Stichting Computer Algebra Nederland
CAN, Computer Algebra Nederland, is a foundation established in
1988 stimulating and coordinating the use of computer algebra (systems)
in education and research. The number of computer algebra specialists and
users in the Netherlands is limited and they are
scattered over several disciplines,
each having its own scientific and organizational traditions. An additional
goal of CAN is to provide specialists and users with a common platform for
discussing problems of mutual interest.
NEWS: Call for submissions (2016)
This call for submissions (in Dutch) will be officially launched
