Due to the fast development of information technology, the understanding of phenomena in natural, engineer, economy and social sciences increasingly relies on computer simulations. Simulation-based analysis and engineering techniques are traditionally a research focus of Clausthal University of Technology and University of Göttingen, which is especially reflected in their common interdisciplinary research cluster “Simulation Science Center Clausthal-Göttingen”. In this context, the first “Clausthal-Göttingen International Workshop on Simulation Science” aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from both industry and academia to report on the latest advances in simulation science.
The workshop considers the broad area of modeling & simulation with a focus on
- Simulation and optimization in networks:
Public & transportation networks, computer & sensor networks, queuing networks, Internet of Things (IoT) environments, simulation of uncertain optimization problems, simulation of complex stochastic systems
- Simulation of materials:
Development and applications of computational techniques in material and process simulation, simulation at micro (atomistic), meso and macro (continuum) scales including scale bridging, diffusive, convective transport and chemical processes in materials, simulation of granular matter
- Distributed simulations:
Technology enabler for distributed simulation (e.g., simulation support for vector and parallel computing architectures, grid-based systems and cloud-based systems), methods for distributed simulation (e.g., agent-based simulation, multi-level simulation, and simulation for big data analytics, fusion and mining), application examples (e.g., simulation-based quality assurance and high-energy physics)
