SYNASC 2014 will be held in Timisoara during 22-25 September,
just after ICTAC 2014 in Bucharest, 17-20 September.

First Call for Papers

                        SYNASC 2014
               16th International Symposium on
    Symbolic and Numeric Algorithms for Scientific Computing
          September 22-25, 2014, 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 submitting a
       short abstract (1/2 page, at maximum) where it is clearly
       stated the main contribution(s) of the paper.

     * In the second step the authors should submit the full paper
       (up to 8 pages in the two-columns IEEE conference style).

Both the abstract and the full paper should be submitted electronically
through http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=synasc2014.

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.
