International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation

August 13-15, 1998

University of Rostock

Sponsored by GI,
In cooperation with ACM-SIGSAM and ACM-SIGNUM

ISSAC is a yearly international symposium that provides an opportunity to learn of new developments and to present original research results in all areas of symbolic mathematical computation.

Topics of the meeting include, but are not limited to:

Algorithmic mathematics Algebraic, symbolic, and symbolic-numeric algorithms including: simplification, polynomial and rational function manipulations, algebraic equations, summation, integration, linear algebra and matrix computations, number theory, ODE/PDE, complex computation, group computations, and geometric computing;

Computer science Theoretical and practical problems in symbolic mathematical computation including: computer algebra systems, problem solving environments, programming languages and libraries for symbolic computation, user interfaces, data structures, software architectures, parallel/distributed computing, mapping algorithms to architectures, concrete analysis and benchmarking, complexity of computer algebra algorithms, artifical intelligence techniques, automatic differentiation and code generation, mathematical data exchange protocols;

Applications Problem treatments incorporating algebraic, symbolic or symbolic-numeric computation in an essential or novel way, including engineering, economics and finance, physical and biological sciences, computer science, logic, mathematics, statistics, and use in education.

Conference Activities / Preliminary Program

The planned activities include invited presentations, research and survey papers, poster sessions, tutorial courses, vendor exhibits, and software demonstrations. Proceedings will be distributed at the symposium.

Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their work at the symposium and will be required to sign the ACM copyright agreement. Some papers may be accepted for poster-session presentation; these will not appear in the proceedings. Abstracts of all posters will be distributed at the symposium. For poster submissions please consult the Call for Posters.

Proposals for workshops, tutorial courses, demonstrations, panel discussions or related activities are welcomed. User-groups, editorial boards or other associations desiring meeting space during the course of the symposium are encouraged to contact the conference organizers.

Travel Arrangements

ISSAC'98 will be held in the historic buildings of the University of Rostock, Germany. Accomodations will be available at nearby hotels. The old ``Hansestadt'' Rostock is situated close to the Baltic Sea and about 200 km away from Berlin. Participants have the occasion to attend beforehand the IMACS Conference on Applications of Computer Algebra IMACS ACA '98 in Prague and afterwards the International Congress of Mathematicians ICM'98 held August 18-27 in Berlin.
