Call for Posters
ISSAC, the International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic
Computation is an annual gathering of the Symbolic Mathematical
Computation community. ISSAC 2004 is scheduled for July 47, 2004
at the University of Cantabria, Santander, Spain. The Program
Committee received over 130 research paper submissions. ISSAC 2004 is
expected to be very well attended.
Planned conference activities include invited presentations, research
and survey papers, poster sessions, tutorial courses, vendor exhibits,
and software demonstrations. Proceedings, as well as abstracts of all
posters, will be distributed at the conference.
The Poster Sessions are an ideal venue for presenting recent research
results or ongoing research projects that might not yet be complete,
but whose preliminary results are already interesting nonetheless.
Especially welcome are posters describing implementations of
algorithms, computer algebra systems, and applications in education,
science and industry.
To encourage poster submissions of good quality, a best poster prize,
consisting of a certificate, will be awarded. Posters will be judged
based on content and presentation.
Important Dates
Deadline for Abstract Submission:

May 10, 2004

Notification of Acceptance:

May 28, 2004

Submission Guidelines
Authors are invited to submit electronically an abstract of no more
than 900 words to
Ziming Li (zmli @ mmrc.iss.ac.cn) 
describing the contents of the poster. Plain TeX or LaTeX is
preferred, but plain text is also acceptable.
Abstracts of final versions of accepted posters will be distributed at
the conference, and appear in the Bulletin of the Special Interest
Group on Symbolic & Algebraic Manipulation (SIGSAM), ACM. All
accepted posters will be archived for public download at the web site
of SIGSAM.
Topics
Topics of the meeting include, but are not limited to:

Algorithmic mathematics

Algebraic, symbolic and symbolicnumeric algorithms.
Simplification, function manipulation, equations, summation,
integration, ODE/PDE, linear algebra, number theory, group
and geometric computing.

Computer Science

Theoretical and practical problems in symbolic
computation. Systems, problem solving environments, user
interfaces, software, libraries, parallel/distributed
computing and programming languages for symbolic
computation, concrete analysis, benchmarking, theoretical
and practical complexity of computer algebra algorithms,
automatic differentiation, code generation, mathematical
data structures and exchange protocols.

Applications

Problem treatments using algebraic, symbolic or
symbolicnumeric computation in an essential or a novel
way. Engineering, economics and finance, physical and biological
sciences, computer science, logic, mathematics, statistics,
education.
Instructions for Poster Authors
Authors should prepare posters that fit A0 size, i.e.
a maximum of 33 inches (84 cm) wide by 46 inches (117 cm) high,
or 46 inches (117 cm) wide by 33 inches (84 cm) high.
Posters will be pinned onto display boards at the conference site,
so please make sure that the material used is not too hard or too
thick for the pins.
Authors of posters should strive to make their posters viewerfriendly,
in particular avoiding the dense typesetting typical of journal articles.
To ensure that the posters are of high quality, we strongly recommend
the use of posterpreparation tools such as
