The Sixth International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS 2006) was held in Reading, United Kingdom, May 28-31 and continued the traditions of previous conferences in the series: ICCS 2005 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA; ICCS 2004 in Krakow, Poland; ICCS 2003 held simultaneously at two locations in, Melbourne, Australia and St. Petersburg, Russia; ICCS 2002 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands; and ICCS 2001 in San Francisco, California, USA. Since the ?rst conference in San Francisco, rapid developments in Com- tational Science as a mainstream area facilitating multi-disciplinary research essentialfor the advancement of science havebeen observed. The theme of ICCS 2006 was “Advancing Science through Computation”, marking several decades of progress in Computational Science theory and practice, leading to greatly improved applications science. The conference focused on the following major themes:tacklingGrandChallengesProblems;modelling andsimulationsofc- plexsystems;scalablealgorithmsandtoolsandenvironmentsforComputational Science. Of particular interest were the following major recent developments in novel methods and modelling of complex systems for diverse areas of science, scalable scienti?c algorithms, advanced software tools, computational grids, - vanced numerical methods, and novel application areas where the above novel models, algorithms and tools can be e?ciently applied such as physical s- tems, computational and systems biology, environmental systems, ?nance, and others.
