CLOSED: Computational Science in Developing Countries – Call for Papers


Submission deadline: CLOSED
Publication: May/June 2018

Guest editors: Joan Adler (Technion-IIT, Haifa, Israel) and Esteban Mocskos (Universidad de Buenos Aires and CSC-CONICET, Argentina)

Much attention is given to computational science advances coming from renowned universities and government-funded projects in western countries like the United States. But many advances in HPC, visualization, and scientific computing algorithms are also coming from developing countries.

This special issue of Computing in Science & Engineering examines the state of computational science in developing countries. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • education
  • computing infrastructure
  • network infrastructure
  • application development

The special issue will include four feature articles, each one describing a large network project in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, or Asia. Additionally, we will publish several shorter articles covering various aspects of computational science in developing countries.

Please refer to the International Statistical Institute’s list of developing countries at

Submissions Guidelines

We encourage authors to email the guest editors at to ask whether their topic is suited for the special issue. The feature article topics must be pre-approved. Submissions for the shorter articles should include the researcher’s photo and CV.

Please see the CiSE-specific author guidelines and the general author guidelines. Please submit electronically through ScholarOne Manuscripts, selecting this special-issue option.
