                        ISSAC 2021

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




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.

Preceding the ISSAC 2021 main conference, workshops will be held on
Sunday July 18th. We invite researchers interested in chairing one of
these workshops to submit proposals. Workshop organizers will have
several responsibilities, including coordinating workshop
participation and content, publicizing and providing the program in a
timely manner and moderating the program throughout the workshop.

The goal of the workshops is to provide an informal forum for
researchers to discuss emerging research questions and challenges.
Workshops will last half a day or a full day, with morning and
afternoon sessions and free time between the sessions for individual

The workshops can be on any subject relevant to an appreciable
fraction of the ISSAC community. Schedules should encourage lively
debates, and topics should lean more towards exploring new ideas, open
problems, and interdisciplinary areas, compared with the main

The organizers of accepted workshops will be responsible for their own
reviewing process (if any) and proceedings production (if any).
Concerning publicity (sending calls for contributions, if any) and
registration (mandatory), the workshop organizers will be helped by
the ISSAC 2021 Publicity Chair and Local Arrangements Committee.

The organizers will also be required to closely cooperate with the
ISSAC 2021 General Chair, Local Arrangements Chair, and Publicity
Chair to finalize all organizational details.

Workshop attendees must register for the workshop as well as for the
main conference days.

Workshop proposals should be received by the General Chair no later
than November 15, 2020. The General Chair and Local Arrangements Chair
will run a light selection process to ensure relevance of the
workshops to ISSAC.

Proposals should clearly specify the following:
- A workshop title
- A brief description of the topics to be covered, and an explanation
  as to why the workshop will appeal to ISSAC audiences
- A rough description of the wanted workshop format, including the
  planned number and duration of talks
- A list of organizers with email addresses


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.
