Journal of Symbolic Computation
Special Issue on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation
Guest Editors: Carlos D'Andrea & Bernard Mourrain
The special issue is related to topics discussed in the context of the
ISSAC Conference in July 2007 at Waterloo, Canada.
The International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation (ISSAC) is the
premier annual conference to present and discuss new developments and
originalresearch results in all areas of symbolic mathematical computation.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
Algorithmic Mathematics:
Algebraic, symbolic and symbolic-numeric algorithms. Simplification, function
manipulation, summation, integration, polynomial/differential/difference
equations, linear algebra, number theory, group and invariant theory,
geometric computing.
Computer Science:
Theoretical and practical problems in symbolic computation. Systems,
problem solving environments, user interfaces, software, libraries, parallel/
distributed computing and programming languages, concrete analysis,
benchmarking, theoretical and practical complexity, automatic differentiation,
code generation, mathematical data structures and exchange protocols.
Applications:
Problem treatments using algebraic, symbolic or symbolic-numeric
computation in an essential or a novel way. Engineering, economics and finance,
physical and biological sciences, computer science, logic, mathematics and education.
The special issue will contain a selection of papers which
substantially extend existing works on these topics. The submission is
open to contributions not necessarly related to papers included in the
proceedings of ISSAC 07.
The guiding principles for the publication procedure will be the following:
* Original research results and insightful analysis of current concerns are
solicited for submission. Submissions must not duplicate work already
published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Further insights on papers
included in the Proceedings of the ISSAC 2007 Conference are welcome, but the new
contributions should be relevant.
The paper should explain in its introduction, what the problem is, its importance, the contribution of the paper, how it
is related to the existing literature, and what are the significant
improvements/enhancement compared to the related ISSAC 2007 paper, if it
exists.
* All the papers will be refereed according to the JSC standards.
* Papers should be submitted to http://www.easychair.org/jsc-issac07/
* DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 30, 2007
* The format is pdf. Please prepare your manuscript by using the JSC style
files, which are available from the JSC home pages at
http://www4.ncsu.edu/~hong/jsc.htm.
* Notification of acceptance: around end of February 2008.
* The final versions should be sent in by the end of March 2008, with
tex sources, in the same way as the initial submission.
* The special issue is expected to appear by the time of ISSAC 2008.
