Computational Science and Its Applications - ICCSA 2009

Osvaldo Gervasi, David Taniar, Beniamino Murgante, Antonio Laganà, Youngsong Mun, Marina Gavrilova,


These multiple volumes (LNCS volumes 5592 and 5593) consist of the peer-reviewed papers from the 2009 International Conference on Computational Science and Its Applications (ICCSA 2009) held in Seoul (South Korea) from June 29 to July 2, 2009.
ICCSA 2009 was a successful event in the International Conferences on Computational Science and Its Applications (ICCSA) series, previously held in Perugia, Italy (2008), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2007), Glasgow, UK (2006), Singapore (2005), Assisi, Italy (2004), Montreal, Canada (2003), and (as ICCS) Amsterdam, The Netherlands (2002) and San Francisco, USA (2001).
Computational science is a main pillar of most of the present research and industrial and commercial activities, and it plays a unique role in exploiting ICT innovative technologies. The ICCSA conference series have been providing a venue to researchers and industry practitioners to discuss new ideas, to share complex problems and their solutions, and to shape new trends in computational science.
For the first time this year, ICCSA organized a number of special issues in international journals to publish selected extended best papers from ICCSA 2009, including Journal of Supercomputing (Springer); Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience (Wiley); Transactions on Computational Science (Springer); Mobile Information Systems (IOS Press); Journal of Algorithms in Cognition, Informatics and Logic (Elsevier); International Journal of Virtual Reality;and Journal of Universal Computer Science (JUCS).
Apart from the general track, ICCSA 2009 also included 20 special sessions and workshops, in various areas of computational sciences, ranging from computational science technologies, to specific areas of computational sciences, such as computer graphics and virtual reality. We would like to show our appreciation to the Workshop and Special Session Chairs and Co-chairs.
The success of the ICCSA conference series, in general, and ICCSA 2009 in particular, is due to the support of many people: authors, presenters, participants, keynote speakers, Session Chairs, Organizing Committee members, student volunteers, Program Committee members, Steering Committee members, and many people in other various roles. We would like to thank them all.
We would also like to thank Springer for their continuous support in publishing ICCSA conference proceedings.
