Aim:


SYNASC aims to stimulate the interaction between the two scientific communities of symbolic and numeric computing, with the purpose of exhibiting interesting applications of these areas both in theory and in practice. The choice of this topic is motivated by the belief of the organizers that the dialogue between the two communities is very necessary in order to make significant progress in making the computer a truly intelligent aid for mathematicians and engineers.




Topics of interests:



  • symbolic techniques applied to numerics;


  • numerics and symbolics for geometry;


  • automated reasoning;


  • computer algebra;


  • solving systems of nonlinear equations;


  • parallel, distributed and web computing for symbolics and numerics;


  • formal system verification;


  • software quality assesment;


  • programming with constraints, narrowing;


  • artificial intelligence in numeric solving;


  • multi-agent systems for complex problem solving;


  • scientific visualization and image processing;


  • grid middleware and applications;


  • workflow management;


  • soft computing;


  • data mining.


This list is not intended to be exhaustive. We invite submissions in the form of:



  • full research papers,


  • short papers (work in progress),


  • system descriptions and software demonstrations.






Proposals for workshops or technical sessions are also invited.




Publication:

Revised versions of papers presented at SYNASC'08 will be published in post-proceedings edited by IEEE Computer Society Press.

Submission:

Papers of up to 8 pages (IEEE conference style), must be submitted electronically through http://synasc08.info.uvt.ro/CRP (available after April 1).

Extended abstracts (up to 4 pages) may be submitted for short papers and system presentations.

Proposals for workshops and special technical sessions are also invited. Such workshops and special sessions should have a focus and topic content that relates to the SYNASC08 topics. Workshops and sessions should have a minimum of five papers. Please send a short description (100-200 words) of the proposed workshop or technical session. The description should contain the scope, focus and/or intended content. The proposal should also list the submission procedures, program/review committee members and submission dates (these should be in concordance with the SYNASC08 deadline for final paper submission).

Workshop proposal: 15 April 2008


Papers submission: 15 May 2008


Notification of acceptance: 15 July 2008


Final paper and registration: 1 September 2008


Symposium period: 26-29 September 2008

Venue:


The city of Timisoara hosts several prestigious academic institutions (the West University, the "Politehnica" University, the University of Medicine, and others). The city and the surrounding region have an unique history in Romania, being over the centuries an object of dispute for several states (Roman, Hungarian, Ottoman, Austrian), which left their still visible marks, and, above all, a very multicultural society which constitutes a beautiful example of harmony in Romania and in the Balkans (30 Km from Serbia). The openness of mind of its inhabitants is probably one of the reasons for starting the anti-Communist movement in Romania and for being now one of the economically most advanced locations in the country.
