First Call for Papers

                       SYNASC 2015

              17th International Symposium on
   Symbolic and Numeric Algorithms for Scientific Computing
         September 21-24, 2015, 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 registering the title and a tentative abstract (1/2 page, at maximum) of their paper. 

    * In the second step the authors should submit the full paper.  

There are four categories of submissions:
       * Regular  papers  describing  fully  completed research results  (up to 8 pages in the two-columns paper style).
       * System descriptions and experimental papers describing implementation results of experimental data, with a link to the reported results (up to 4 pages in the two-columns paper style).
       * Short papers, describing work in  progress and/or preliminary results (up to 4 pages in the two-columns paper style).
        * Posters, describing ongoing work and research challenges of PhD students (up to 2 pages in the two-columns paper style).
Both the abstract and the full paper should be submitted electronically 
through http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=synasc2015.

Proposals are also invited for:

    * special sessions
    * satellite workshops
    * tutorials

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 program chair 
and by the general chair.


Proposals for satellite workshops are also invited. The satellite 
workshops should have topics related to SYNASC but the scientific 
program of each satellite workshop is managed by the workshop 
organizers. Authors contributing to a workshop would be required 
to register for the symposium. 


Proposals for tutorials are also invited. Tutorials provide fundamental 
exposure to topics ranging from introductory through intermediate to 
advanced. The number and the duration of the tutorials will be decided 
by the tutorial chair under the supervision of the general chair. 
Depending on the number and the quality of the proposals for tutorials, 
they may be organized as a SYNASC Autumn School.
