Computing in Science & Engineering Physics, medicine, astronomy — these and other hard sciences share a common need for efficient algorithms, system software, and computer architecture to address large computational problems. And yet, useful advances in computational techniques that could benefit many researchers are rarely shared. To meet that need, Computing in Science & Engineering (CiSE) presents scientific and computational contributions in a clear and accessible format.

  • The LinkSCEEM FP7 Infrastructure Project: Linking Scientific Computing in Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean
    on May 22, 2018 at 9:44 pm

    Linking Scientific Computing in Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean (LinkSCEEM) was an FP7 infrastructure project that established a high-performance computing ecosystem in the Eastern Mediterranean region by interlinking and coordinating regional compute resources to form an integrated e-Infrastructure. The overarching objective of LinkSCEEM was to enable scientific research in the region by engaging and supporting research communities, with an initial emphasis in the fields of climate research, digital cultural heritage, and synchrotron radiation applications.

  • Making Supercomputing Available to All Cuban Researchers
    on May 22, 2018 at 9:44 pm

    Scientists in Cuba must get up to date with the latest trends and best practices in scientific computing. As a consequence of the socioeconomic and geopolitical situation in and around Cuba, a lack of financial means restricts Cuban researchers access to the supercomputing infrastructures, techniques, and tools that are urgently needed to support the increasing use of computational tools and efficient data processing in different areas, especially those related to public health. […]

  • Computational Science in Developing Countries
    on May 22, 2018 at 9:44 pm

    This special CiSE issue offers comments and thoughts about computational science in developing countries. Several successful national and international initiatives concerning high-performance computing education and training are described. In addition to countries officially classified as developing, programs for underprivileged minorities in mostly developed countries are also mentioned. […]

  • The Growth of High-Performance Computing in Africa
    on May 22, 2018 at 9:44 pm

    Much of Africa has limited experimental research facilities in many areas of fundamental and applied sciences. There are, however, cases where government support has made a difference in providing both infrastructure and funding to researchers as well as graduate students to carry out experimental work. This article describes continent-wide initiatives to grow computational sciences and high-performance computing work. These programs are expected to produce African researchers and scholars who will drive the materials science research agenda, thereby directly influencing their own economies. […]

  • Doing Research under Extreme Conditions
    on May 22, 2018 at 9:44 pm

    Despite drastic cuts to university and research institute budgets, research activities by Iranian scientists have continued. This article presents work being performed by the Complex System Group at the University of Zanjan. Most of the computational works are carried out on multicore processors or parallelized manually on different PCs. […]
