Call for Posters

ISSAC is an annual international symposium that provides an opportunity to learn of new developments and to present original research in all areas of symbolic and algebraic computation.

The poster sessions are an ideal venue for presenting recent research results or ongoing research projects that might not yet be complete, but whose preliminary results are already interesting nonetheless. Posters describing computer algebra systems and applications are also especially welcome. To encourage poster submissions of good quality, a best poster prize, consisting of a certificate, will be awarded. Posters will be judged based on content and presentation.

Conference Topics

The conference topics include, but are not limited to: 
  • Algorithmic mathematics:  Algebraic, symbolic, and symbolic-numeric algorithms including:  simplification, polynomial and rational function manipulations, algebraic equations, summation and recurrence equations, integration and differential equations, linear algebra, number theory, group computations, and geometric computing.
  • Computer science:  Theoretical and practical problems in symbolic mathematical manipulation including: computer algebra systems, data structures, computational complexity, problem solving environments, programming languages and libraries for symbolic-numeric-geometric computation, user interfaces, visualization, software architectures, parallel or distributed computing, mapping algorithms to architectures, analysis and benchmarking, automatic differentiation and code generation, automatic theorem proving, mathematical data exchange protocols.
  • Applications: Problem treatments incorporating algebraic, symbolic, symbolic-numeric and geometric computation in an essential or novel way, including engineering, economics and finance, architecture, physical and biological sciences, computer sciences, logic, mathematics, statistics, and uses in education.

Submission Instructions

Authors are invited to submit an abstract of no more than 900 words describing the contents of the poster. Plain LaTeX or TeX is preferred, but plain text is also acceptable. E-mail submissions are strongly encouraged and should be sent to the Poster Committee Chair at Regular mail submissions should be sent via air mail to the Poster Committee Chair's address, shown further below. Please allow at least one week for air mail delivery.

Important Dates
