Call for Software Presentations
                                ISSAC 2008
       International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation
                   RISC, Hagenberg, Austria, July 20-23, 2008


ISSAC, the International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation, is
the  premier  annual  gathering of  the  Symbolic  Mathematical  Computation
community  to  present  and  discuss  new developments and original research
results in symbolic and algebraic computation.

Software  developers  are  invited  to  present  new  software  for  
problems  in symbolic and algebraic computation  at  ISSAC 2008.  
will be given 15 minutes to demonstrate  their software to participants in a
special session  for  software presentations.  There  will  be  5 additional
minutes between presentations for setup.

Please submit an extended abstract in PDF format describing the software and
what you will present to Michael Monagan by e-mail  at mmonagan at cecm.sfu.ca.
Please include in the subject heading ISSAC08 Software Presentation.  
include a valid URL or contact address for  obtaining the  software packages
and documentation.

Abstracts  will  be  evaluated   based  on  content,  novelty,  originality,
importance  and  potential  value of  the software to the community.  Please
identify  in your  extended abstract  what is new  that  will be  presented.
If you are also presenting a paper at ISSAC 2008  related  to your 
please   identify,  in  your  e-mail,   the   differences  between  the  two
presentations.  You  may  also  present  your  software  as  a  poster  (see
http://www.risc.uni-linz.ac.at/issac2008/ the call for posters).

Abstracts of  accepted  software presentations  will  be  distributed at the
symposium  and  also  printed  in  an  upcoming  issue  of  the  ACM  SIGSAM
Communications in Computer Algebra.


Deadline to submit extended abstract (.pdf): May 1, 2008
Notification of Acceptance: June 1, 2008
Deadline to submit (.tex) updated abstracts: June 15, 2008


Posters can be on any topic  mentioned in the  Call for Papers of ISSAC 
which include but are not restricted to the following areas:
Algorithmic Mathematics: Algebraic, Symbolic and Symbolic-Numeric Algorithms
Computer Science: Theoretical and practical problems in Symbolic Computation
Applications: Problem treatments using  Algorithmic, Symbolic,  or Symbolic-
Numeric Algorithms in novel or  essential  ways,  including  
applications to
Education,  The Sciences,  Engineering,  or Business.
