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.

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.

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

Poster Session

If you want to have more presentations please choose only one of them to be in the oral form, other can be as the poster. Please make sure that you do not exceed the dimensions for the poster.

NOTE: As the conference will be held online, we will require all poster presentations to have slides with a short description of the poster. Please see example of a poster.


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.

From participants

No matter your title or department, if you're a participant you are our top priority.
