The 21st International Conference on Computational Science and its Applications

Participation and Presentation Certificates

Participation and Presentation certificates are available on your Home Page at for all participants who are up to date with their registration fee payments.

There are payments by bank transfer which do not show any information and therefore could not be attributed to anyone. If you are in this situation, please send us a copy of the receipt or the date of the transaction.

Participants who have paid by credit card and have received an OK page and are found to be in default should check their credit card account. They will see that the amount has not been charged because the transaction was not accepted for various reasons. They can try again with another card or make a bank transfer following the instructions available at

If you have a credit card payment on your account, please inform us.

Dear ICCSA 2021 participants,

We’re organising this year’s ICCSA conference in a “blended” form, with both in-presence and online participants.

Breaking the last year's record, we have received 532 papers accepted for the presentation at the conference between the general tracks and the workshops, and are expecting around 60-70 in-presence participants, with the rest joining us online.

With this post, we want to give some preliminary guidelines and instructions for you to be able to participate. Read on...

About ICCSA 2021

The 21st International Conference on Computational Science and Applications (ICCSA 2021) will be held on Sept 13 - 16, 2021 in collaboration with the University of Cagliari, Italy, hopefully in Blended form (some present, the remaining on-line), depending on Covid-19 pandemic evolution.

ICCSA 2021 will be the next event in a series of highly successful International Conferences on Computational Science and Its Applications (ICCSA), previously held Online (2020), in Saint Petersburg, Russia (2019), Melbourne, Australia (2018), Trieste, Italy (2017), Beijing. China (2016), Banff, Canada (2015), Guimaraes, Portugal (2014), Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (2013), Salvador de Bahia, Brazil (2012), Santander, Spain (2011), Fukuoka, Japan (2010), Suwon, Korea (2009), Perugia, Italy (2008), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2007), Glasgow, UK (2006), Singapore (2005), Assisi, Italy (2004), Montreal, Canada (2003), and (as ICCS) in Amsterdam, The Netherlands  (2002) and San Francisco, USA (2001). The first ICCSA conference was co-organized by C.J.K. Tan (UK) and M. Gavrilova (U of Calgary, Canada) in 2003.  

Computational Science is a main pillar of most of the present research, industrial and commercial activities and plays a unique role in exploiting Information and Communication Technologies as innovative technologies.

The ICCSA Conference offers a real opportunity to discuss new issues, tackle complex problems and find advanced enabling solutions able to shape new trends in Computational Science.

Submitted papers will be subject to stringent peer review by at least three experts and carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition.

All accepted papers will be included in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series and indexed by Scopus, EI Engineering Index, Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (included in ISI Web of Science), and several other indexing services. The papers will contain linked references, XML versions and citable DOI numbers.

Warning: Fake ICCSA Conference by WASET  
We have noticed the existence of organisations such as WASET that run fake “conferences” in order to make profit with the registration fees, often spoofing the names of real conferences. WASET claims to be organising a conference called ICCSA next year, which is a FAKE ICCSA conference.  
The Real ICCSA conference has been organised by the ICCSA Society since 2003. We do not have any involvement with WASET. Please spread this news to your contacts and communities so that nobody mistakenly participates to such fake conferences.  
WASET is predator publisher. Go to this Wiki Link:,_Engineering_and_Technology 

The conference is organized in cooperation with:
