ISSAC 2006 Call for Papers

** Accepted papers **

ISSAC is the yearly premier international symposium in Symbolic and Algebraic Computation. It provides an opportunity to learn of new developments and to present original research results in all areas of symbolic mathematical computation. Planned activities include invited presentations, research papers, poster sessions, tutorial courses, vendor exhibits and software demonstrations.

ISSAC 2006 will be held from July 9 to 12 in Genoa, Italy, hosted by the University of Genova,

The ISSAC 2006 web site is  .

Instructions to Authors

Original research results and insightful analyses of current concerns are solicited for submission. Submissions must not substantially duplicate work published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Late submissions will be rejected. Papers will be reviewed by a program committee and additional referees. Proceedings will be distributed at the symposium. Papers must be in English and should not exceed 8 pages in the standard format for ACM proceedings, or 20 to 22 pages of text in LaTeX 12pt article style.

Each paper should have an abstract as well as an introductory section that:

Describes the problem. Motivates the study of the problem. States the main results and compares them to other work (including theoretical or empirical performance). Summarizes the original aspects of the contribution. Formatting requirements will be based on the ACM Proceedings Templates. For instance, in LaTeX2e you should use the acm_proc_article-sp.cls document class to Templates see Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their work at the symposium, or make arrangements to have it presented, and will be required to sign the ACM copyright agreement (cf. ). Some papers may be accepted for poster session presentation; these will not appear in the proceedings. Abstracts of all posters will be distributed at the symposium. For poster submissions please consult the Call for Posters.

Distinguished Paper Award

This award will be given to the most distinguished paper(s) presented at ISSAC 2006. The distinguished paper(s) will be decided by the program committee.

Distinguished Student Author Award

This award will be given to the Distinguished student author. An author who is a full-time student at the time of submission is eligible for the award. This status should be indicated when the paper is submitted.

For details concerning the selection procedure for this award as well as the procedure for the ISSAC Distinguished Paper Award, see the ISSAC Award Guidelines.

Conference Topics include, but are not limited to:

-Algorithmic Mathematics

Algebraic, symbolic and symbolic-numeric algorithms. Simplification, function manipulation, equations, summation, integration, ODE/PDE, linear algebra, number theory, group theory and geometric computing.

-Computer Science

Theoretical and practical problems in symbolic computation. Systems, problem solving environments, user interfaces, software, libraries, parallel/distributed computing and programming languages for symbolic computation, concrete analysis, benchmarking, theoretical and practical complexity of computer algebra algorithms, automatic differentiation, code generation, mathematical data structures and exchange protocols.


Problem treatments using algebraic, symbolic or symbolic-numeric computation in an essential or a novel way. Engineering, economics and finance, physical and biological sciences, computer science, logic, mathematics, statistics and education.
