Computational models are mathematical models that are simulated using computation to study complex systems. Computational modeling uses fundamental scientific laws and computer methods to study, predict and simulate material, engineering, physical, chemical and biomedical processes. Computer simulations are, therefore, indispensable in testing hypotheses and assembling information in a quantitative context. Rather than deriving a mathematical analytical solution to the problem, experimentation with the model is done by adjusting the parameters of the system in the computer, and studying the differences in the outcome of the experiments. Computational modeling uses big data and parallel computing infrastructures to solve very large complex systems in engineering, IT, medicine, natural and social science. This special session aims to bring together engineers, IT experts, bioengineers, biochemists, physicists, and chemists in order to explore fresh ideas for new methodologies and application of computational modeling, investigate novel solutions and discuss future trends in this field.
