ISSAC 2018

The International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation (ISSAC) is the premier conference for research in symbolic computation and computer algebra. ISSAC 2018 will be the 43rd meeting in the series, which started in 1966 and has been held annually since 1981. The conference presents a range of invited speakers, tutorials, poster sessions, software demonstrations and vendor exhibits with a center-piece of contributed research papers.

* Papers and abstracts have to be submitted via easychair ( The website for the abstract submission and the paper submission is the same, i.e. you will not find a distinct area for the abstract submission. You can submit your abstract first, and then override your submission with the full paper. It is to be remarked that you do not need to first submit an abstract prior to the paper if your paper is ready by the abstract submission deadline. The abstract submission possibility serves the purpose to provide authors with more time to complete their papers while the program committee can begin to find suitable reviewers based on the overview they obtain from the abstracts.
** You need to submit an abstract by the abstract submission deadline if your full paper is not completed by the abstract submission deadline.
