About this conference

The aim of this two-day workshop is to bring together researchers and teachers in Scientific Computing from throughout Sweden. Specifically, it serves as a forum to exchange new results, discuss education, expand research networks and strengthen collaboration. It continues a series of workshops, the last of which was hosted by Lund University in 2018, 2nd Workshop on Scientific Computing in Sweden 2018.

Registration and abstract submission

Registration and abstract submission

The deadline for registration and submission of abstracts is August 13.

Both abstracts related to research and teaching in Scientific Computing are welcome. Here Scientific Computing is used as an umbrella term to encompass topics, including but not limited to, mathematical modeling, algorithmic development/high-performance computing or analysis of numerical approximations to ordinary/partial differential equations.

The abstracts will be evaluated by the members of the scientific committee (see Contact section). In mid-August those selected for oral presentations will be notified. Those not selected will have the opportunity to present their work at the poster session. Each oral presentation will be 25 minutes long with an additional 5 minutes for questions. Of course you are also welcome to attend the workshop without a presentation.
