                        ISSAC 2021

 International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation
                        July 18-22 2021
                    Saint Petersburg, Russia

                     FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS



The International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation is
the premier conference for research in symbolic computation and
computer algebra. ISSAC 2021 will be the 46th meeting in the series,
which started in 1966 and has been held annually since 1981. The
conference presents a range of invited talks, tutorials, poster
sessions, software demonstrations and vendor exhibits with a
centerpiece of contributed research papers.

ISSAC 2021 will be held on 18-22 July 2021 at St. Petersburg
Department of V.A. Steklov Mathematical Institute (PDMI RAS), Saint
Petersburg, Russia. Workshops will be held on July 18th and tutorial
sessions will be held on July 19th 2021.

Important Note Concerning the COVID-19 Pandemic

The current situation makes it unclear whether ISSAC 2021 can be held
in person. Should it need to be held as a virtual conference, we would
strive to maintain all aspects of the program, possibly on a slightly
expanded period of time to better accommodate attendance from
different time zones.

Important Dates

(The abstract and paper submission deadlines are solid deadlines.)
Abstract submission: January 29, 2021, 23:59 (anywhere on Earth)
Paper submission: February 5, 2021, 23:59 (anywhere on Earth)
First notification of acceptance/rejection: April 20, 2021
End of rebuttal phase: May 4, 2021
Final notification after rebuttal phase: May 11, 2021
Camera-ready copy due: May 18, 2021

Submission Instructions

ISSAC 2021 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.

Papers must be in English and should not exceed 8 pages in the ACM
sig-alternate.cls style, found at

Submissions in other article styles are also accepted, but the revised
version after rebuttal phase must be at most 8 pages when compiled in
sig-alternate.cls style (equivalent to about 17 pages of letter size
paper, typeset in 12pt with normal spacing and reasonably large
margins). Extended abstracts are not allowed. At least one author of
each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the

Submission is via EasyChair, at the web site


All areas of computer algebra and symbolic mathematical computation
are of interest. These include, but are not limited to:

Algorithmic aspects:

* Exact and symbolic linear, polynomial and differential algebra
* Symbolic-numeric, homotopy, perturbation and series methods
* Computational algebraic geometry, group theory and number theory
* Computer arithmetic
* Summation, recurrence equations, integration, solution of ODEs & PDEs
* Symbolic methods in other areas of pure and applied mathematics
* Complexity of algebraic algorithms and algebraic complexity

Software aspects:

* Design of symbolic computation packages and systems
* Language design and type systems for symbolic computation
* Data representation
* Considerations for modern hardware
* Algorithm implementation and performance tuning
* Mathematical user interfaces

Application aspects:

* Applications that stretch the current limits of computer algebra
  algorithms or systems, use computer algebra in new areas or new
  ways, or apply it in situations with broad impact.
