Call for Software Presentations


(A pdf version of the Call For Software Presentations may be found here)

ISSAC, the International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation, is the premier annual gathering of the Symbolic Mathematical Computation community to present and discuss new developments and original research results in symbolic and algebraic computation.

Software developers are invited to present new software for solving problems in symbolic and algebraic computation at ISSAC 2010. Presenters will be given 15 minutes to demonstrate their software to participants in a special session for software presentations. There will be 5 additional minutes between presentations for setup.

Please submit an extended abstract in PDF format describing your software and what you will present at ISSAC to Michael Monagan by Email at Please include in the subject heading ISSAC 2010 Software Presentation. Please include a valid URL or contact address for obtaining the software packages and documentation.

Abstracts will be evaluated based on content, novelty, originality, importance and the potential value of the software to the community. Please identify in your extended abstract what is new that will be presented at ISSAC 2010. If you are also presenting a related paper at ISSAC 2010, please identify, in your Email, the differences between the two presentations. You may also present your software as a poster.

Extended abstracts of accepted software presentations will be distributed at the symposium and also printed in an issue of the ACM SIGSAM Communications in Computer Algebra. These published versions of extended abstracts will be restricted to a maximum of 3 pages.


Software presentations can be on any topic mentioned in the Call for Papers of ISSAC 2010 which include but are not restricted to the following areas:
