The primary objective of CCIS is to provide a single forum for the computational interdisciplinary area to strengthen links between basic and applied research, theoretical and experimental methods relating scientific computing and computational mathematics. Its goal is to bring together, in one meeting, significant researches of high quality on all aspects of interdisciplinary sciences when the scientific computing is one necessary branch. Thus, the scope of CCIS includes mainly advanced computational issues related to mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology and engineering of complex systems in numerical and natural experiments. Then, it is of practical interest to have contributions on the application of computer simulation and other forms of computation to problems in various scientific disciplines. In this sense, CCIS is distinct from pure computer science meetings, understand here as the mathematical study of computation, computers and information processing. Scientists and engineers, not graduate in computer science, having computing skills develop specific computer programs, application software that model systems being studied and run these programs with various sets of input parameters. Usually, these applied models require massive amounts of calculations and are often executed on high-performance computing (supercomputers and distributed platforms as clusters and grids). In this framework, the scientific computing approach is to gain understanding, mainly through the analysis, visualization and modeling implemented on and for computers.

It is expected that most of CCIS's participants are computational scientists, someone skilled in scientific computing. This person is usually a scientist (physicist, biologist, etc), an applied mathematician, or an engineer who applies scientific computing in different ways to advance the state-of-the-art in their fundamental disciplines in physics, chemistry, biology and engineering. They can also be found in more intrinsically multidisciplinary areas where the scientific computing has increasingly impacted as medicine, economics, sociology and linguistic. Therefore, CCIS seeks to bridge the artificial walls among many kinds of scientific disciplines that persist even when they have the scientific computing as a common explicit language. The focus of CCIS is to explicit as much as possible the computational content of the research, usually hidden or neglected due to the weight of specific fundamental areas.
