EXTENDED DEADLINES
==================
    * April 28, 2008: Deadline for abstract registration.
    * May 5, 2008: Deadline for full paper or extended abstract submission.
    * June 2, 2008: Notification.
    * June 20, 2008: Full papers.
    * July 12-13, 2008: Workshop.

SCOPE AND AIMS
==============
Symbolic Computation is the science of computing with symbolic
objects (terms, formulae, programs, representations of
algebraic objects etc.). Powerful symbolic algorithms have been
developed during the past decades like resolution proving,
model checking, provers for various inductive domains,
rewriting techniques, cylindric algebraic decomposition,
Groebner bases, characteristic sets, telescoping for recurrence
relations, etc.

In this workshop, we concentrate on the application of symbolic
algorithms to software science. Topics include but are not
limited to the application of symbolic techniques to:

    * algorithm (program) synthesis
    * algorithm (program) verification
    * termination analysis of algorithms (programs)
    * complexity analysis of algorithms (programs)
    * extraction of specifications from algorithms (programs)
    * generation of inductive assertion for algorithms (programs)
    * algorithm (program) transformations
    * component-based programming
    * query languages (in particular for XML documents)
    * semantic web
    * etc.

This Workshop grew out of a couple of internal workshops of the
Theorema Group at RISC (Research Institute for Symbolic
Computation, SCORE (Symbolic Computation Research Group,
University of Tsukuba, Japan) and SSFG (Software Science
Foundation Group, Kyoto University, Japan). We now open the
workshop series for the international community and we welcome
paper submissions. Also, for the first time, the SCCH (Software
Competence Center Hagenberg) will join in the organization of
the workshop.

SUBMISSION
==========
Submissions (papers or extended abstracts) should be prepared
in LaTeX, formatted according to the Springer llncs style, and
should not exceed 15 pages. Preliminary proceedings will be
available at the workshop. At the workshop, it will be decided 
whether a special issue of the Journal of Symbolic Computation 
with full versions of selected papers will be published after 
the workshop.

PUBLICATION
===========
After the workshop, organizing a special issue of the 
Journal of Symbolic Computation is envisaged.
