Call for Papers
ISSAC is the yearly premier international symposium in Symbolic and
Algebraic Computation. It provides an opportunity to learn of new
developments and to present original research results in all areas of
symbolic mathematical computation. Planned activities include invited
presentations, research papers, poster sessions, tutorial courses,
vendor exhibits and software demonstrations.
ISSAC'2004 will be held at the University of Cantabria in Santander,
Spain, from July 4 to 7, 2004.
Extended Deadline for Submissions:
January 14, 2004

Topics of the meeting include, but are not limited to:
Algebraic, symbolic and symbolic-numeric algorithms.
Simplification, function manipulation, equations, summation,
integration, ODE/PDE, linear algebra, number theory, group
and geometric computing.
Theoretical and practical problems in symbolic
computation. Systems, problem solving environments, user
interfaces, software, libraries, parallel/distributed
computing and programming languages for symbolic
computation, concrete analysis, benchmarking, theoretical
and practical complexity of computer algebra algorithms,
automatic differentiation, code generation, mathematical
data structures and exchange protocols.
Problem treatments using algebraic, symbolic or
symbolic-numeric computation in an essential or a novel
way. Engineering, economics and finance, physical and biological
sciences, computer science, logic, mathematics, statistics,
Instructions to Authors
Original research results and insightful analyses of current concerns
are solicited for submission. Submissions must not substantially
duplicate work published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Late
submissions will be rejected.
Papers will be reviewed by a program committee and
additional referees. Proceedings will be distributed at the symposium.
Papers must be in English and should not exceed 8 pages in the
standard format for ACM proceedings, or 20 to 22 pages of text in
LaTeX 12pt article style.
To submit your contribution, please visit the Paper
Each paper should have an abstract as well as an introductory section that:
- Describes the problem.
- Motivates the study of the problem.
- States the main results and compares them to other work (including
theoretical or empirical performance).
- Summarizes the original aspects of the contribution.
Formatting requirements will be based on the ACM Proceedings
Templates. For instance in LaTeX2e you should use the
acm_proc_article-sp.cls document class to format your document. For
information concerning ACM Proceedings Templates see http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html.
Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their work at the
symposium, or make arrangements to have it presented, and will be
required to sign the ACM copyright agreement (cf. http://www.acm.org/pubs/copyright_form.html).
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.
Best student author award
This award will be given to the best student author.
An author who is a Full-time student at
the time of submission is eligible for the award. This
status should be indicated when the paper is submitted.
