Computational science plays an indispensable role in all areas of science and technology today. The dramatic development of supercomputers has greatly expanded the frontiers of large-scale computational research. Efforts to fuse disciplines and create new fields of study through computation are actively underway.
Interdisciplinarity is a major characteristic of computational science. To take full advantage of this, it is important to have regular and frequent opportunities for exchange and cooperation among the various fields of computational science, as well as between the fields of computer science and information science, which support the development of computational science. The former organization of the Center for Computational Sciences at the University of Tsukuba was established in 1992 as a place for collaboration among the various fields of computational science, computer science, and information science as described above. The center was reorganized and expanded in April 2004 with the current name. The center has been accredited by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology as “the Advanced Interdisciplinary Computational Science Collaboration Initiative (AISCI)” and is promoting a Multidisciplinary Cooperative Research Program using the Center’s computational resources.
This symposium will be held at the Epochal Tsukuba International Congress Center to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Center’s establishment. The symposium will be held in a format that allows for either in-person or online. The official language is English. We have prepared interesting talks by our invited researchers who are active at the forefront of their respective fields in computational science. In addition, oral and poster presentations will be given to report the results of the Multidisciplinary Cooperative Research Program organized by the center. In both talks and presentations, cutting-edge research in computational science, which is developing in a variety of scientific fields such as physics, life science, and earth science, will be introduced in a form that is easy to understand for researchers and graduate students from other fields. We hope that the lectures and discussions will provide a good opportunity for active exchange of views on the frontiers of computational science and computer science, as well as on collaboration among these fields.
We look forward to your participation.

– From airports to Tsukuba Center
There are two airports in the Tokyo area: Narita Airport and Haneda Airport. It takes about one hour from either airport to Tsukuba Center by direct bus, but the bus service may be reduced or the schedule may be changed due to COVID-19.
For access to Tsukuba Center by train, please refer to the following page.
