CASC 2018 · Sept. 17-21 · Lille, France

Conference Information

Call for Papers

The 20th International Workshop in Computer Algebra in Scientific Computing, CASC 2018, will be held in the city of Lille, France, Sept. 17-21, 2018. Scientific computing plays an important role in the natural sciences and engineering disciplines. Significance and impact of computer algebra methods and systems for scientific computing have increased considerably over the last decade. Nowadays, computer algebra systems such as CoCoA, Macaulay, Magma, Maple, Mathematica, Maxima, Reduce, Sage, Singular, and others enable their users to exploit their powerful facilities in symbolic manipulation, numerical computation, and visualization.

The ongoing development of computer algebra systems, including their integration and adaptation to modern software environments, puts them to the forefront of scientific computing and enables the practical solution of many complex applied problems in the domains of natural sciences and engineering. The topics addressed in the workshop cover all the basic areas of scientific computing as they benefit from the application of computer algebra methods and software:

  • exact and approximate computation,
  • numerical simulation using computer algebra systems,
  • parallel symbolic-numeric computation,
  • symbolic-numeric methods for differential, differential-algebraic and difference equations,
  • symbolic-numeric methods for polynomial equations and inequalities,
  • algorithms and complexity in computer algebra,
  • automated reasoning in algebra and geometry,
  • algebraic methods in geometric modeling,
  • application of computer algebra to natural sciences and engineering,
  • problem-solving environments,
  • internet accessible symbolic and numeric computation.

Information for Authors

Please upload your submission using the electronic submission system which will be open soon. The total length of the paper should not exceed 15 pages. Springer's LNCS style package for Latex2e should be used; further packages can be obtained from Springer Online.
