Peruvian Conference on Scientific Computing :
October 3 - 6, 2022, Cusco, Peru

The objective of this conference is to bring together Peruvian and international researchers working in the area of Scientific Computing, in particular in the fields Modeling, Simulation and Optimization with Differential Equations. A focus will lie on topics that are of particular interest for researchers in South America, such as Subsurface Flows, Mathematical Epidemiology or Climate and Environmental topics. The scientific part will be complemented by an attractive social program.

Location of the Conference

Paraninfo Universitario of the
Universidad Nacional de San Antonio Abad del Cusco, Peru
Plaza de Armas, Cusco

The deadline for registration and for the submission of abstract is August 5th 2022.

ICIAM Fellows to cover travelling costs

The conference thankfully acknowledges the support by ICIAM that allows us to award ICIAM Fellowships to a number of talented participants coming from Latin America.

Depending on the availability of funds, the number of applications and the expected travel costs, we are able to give grants between 200 and 500 USD to support the participation in this event. The fellowship may cover costs for accommodation and transportation (flight, bus, etc) and will be awarded during the conference.

If you would like to be considered for a fellowship, please fill in this form before August 5, 2022 (in English!). Preference will be given to participants who also submit an abstract for a talk or poster.


The scientific program of the conference will start on Monday, October 3, in the morning and run until Wednesday, October 5, in the evening. It consists of invited and contributed talks as well as a poster session. On October 6, we plan an excursion to the Sacred Valley of the Incas, where we visit the ruins of Pidac and Ollantaytambo.
The detailed program and information on the format of the talks and posters is given on Schedule.

Preparatory Spring School on Scientific Computing

In the week ahead of the conference (September 26 - 30), we offer an additional introductory spring school on some basic concepts of numerical methods in scientific computing. This school is a separate event that will also take place in Cusco. Details on the spring school can be found on this website.
