CALL FOR PAPERS
JOURNAL OF SYMBOLIC COMPUTATION
SPECIAL ISSUE ON SYMBOLIC AND ALGEBRAIC COMPUTATION
FOUNDATIONS, ALGORITHMICS AND APPLICATIONS
Wolfram Koepf and Stephen M. Watt
This special issue is related to topics discussed in the context of
the ISSAC Conference in July 2010 in Munich, Germany. The International
Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation (ISSAC) is the premier
annual conference to present and discuss new developments and original
research results in all areas of symbolic mathematical computation.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
Exact and symbolic linear, polynomial and differential algebra.
Symbolic-numeric, homotopy, perturbation and series methods.
Computational geometry, group theory and number theory.
Summation, recurrence equations, integration, solution of ODE & PDE.
Symbolic methods in other areas of pure and applied mathematics.
General methods or methods that improve important special cases.
Theoretical and practical aspects, including general algorithms,
techniques for important special cases, complexity analyses of
algebraic algorithms and algebraic complexity.
Design of packages and systems. Data representation. Software analysis.
Considerations for modern hardware, e.g., current memory and storage
technologies, high performance systems and mobile devices.
User interface issues, including collaborative computing and new methods
for input and manipulation.
Interfaces and use with systems for, e.g., document processing,
digital libraries, courseware, simulation and optimization, automated
theorem proving, computer aided design and automatic differentiation.
Applications that stretch the current limits of computer algebra,
use computer algebra in new ways or in situations with broad impact.
The special issue will contain a selection of papers which
substantially extend existing works on these topics. The submission
is open to contributions not necessarly related to papers included in
the proceedings of ISSAC 2010.
The guiding principles for the publication procedure will be the following:
- Original research results and insightful analysis of current concerns are
solicited for submission. Submissions must not duplicate work already
published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Further insights on
papers included in the Proceedings of the ISSAC 2010 Conference are
welcome, but the new contributions should be relevant and specifically
highlighted in the submission cover letter.
The paper should explain in its introduction, what the problem is, its
importance, the contribution of the paper, how it is related to the
existing literature, and what are the significant improvements/enhancement
compared to the related ISSAC 2010 paper, if it exists.
- All the papers will be refereed according to the JSC standards.
- Papers should be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or
- DEADLINE: December 10, 2010
- The format is pdf. Please prepare your manuscript by using the JSC style
files, which are available from the JSC home pages at
- Notification of acceptance: May 17, 2011.
- The final versions should be sent in by the end of May 2010, with tex
sources, in the same way as the initial submission.
