The primary objective of CCIS is to provide a single forum to strengthen links between basic and applied research, theoretical and experimental methods involving scientific computing and computational mathematics. Its goal is to bring together people to present high quality contributions on all aspects of interdisciplinary sciences where scientific computing is a key component. Thus, the scope of CCIS covers advanced computational issues related to Mathematics, Physics, Astronomy, Chemistry, Biology and Engineering. Hence, 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 that focus traditionally on the mathematical study of computation, computers and information processing. Scientists and engineers, not necessarily graduated in computer sciences, often need computer skills to develop and run specific computer programs and software for system modeling. 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 context, scientific computing contributes to the understanding of the phenomenon of interest, mainly through the analysis, visualization and modeling implemented on and for computers.

It is expected that most of CCIS's participants have experience with scientific computing in their research area but not necessary have a computer science education. This person is usually a scientist (physicist, biologist, applied mathematician, etc) or an engineer who applies scientific computing in different ways to advance the state-of-the-art in their fundamental disciplines in Physics, Astronomy, 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 between different scientific disciplines that persist even when they have the scientific computing as a common explicit language. The focus of CCIS is on the computational aspects that often are neglected or receive less attention in contrast to the specific content of the scientific area.
