Computational Frameworks: Systems, Models and Applications provides an overview of advanced perspectives that bridges the gap between frontline research and practical efforts. It is unique in showing the interdisciplinary nature of this area and the way in which it interacts with emerging technologies and techniques. As computational systems are a dominating part of daily lives and a required support for most of the engineering sciences, this book explores their usage (e.g. big data, high performance clusters, databases and information systems, integrated and embedded hardware/software components, smart devices, mobile and pervasive networks, cyber physical systems, etc.).

Key Features

  • Provides a unique presentation on the views of frontline researchers on computational systems theory and applications in one holistic scope
  • Cover both computational science and engineering
  • Bridges the gap between frontline research and practical efforts


University professors with background in computational science and engineering-related disciples and multi-disciplinary fields such as industrial engineering, computer engineering, systems engineering, management science, and computer science. Graduate and postgraduate students, researchers and public /private research departments in computational science and engineering disciplines
