The Fifth International Conference on Computational Science and Technology 2018 (ICCST2018) is an international scientific conference for research in the field of advanced computational science and technology, to be held during 29-30 August 2018, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia.

Computational Science and Technology is a rapidly growing multi- and interdisciplinary field that uses advanced computing and data analysis to understand and solve complex problems. The absolute size of many challenges in computational science and technology demands the use of supercomputing, parallel processing, sophisticated algorithms and advanced system software and architecture.

With the recent developments in open-standard hardware and software, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR), automation, humanized big data, machine learning, internet of everything (IoT) and smart home technology, webscale information technology, mobility and physical-digital integrations, new and efficient solutions are required in Computational Science and Technology in order to fulfilled the demands from these developments.

The conference is hosted by the Knowledge Technology Research Unit (KTRU), Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS). Building on the previous FOUR conferences that include Regional Conference on Computational Science and Technology (RCSST 2007), the three International Conference on Computational Science and Technology (ICCST2014, ICCST2016 and ICCST2017), the Fifth International Conference on Computational Science and Technology 2018 (ICCST2018) offers practitioners and researchers from academia and industry 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.
