SIAM Workshop on Combinatorial Scientific Computing 2016 (CSC16)
Albuquerque, NM, USA
October 10-12, 2016

Second Call for Papers

With the continuing advances in high-performance computing, the role of 
computational science and engineering (CSE) has extensively grown in 
importance over the last decades. At the same time scientific 
simulations continue to face a number of challenges and generate massive 
amounts of data. Many of the underlying problems here are combinatorial 
in nature and unified by a common set of abstractions, data structures, 
and algorithms, often based on graphs and hypergraphs. On a related 
front, data science and analytics have emerged as powerful methods of 
inquiry across a broad range of domains and pose various fundamental 
challenges associated with size and complexity of data that would 
greatly benefit from combinatorial methods. CSC16 provides a forum for 
researchers interested in the interaction of combinatorial mathematics 
and algorithms with CSE and/or data science.

CSC16 follows six successful CSC workshops held roughly biennially since 
2004. A new feature of CSC16 is that there will be a peer-reviewed 
proceedings associated with the workshop. The proceedings will be 
published by SIAM and hosted at its platform The papers will be made permanently 
available with DOI links. SIAM proceedings are indexed by major 
scientific bibliography databases.

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that present original 
unpublished research in all areas of combinatorial scientific computing. 
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to,
* Combinatorial (discrete) models in scientific computing
* Graph and hypergraph algorithms in scientific computing
* Sparse matrix computations
* Combinatorial problems in data science and network science
* Combinatorial problems in Algorithmic Differentiation
* Combinatorial problems in optimization
* Applications of combinatorial scientific computing

Types of Submissions

We invite two types of submissions:

1. Full Papers. Papers should not exceed ten (10) pages using 
double-column format and 11 pt font size. The ten pages limit includes 
references, abstract and figures (if there are any). The SIAM macro to 
be used for paper preparation is available at Accepted papers will be 
included in the proceedings, which will be published electronically by 
SIAM at its proceedings platform. Accepted papers will be presented at 
the workshop as talks.

2. Extended Abstracts. Abstracts should not exceed 2 pages using 
double-column format and 11 pt font size. Accepted abstracts will be 
presented as talks at the workshop, but will not be published in the 

Best Paper Award: There will be a Best Paper Award for one paper 
selected among submissions in the Full Papers category.
