     ---------------------------------------------
      Workshop on Approximate Commutative Algebra

           RISC, Linz  24-26th July 2008
     ---------------------------------------------


The workshop will take place right after ISSAC 2008, and right before
ACA 2008.  Summary information about the workshop can be found below;
for full details visit the website:

The main topic of the workshop is research pertaining to computations with
polynomials having approximate coefficients.  Contributed articles may be
either original research or in the form of a tutorial/survey; all
contributions will undergo the usual academic refereeing process.  Accepted
articles will be published in the proceedings as a volume in the Springer
"RISC Series".

Important dates:

Background
----------

In 2006 the Radon Institute of Computational and Applied Mathematics (RICAM)
of the Austrian Academy of Science and the Research Institute for Symbolic
Computation (RISC) of the Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria
organized a "Special Semester on Groebner Bases and Related Methods"
designed and directed by Professor Bruno Buchberger, the inventor of
Groebner basis theory and method.  The special semester consisted mainly of
a series of workshops on various aspects of the theory of Groebner bases
and on important applications of the method.

As part of this series, Prof. L. Robbiano conducted the Workshop B1
entitled "Approximate Commutative Algebra" (during 20-24th Feb 2006).
