CF Posters: International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation ISSAC 2008

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


ISSAC, the International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation, is
the  premier  annual  gathering of  the  Symbolic  Mathematical  Computation
community  to  present  and  discuss  new developments and original research
results in all areas of symbolic mathematical computation.

The  poster  sessions  at  ISSAC  are  ideal  avenues  for presenting recent
research results  or  ongoing  research  projects  that  might  not  yet  be
complete, but whose preliminary results are already interesting nonetheless.

Authors  are  invited  to submit  extended abstracts  of  posters in the PDF
format. All posters will be reviewed by the Poster Committee with input from
experts in  the relevant areas.  Posters will be evaluated based on content,
novelty,   originality,   contribution,   value   to   the   community,  and
presentation.  Abstracts of accepted Posters  will be distributed in printed
form at the conference venue and will be printed in an upcoming issue of the
ACM SIGSAM Communications in Computer Algebra.

Details  on  submission  of  contributions  may  be  found  by  visiting the
submission page
Authors are expected to present their work at the symposium.


Deadline to submit extended abstract (.pdf): May 1, 2008
Notification of Acceptance: June 1, 2008
Deadline to submit (.tex) updated abstracts: June 15, 2008


Posters can be on any topic  mentioned in the  Call for Papers of ISSAC 2008
which include but are not restricted to the following areas:
Algorithmic Mathematics: Algebraic, Symbolic and Symbolic-Numeric Algorithms
Computer Science: Theoretical and practical problems in Symbolic Computation
Applications: Problem treatments using  Algorithmic, Symbolic,  or Symbolic-
Numeric Algorithms in novel or  essential  ways,  including  applications to
Education,  The Sciences,  Engineering,  or Business.  Reports  on  computer
implementations are welcome.
