XXVI IUPAP Conference on
Computational Physics, CCP2014

August 11-14, 2014, Boston, Massachusetts, USA

CCP2014 open for registrationsubmission of abstracts  for poster presentations, and reservation of discounted housing at hotels and residence halls close to the venue.

Please note, the deadline for some CCP2014 discounted hotels has been extended to July 24, 2014!

The deadline for abstracts for contributed oral presentations has passed (June 15). Notifications to authors who submitted by the deadline were sent out on July 1. 

Late submissions of poster abstracts will be accepted until July 31.

CCP is a series of conferences held annually under the auspicies of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) on the basis of endorsement by its Commission on Computational Physics (C20). The purpose of the conference series is to bring together computational scientists working in physics and closely related areas to exchange the latest developments in computational techniques and their applications.

CCP2014 will feature plenary, invited, and contributed talks as well as poster presentations in the following topical areas:

  • Classical statistical mechanics and complex systems
  • Soft-matter, polymer, and biological physics
  • Materials science and nano science (e.g., structure, dynamics, electronic structure, multi-scale methods)
  • Fluid dynamics, turbulence, nano-fluidics, magnetohydrodynamics
  • Quantum many-body physics (e.g., lattice models, ground states, quantum-criticality, novel methods)
  • Quantum computation
  • Lattice field theory in particle and nuclear physics
  • Astrophysics,  space-plasma physics, gravitation, cosmology
  • Computational-physics education
  • Novel hardware and software paradigms (e.g., GPU computing, cloud computing, the path to exa-scale computing)

The Proceedings of CCP2014 will be published in Journal of Physics: Conference Series.

Sponsors of CCP2014

To secure IUPAP sponsorship, the organizers have provided assurance that  CCP2014 will be conducted in accordance with IUPAP principles as stated in the ICSU-Document “Universality of Science” (sixth edition, 1989) regarding the free circulation of scientists for international purposes. In particular, no bona fide scientist will be excluded from participation on the grounds of national origin, nationality, or political considerations unrelated to science.
