Seminar on promoting the development of computing science in VAST’s institutes

Scientific computing is a part of computing science to build mathematical models, quantitative analysis and computer usage to solve complication problems in different scientific sectors. Scientific computing has become an integral and useful tool in every field of modern science and technology research. However, the building scientific computing to meet the demand of domestic sciences and units under the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology (VAST) is still an open issue, which has not been developed as demand at present and for the future.
