18th International Symposium on Symbolic and Numeric Algorithms for Scientific Computing

SYNASC aims to stimulate the interaction between the two scientific communities of symbolic and numeric computing and to exhibit interesting applications of the areas both in theory and in practice. The choice of the topic is motivated by the belief of the organizers that the dialogue between the two communities is very necessary for accelerating the progress in making the computer a truly intelligent aid for mathematicians and engineers.

    * In the second step the authors should submit the full paper.

 

There are four categories of submissions:
    * Regular papers describing fully completed research results (up to 8 pages in the two-columns paper style).
    * System descriptions and experimental papers describing implementation results of experimental data, with a link to the reported results (up to 4 pages in the two-columns paper style).
    * Short papers, describing work in progress and/or preliminary results (up to 4 pages in the two-columns paper style).
    * Posters, describing ongoing work and research challenges of PhD students (up to 2 pages in the two-columns paper style).
 
Both the abstract and the full paper should be submitted electronically through http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=synasc2016.
