Computational Science, an emerging and increasingly vital field, is now widely recognized as an integral part of scientific and technical investigations, affecting researchers and practitioners in areas ranging from aerospace and automotive to biochemistry, electronics, geoscience, mathematics, and physics. Computer systems research and the exploitation of systems research results naturally complement each other.
The sheer size of many challenges in computational science demands the use of supercomputing, parallel processing, sophisticated algorithms and advanced system software and architecture. It is therefore invaluable to have input by systems research experts in applied computational science research.


This Transactions is in the realm of computational science in parallel and distributed environments, also encompassing the underlying theoretical foundations and the applications of large-scale computation.
The Transactions on Computational Science offers practitioners and researchers the possibility to share computational techniques and solutions in this area, to identify new issues, and to shape future directions for research, as well as to enable industrial users to apply leading-edge large-scale high-performance computational methods.
In addition to addressing the research and application issues, the Transactions aims to present material that is validated -- crucial to the application and advancement of the material presented in both research laboratories and industry. In this spirit, the Transactions focuses on publications that present results and computational techniques that are verifiable. Authors will receive criticism by experts, including researchers and practitioners.

Manuscripts for regular and special issues should be submitted electronically.
Proposals for Special Issues should be sent directly to Editor-in-Chief Prof. Marina Gavrilova and contain subject area, objective, scope, motivation, list of international reviewers and detailed timelines.
Special Issues following established internationally recognized events are accepted for consideration under following conditions: between 1% to 20% of highest-ranked full papers can be invited to SI (minimum issues size is 14 papers of 12 to 20 pages in length), at least 50% new material must be included in submission, each submission must undergo additional refereeing process. Final decision on acceptance of SI will be communicated after successful event takes place.
For Thematic Special issue, once topic of SI is negotiated with prospective Guest Editor, Guest Editor is approved to proceed with advertisement, CFP and paper collection. Final decision on whether SI will be published as part of TCS Journal will be made by Editors-in-Chief subject to submission deadlines being met, sufficient number of articles received, refereeing process being transparent, and final selected article’s quality and scope meeting TCS standards.
If you are submitting an extended version of a previously published conference paper, please obtain the permission of the original publisher to do so and kindly provide full details of the improvements and changes made, in your correspondence with the Editor-in-Chief. The original conference proceedings paper must be properly cited in the reference section of your paper.
If you are submitting an extended version of a previously published conference paper, please make sure there are significant improvements/changes made to the original paper and kindly provide full details of these improvements and changes along with your submission in your correspondence with the Editor-in-Chief or Guest Editor handling the Special Issue. The original conference proceedings paper must be properly cited in the reference section of your paper and the statement "A preliminary version of this work has been reported [citation]" included in the introduction.
