ISSAC 2011
First Announcement and Call for Papers

International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation
San Jose, California, June 8-11, 2011

Member of ACM Federated Computing Research Conference


The International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation
(ISSAC) is the premier conference for research in symbolic computation
and computer algebra. ISSAC 2011 is the 36th meeting in the series,
started in 1966 and held annually since 1981, in North America, Europe
and Asia. The conference presents a range of invited speakers,
tutorials, poster sessions, software demonstrations and vendor
exhibits with a centerpiece of contributed research papers.

Important Dates

Abstract submission deadline:		Saturday, Jan. 8, 2011, 23:59 PST 
Full paper submission deadline:		Thursday, Jan. 13, 2011, 23:59 PST
Notification of acceptance/rejection:	Thursday, March 10, 2011
Camera-ready copy due:			Thursday, March 31, 2011

Submission Instructions

ISSAC 2011 invites the submission of original research contributions
to be considered for publication and presentation at the conference.
Papers should not duplicate work published or submitted for
consideration elsewhere prior or in parallel to the ISSAC submission.
Submission is in two stages: first the abstract is submitted by the
abstract deadline, then the associated paper may be submitted up to
the paper deadline.

Papers must be in English and shall be reviewed by the Program
Committee and external referees. Authors may be asked to respond to
reviews shortly before acceptance decisions are made. Papers cannot
exceed 8 pages in the ACM sig-alternate.cls style (see
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates). If
necessary, they can have an appendix that may be read by the reviewers
and PC members, but which is not considered part of the Proceedings
paper. Submission is exclusively via EasyChair. At least one author of
each accepted paper must register for the conference to present the

Conference Topics

All areas of computer algebra and symbolic computation are of
interest. These include, but are not limited to:

Algorithmic aspects: Exact and symbolic linear, polynomial and
differential algebra. Symbolic-numeric, homotopy, and series methods.
Computational geometry, group theory, number theory, quantifier
elimination and logic. Summation, recurrence equations, integration,
ODE & PDE. Theoretical and practical aspects, including algebraic
complexity, and techniques for important special cases.

Software aspects: Design of packages and systems, data representation.
Parallel and distributed algebraic computing, considerations for
modern hardware. User-interface issues, and use with systems for,
e.g., digital libraries, courseware, simulation and optimization,
automated theorem-proving, computer-aided design, and automatic

Application aspects: Applications that stretch the current limits of
computer algebra, use it in new ways, or apply it in situations with
broad impact, in particular to the natural sciences, life sciences,
engineering, economics and finance, and education.
