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.


Note Concerning the COVID-19 Pandemic

The current situation makes it unclear whether ISSAC 2021 can be held in person. Should it need to be held as a virtual conference, we would strive to maintain all aspects of the program, possibly on a slightly expanded period of time to better accommodate attendance from different time zones.
