Symbolic-Numeric Computation 2007 (SNC 2007): Program announced. Registration Open

Symbolic-Numeric Computation 2007 (SNC 2007)

                    July 25-27, 2007 -- London Canada


                         Third Announcement and 

                         CALL for PARTICIPATION


  ** Preliminary program available **

  ** Registration open **


  Individuals who wish to attend the conference are invited to
  register via the conference web site.


  Algorithms that combine ideas from symbolic and numeric computation have
  been of increasing interest over the past decade.  The growing demand for
  speed, accuracy and reliability in mathematical computing has accelerated
  the process of blurring the distinction between two areas of research that
  were previously quite separate.

  The goal of the present workshop is to support the interaction and
  integration of symbolic and numeric computing.  Earlier meetings in this
  series include the SNAP 96 Workshop, held in Sophia Antipolis, France,
  and the SNC 2005 meeting, held in Xi'an, China.  Following the tradition,
  Symbolic-Numeric Computation 2007 will be held July 25-27 in London, Canada.

  SNC 2007 is affiliated with the 2007 International Symposium on Symbolic and
  Algebraic Computation (ISSAC 2007).  Co-located with this workshop will be
  PASCO 2007, the 2007 International Workshop on Parallel Symbolic Computation.
  SNC and PASCO will be held immediately prior to the ISSAC 2007 meeting, both
  at the University of Western Ontario, Canada.  ISSAC 2007 will be held
  nearby in Waterloo, Canada.
