Special Issue in Computers: Selected Papers from ICCSA 2020
The 21st International Conference on Computational Science and Applications (ICCSA 2021) will be held on July 5–8, 2021, in collaboration with the University of Cagliari, Italy, hopefully in a blended form (some physical, the remaining online), depending on how the COVID-19 pandemic progresses. 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. For more information, see: http://www.iccsa.org/.
The authors of a number of selected high-quality full papers will be invited after the conference to submit revised and extended versions of their originally accepted conference papers to this Special Issue of Computers, published by MDPI, in open access format. The selection of these best papers will be based on their ratings in the conference review process, the quality of the presentation during the conference, and the expected impact on the research community. Each submission to this Special Issue should contain at least 50% new material, e.g., in the form of technical extensions, more in-depth evaluations, or additional use cases and a change of title, abstract and keywords. These extended submissions will undergo a peer-review process according to the journal’s rules of action. At least two technical committees will act as reviewers for each extended article submitted to this Special Issue; if needed, additional external reviewers will be invited to guarantee a high-quality reviewing process.
