The five-volume set LNCS 3980-3984 constitutes the refereed proceedings of the International Conference on Computational Science and Its Applications, ICCSA 2006, held in Glasgow, UK in May 2006.
The five volumes present a total of 664 papers selected from over 2300 submissions. The papers present a wealth of original research results in the field of computational science, from foundational issues in computer science and mathematics to advanced applications in virtually all sciences making use of computational techniques. The topics of the refereed papers are structured according to the five major conference themes: computational methods, algorithms and applications high performance technical computing and networks advanced and emerging applications geometric modelling, graphics and visualization information systems and information technologies.
Moreover, submissions from 31 Workshops and technical sessions in the areas, such as information security, mobile communication, grid computing, modeling, optimization, computational geometry, virtual reality, symbolic computations, molecular structures, Web systems and intelligence, spatial analysis, bioinformatics and geocomputations, contribute to this publication.
