CALL FOR PAPERS: Special issue of the Journal of Symbolic Computation
JOURNAL OF SYMBOLIC COMPUTATION SPECIAL ISSUE FOR ISSAC 2011
Guest Editors: Ioannis Z. Emiris, Eric Schost 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. This special issue is related to topics discussed in the context of the ISSAC 2011 Conference, held in San Jose, California. IMPORTANT DATES: - submission: 20th of October, 2011 - notification of acceptance / rejection: early April 2012 - camera ready version: May 2012 - issue ready: July 2012 All areas of computer algebra and symbolic computation are of interest. These include, but are not limited to: Algorithmic aspects: Exact and symbolic linear, polynomial and differential algebra. Symbolic-numeric, homotopy, and series methods. Computational geometry, group theory, number theory, quantifier elimination and logic. Summation, recurrence equations, integration, ODE & PDE. Theoretical and practical aspects, including algebraic complexity, and techniques for important special cases. Software aspects: Design of packages and systems, data representation. Parallel and distributed algebraic computing, considerations for modern hardware. User-interface issues, and use with systems for, e.g., digital libraries, courseware, simulation and optimization, automated theorem-proving, computer-aided design, and automatic differentiation. Application aspects: Applications that stretch the current limits of computer algebra, use it in new ways, or apply it in situations with broad impact, in particular to the natural sciences, life sciences, engineering, economics and finance, and education. The submission is open to contributions not necessarly related to papers included in the proceedings of ISSAC 2011. Papers must not duplicate work already published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Improved or extended versions of papers included in the proceedings of ISSAC 2011 are welcome; in that case, a cover letter should explain what are the new ideas compared to the related ISSAC 2011 proceedings paper. All the papers will be refereed according to the JSC standards. Papers submissions should follow the guidelines for JSC submssions (see www4.ncsu.edu/~hong/jsc.htm) and should be submitted to easychair at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=jscissac11 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? - Why is the contribution original? - Why is the contribution non-trivial? When feasible, all the main definitions, theorems and algorithms should be illustrated by simple but meaningful examples.
