CFP: JSC Special Issue on Symbolic Computation in Software Science

    Special Issue on Symbolic Computation in Software Science

This special issue is related to the topics of the workshop SCSS'08
( Symbolic 
Computation in Software Science, which took place in Hagenberg, 
Austria, on July 12-13, 2008. Both participants of the workshop and 
other authors are invited to submit contributions. 

Symbolic Computation is the science of computing with symbolic objects 
(terms, formulae, programs, representations of algebraic objects etc.). 
Powerful symbolic algorithms have been developed during the past decades 
like resolution, model checking, proving methods for various inductive 
domains, rewriting techniques, cylindric algebraic decomposition, 
Groebner bases, characteristic sets, telescoping for recurrence 
relations, etc. In this special issue, we concentrate on the application 
of symbolic algorithms to software science. Topics include but are not 
limited to the application of symbolic techniques to:

   * algorithm (program) synthesis
   * algorithm (program) verification
   * termination analysis of algorithms (programs)
   * complexity analysis of algorithms (programs)
   * extraction of specifications from algorithms (programs)
   * generation of inductive assertions for algorithms (programs)
   * algorithm (program) transformations
   * component-based programming
   * querying (e.g. XML)
   * semantic web
   * ...

We expect original articles (typically 15-30 pages; submission of larger 
papers will be evaluated depending on editorial constraints) that 
present high-quality contributions that have not been previously 
published and that must not be simultaneously submitted for publication 

Submissions must comply with JSC's author guidelines. They must be 
written in English and should be prepared in LaTeX using the "Elsevier 
Article Class (elsart.cls)" with "JSC add-on style (yjsco.sty)" and 
"Harvard style references (elsart-harv.bst)". The package  "JSC LaTex" 
(that contains all the necessary style files and a template) can be 
obtained from

The introduction of the paper MUST explicitly address the following 
questions in succinct and informal manner:

   * What is the problem?
   * Why is the problem important?
   * What has been done so far on the problem?
   * What is the main contribution of the paper on the problem?
   * Is the contribution original? Explain why.
   * Is the contribution non-trivial? Explain why.

All the main definitions, theorems and algorithms must be illustrated by 
simple but meaningful examples.

Without these, the paper will not be considered.

We also encourage tutorials/surveys. They will be reviewed for

  - Quality of Presentation
  - Fair/complete crediting of the people
    who worked on the subject.

It must contain:

  - List of the main problems/questions
  - Motivation/importance
  - Description of main ideas/algorithms/improvements so far
  - List of important open problems
  - Complete bib

The target audience should be "non-expert" on the subject.
(starting PhD students or experts on other subjects).

The problems, ideas, algorithms, etc should be illustrated by
well-chosen examples.

If you plan to submit a tutorial or a survey, make sure that the title
contains a phrase, such as "tutorial on ......."  or "survey of .....", etc.

Submissions to this special issue are hereby encouraged via the 
EasyChair submission system:

   * Submission of papers: March 23, 2009.
   * Notification of acceptance/rejection: July 27, 2009.
   * Final version: September 14, 2009.
