Call for Papers
---------------

                       SYNASC 2015

              17th International Symposium on
   Symbolic and Numeric Algorithms for Scientific Computing
         September 21-24, 2015, Timisoara, Romania
               http://synasc.ro/2015 

Aim
---

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.

Submission
-----------

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.
