ISSAC 2011


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.

ISSAC 2011 is affiliated with the 2011 International Workshop on Symbolic Numeric Computation (SNC 2011) which will be held on June 7–9, 2011 as another member of the ACM FCRC.

Invited and Tutorial Speakers

Two invited plenary speakers are scheduled during the main program on June 9–11:

  • Victor S. Miller, Center for Communications Research, Princeton, USA, on Computational aspects of elliptic curves and modular forms
  • Gilles Villard, CNRS-Université de Lyon, France, on Recent progress in linear algebra for lattice basis reduction

Three tutorial sessions are organized on Wednesday, June 8, by the following speakers:

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 differentiation.

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.
