Call for Papers

                       SYNASC 2013

              15th International Symposium on
   Symbolic and Numeric Algorithms for Scientific Computing
         September 23-26, 2013, Timisoara, Romania


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.

Submissions of research papers are invited. The papers must contain 
original research results not submitted and not published elsewhere. 

The submission process consists of two steps.  

    * In the first step the authors are invited to express their 
      intention to participate at the conference by submitting a 
      short abstract (1/2 page, at maximum) where it is clearly 
      stated the main contribution(s) of the paper.

    * In the second step the authors should submit the full paper
      (up to 8 pages in the two-columns IEEE conference style).

Both the abstract and the full paper should be submitted electronically 
through http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=synasc2013 (for the main tracks)
and through http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=synasc2013workshops (for the 


Proposals are also invited for:

    * special sessions

Special sessions

Proposals are invited for special sessions on any topic relevant to the 
conference. Special sessions are intended to stimulate in-depth  
discussions in special areas and they are fully integrated into the 
main conference. The research papers and the informal presentations 
submitted and accepted for the special sessions follow the same rules 
as the papers submitted to the regular sessions. It is expected that 
the organizers of the special sessions appoint their own chair and 
program committee, which will be integrated in the conference program 
committee and will be supervised by the conference programme chair 
and by the general chair.
