Call for Papers
ISSAC is an annual international symposium that provides an opportunity
to learn of new developments and to present original research in all areas
of symbolic and algebraic computation. Research results and insightful
analyses of current concerns are the primary focus. Papers will be
reviewed by the Program Committee and additional referees. Survey
articles may be suitable for submission, if clearly identified as such,
and will be considered in a separate category from the research papers.
Simultaneous submission for publication elsewhere is not allowed.
The conference topics include, but are not limited to:
Algorithmic mathematics: Algebraic, symbolic, and symbolic-numeric
algorithms including: simplification, polynomial and rational function
manipulations, algebraic equations, summation and recurrence equations,
integration and differential equations, linear algebra, number theory,
group computations, and geometric computing.
Computer science: Theoretical and practical problems in symbolic
mathematical manipulation including: computer algebra systems, data structures,
computational complexity, problem solving environments, programming languages
and libraries for symbolic-numeric-geometric computation, user interfaces,
visualization, software architectures, parallel or distributed computing,
mapping algorithms to architectures, analysis and benchmarking, automatic
differentiation and code generation, automatic theorem proving, mathematical
data exchange protocols.
Applications: Problem treatments incorporating algebraic, symbolic,
symbolic-numeric and geometric computation in an essential or novel way,
including engineering, economics and finance, architecture, physical and
biological sciences, computer sciences, logic, mathematics, statistics,
and uses in education.
Authors are invited to submit papers to the Program Committee Chair before
January 17, 2000. The preferred method is as follows:
If an author is unable to upload via ftp a Postscript or PDF version of
six copies of it should be mailed to the Program Committee Chair to arrive
by the above date (hard deadline). Please state the contact author's name,
address and telephone number, as well as fax and e-mail addresses if available.
Ftp to sunshine.ticam.utexas.edu and log in as anonymous.
Provide your e-mail address as the password.
Put a Postscript or PDF version of the paper into the pub/incoming
Send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org,
indicating the name of the file, the title of the paper, and the contact
author's name and e-mail address. (Note: the papers themselves should be
uploaded via ftp as described above; they should not be sent via e-mail.)
Authors may submit additional background reference material that is
not widely available.
Papers must be in English and should not exceed 8 pages in the standard
format for ACM proceedings, or 20 to 22 pages of text in LaTeX 12pt article
style. The necessary files for the LaTeX article and bibliography styles
If you use LaTeX-2e and prefer the newer class file (instead of acmconf.sty),
you will need:
Each paper should have an introductory section that describes the problem,
motivates the study of the problem, states the main results, compares other
work (including theoretical or empirical performance), and summarizes the
Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their work at the symposium
and will be required to sign the ACM copyright agreement. Some papers submitted
to the symposium may be accepted for poster-session presentation; these
will not appear in the proceedings.
17 January 2000: Submission deadline.
31 March 2000: Notification of acceptance.
19 April 2000: Camera-ready copy received.
A poster session will be organized separately. Please consult the
Call for Posters. Abstracts of all posters will
be distributed at the symposium.
