CFP: International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation ISSAC 2008

                                 ISSAC 2008
        International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation
                     Hagenberg, Austria, July 20-23, 2008


The International Symposium on Symbolic and  Algebraic  Computation  (ISSAC)
is the premier annual conference to present  and  discuss  new  developments
and  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


ISSAC 2008 will be held July 20 to 23, 2008 in Hagenberg near Linz, Austria
Deadline for submissions: January 14, 2008 (Midnight [24:00 EST])


They include, but are not limited to:

Algorithmic  Mathematics:    Algebraic,   symbolic   and    symbolic-numeric
algorithms.  Simplification,  function manipulation, summation, integration,
polynomial / differential / difference  equations,  linear  algebra,  number
theory, group and invariant theory, 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,  concrete  analysis, benchmarking,  theoretical   and   practical
complexity, automatic differentiation, code  generation,  mathematical  data
structures and exchange protocols.

Applications:  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 and education.


Original research results and insightful analyses of  current  concerns  are
solicited for submission. Submissions must not duplicate work  published  or
submitted for publication elsewhere. Papers will be reviewed by the  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.
