As a part of the 11th International Conference on ¿Computational and Mathematical Methods in Science and Engineering¿ (CMMSE 2011), the Minisymposium ¿High Performance Computing (HPC) applied to Computational Problems in Science and Engineering¿ took place in Benidorm on 26 and 27 of June. It brought together over 100 researchers associated within the field of HPC, who participated in the various oral and poster sessions. In last years, the number of scientific contributions and research projects related to the HPC based on the use of parallel computers (multicore processors, Graphics Processing Units¿GPU¿or clusters of computers) has significantly increased. This phenomenon has occurred in almost all engineering fields that require intensive computing.
