ISSAC 2021

The International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation (ISSAC) is the premier conference for research in symbolic computation and computer algebra. ISSAC 2021 will be the 46th 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.


Hybrid Format

The international situation makes it impossible to hold ISSAC'21 the way usual ISSAC conferences are held. To offer a reasonable experience to our community, ISSAC'21 is organized according to the following exceptional format:

This choice ensures that all talks and components of the conference have the same duration as in usual (in person) ISSAC meetings.

A pre-conference workshop in honor of Vladimir Gerdt takes place on Sunday 18 July.
