with comprehensive reviews of different subjects
3) Half of the parallel session organized on the basis of numerical methods and the other half about special topics deemed of particular importance
4) The sessions based on numerical methods are meant to be meeting points of numerical specialists coming from different research fields, with the goal of expanding one’s horizons and to start new interactions
5) The above is thought to be especially useful for students
6) Speakers are invited to present: i) a comprehensive overview of the past, present, and future of their research field, ii) the reasons why the selected numerical methods are useful or necessary for their computation, iii) the tricks of the trade (the best strategies to obtain numerical solutions in the specific research), and iv) future prospects.

The CCP2012 is organized by:
IUPAP
Osaka University
Kyoto University
Kobe University
University of Hyogo
The Japan Physical Society (JPS)
The Japan Society of Applied Physics (JSAP)

The conference is also endorsed by:
The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science & Technology in Japan (MEXT)
The Advanced Institute for Computational Science (AICS)
Association of Asia-Pacific Physical Societies (AAPPS)
European Physical Society (EPS)
American Physical Society (APS)

The Kobe Shimbun (The Newspaper Co LTD)

The conference is supported by:
The Institute of Laser Engineering (ILE), Osaka University
The Research Center for Nuclear Physics (RCNP), Osaka University
The Earth Simulator Center (JAMSTEC)
Chinese Physical Society (CSP)

2012 Conference on Computational Physics (CCP2012), 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
