The Conference

ESCO 2020 is the 7th event in a successful series of interdisciplinary international conferences. It promotes modern technologies and practices in scientific computing and visualization, and strengthens the interaction between researchers and practitioners in various areas of computational engineering, sciences and education.

New ESCO 2022 conference!

2020 COVID-19 update

Due to large-scale travel and in-person meeting restrictions, the organizing committee decided that ESCO 2020 conference will have an online format.

While we will not be able to enjoy the beautiful atmosphere of Pilsen this year, much of the conference will remain the same. Keynote as well as contributed talks will be delivered live online and they will be followed with live discussions. There will be a poster session, software afternoon, and even social meetings after the lectures. This will be a new experience for all of us, and we are looking forward to it.

Taking into account the reduced cost of the new setting, the University of West Bohemia will return 40% of the already paid registration fee to everybody. If you have not paid yet, the new registration fee is 60% of the early rate. If you cancel your participation we will refund your conference fee reduced by the bank fees.

Conference program will take place in the afternoon hours of European time, which means in the morning hours of U.S. time.


Oral Presentations

On Thursday 4th of June there will be a test meeting where all participants may try the Webex service. The meeting will be from 12:00 PM until 8:00 PM (CEST). You can use this Webex link.

  • Oral sessions will be established with technical support and chairmans. The presenter will have 20 minutes for his presentation for the presentation itself + 5 minutes for discussion and answers to questions
  • Each presenter must choose one of the following options:
    • The presentation can be started from your own laptop. The presenter is responsible for the smooth running of their performance.
    • The presentation can be sent until June 7 to the address in PDF format and technical support will ensure its launch. The presenter will be able to control it from his computer with the help of the keyboard and mouse.
  • Queries can be formulated during the presentation in the chat or after the presentation. The course will be driven by a chairman.
  • The presenter must be in the room 10 minutes before the beginning of the session.
  • By connecting to the session, you automatically agree to the recording of the presentation.

Poster Session

  • Each presenter must send their poster in the template by June 7th to the address in PDF format. Poster previews will be available to all participants in advance.
  • Each poster section will be divided into 3 blocks of 30 minutes each. There will be 7 presenters in each block.
  • Each presenter will be in a separate room on Webex. During these 30 minutes, the other participants and the chairman will have the opportunity to join and discuss. The presenter can supplement his poster with other slides or a sample according to his decision.
  • The presenter must be in the room 10 minutes before the beginning of the section.


As the conference will be held online you will present the poster with a short presentation of a few slides.


The conference information and author names with affiliations need to be in the first slide, together with the title of the poster.


Please see an example of the poster.

Software afternoon

Important part of each ESCO conference is a software afternoon featuring computational software projects of participants. Any computational software can be presented that has reached certain level of maturity, i.e., it is used outside of the author's institution, and it has a web page and a user documentation. If you are interested in presenting your software in the Software Afternoon, please let us know at
