Second Announcement of Special Issue - ISSAC 2015


Following the 40th International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic

Computation (ISSAC’15) which was held at The University of Bath, UK,

between July 6-9, 2015, we invite submissions to a special issue 

of the Journal of  Symbolic Computation


We solicit high-quality original research papers with journal-style

extent of contribution. The main focus of this special issue will be

on work (papers, tutorials, plenary talks, posters and softwares)

presented at ISSAC’15, but this call is open to further submissions

close to presentations at ISSAC'15.

Potential contributors may contact the guest editors to discuss the

suitability of topics and papers, by sending an email to

issac2015specialissue at gmail.com

- Notification of acceptance/rejection:  April, 2016.

- Publication of special issue:          Fall 2016.

*Submission Guidelines:*


You are recommended to use the Elsevier article class *elsarticle.cls*

(http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/elsarticle) to

prepare your manuscript and BibTeX (http://www.bibtex.org) to generate 

your bibliography.

All submitted papers will be refereed according to the usual JSC

refereeing process. Submission is via EasyChair, at the website


- The introduction of the paper must explicitly address the following

   questions in succinct and informal manner:

      - What is the problem?

      - Why is the problem important?

      - What has been done so far on the problem?

      - What is the main contribution of the paper on the problem?

      - Why is the contribution original? (see below for clarification)

      - Why is the contribution non-trivial?

      - How is the journal paper different from the conference paper.

- Make it complete (since there is no page limit).

      - All the related works and issues must be completely and

        carefully discussed.

      - All the previous relevant JSC papers must be properly cited

        and discussed.

      - All the theorem must be rigorously proved (no sketch allowed).

      - All the important definitions/theorems/algorithms must be

        illustrated by well chosen examples.

- Address all the feedback from the conference's referee process and Q/A.



The results, already published in the conference paper will be still

counted as an original result for JSC refereeing process.



Incorporating additional results, especially inspired by

the ISSAC reviews or by discussions during the conference

is welcome and encouraged.



Inquiries should be sent to issac2015specialissue at gmail.com

Sincerely yours,

Steve Linton (ISSAC 2015 General Chair)

Kazuhiro Yokoyama (ISSAC 2015 Program Chair)
