General Information

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.
