SNC 2011

First Announcement and Call for Papers

4th International Workshop on Symbolic Numeric Computation

June 7-9, 2011, San Jose, California  

Member of ACM Federated Computing Research Conference


Algorithms that combine techniques from symbolic and numeric
computation have been of increasing importance and interest over the
past decade. The necessity to work reliably with imprecise and noisy
data, and for speed and accuracy within algebraic and hybrid-numerical
problems, has encouraged a new synergy between the numerical and
symbolic computing fields. Novel and exciting problems from
industrial, mathematical and computational domains are now being
explored and solved.

The goal of the present workshop is to support the interaction and
integration of symbolic and numeric computing. Earlier meetings in
this series include the SNAP 96 Workshop, held in Sophia Antipolis,
France, the SNC 2005 meeting, held in Xi'an, China, SNC 2007 which was
held in London, Canada, and SNC 2009, held in Kyoto, Japan. The 4th
International Workshops on Symbolic-Numeric Computation will be held
on June 7-9 at San Jose, California, as a member of the ACM Federated
Computing Research Conference (FCRC).

SNC 2011 is affiliated with the 2011 International Symposium on
Symbolic and Algebraic Computation (ISSAC 2011) which will be held on
June 8-11, 2011 as another member of the ACM FCRC.

Conference Topics
Specific topics of SNC 2011 include, but are not limited to:

- Hybrid symbolic-numeric algorithms in linear, polynomial and 
  differential algebra 
- Approximate polynomial GCD and factorization
- Symbolic-numeric methods for solving polynomial systems
- Resultants and structured matrices for symbolic-numeric computation
- Differential equations for symbolic-numeric computation
- Symbolic-numeric methods for geometric computation
- Symbolic-numeric algorithms in algebraic geometry
- Symbolic-numeric algorithms for nonlinear optimization
- Implementation of symbolic-numeric algorithms
- Model construction by approximate algebraic algorithms 
- Applications of symbolic-numeric computation: global optimization, 
  verification, etc.

Submission Instructions
SNC 2011 invites the submission of original research contributions to
be considered for publication and presentation at the
conference. Papers should not duplicate work published or submitted
for consideration elsewhere prior or in parallel to the SNC

Papers must be in English and shall be reviewed by the Program
Committee and external referees. Submissions should be in the form of
abstracts (2 pages) or full papers (up to 10 pages) in the ACM
sig-alternate.cls style (see
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates). Submission
is exclusively via EasyChair (see
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=snc2011). At least one
author of each accepted paper must register for the conference to
present the paper.

Conference e-proceedings will be published by ACM and also be in the
ACM Digital Library.

In keeping with tradition of previous SNC conferences, a special issue
of the journal Theoretical Computer Science (TCS,
http://www.elsevier.com/locate/tcs) is planned for after the
conference. SNC 2011 speakers will be able to submit full papers to
the special issue. The specifics of submission to the special issue,
the names of the Guest Editors, as well as the relevant deadlines will
be announced at the conference.
