SYNASC 2021

23th International Symposium on Symbolic and Numeric Algorithms for Scientific Computing

============================================================
Second Call for PapersSYNASC 202123th International Symposium on
Symbolic and Numeric Algorithms for Scientific Computing
December 7-10, 2021, Timisoara, Romania
http://synasc.ro/2021
============================================================
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, SYNASC 2021 will be organized as a hybrid event.
Note that if the general health situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic does not allow for an in-presence event, the symposium will still be held in a remote mode.=== Aim ===SYNASC aims to stimulate the interaction among multiple communities focusing on defining,
optimizing and executing complex algorithms in several application areas. The focus of the
conference then ranges from symbolic and numeric computation to formal methods applied to programming, artificial intelligence, distributed computing and computing theory. The interplay between these areas, in fact, is essential in the current scenario where economy and society demand for the development of complex, data intensive, trustable and high performant computational systems.In this context we invite for:
* research paper submissions
* special session proposals
* satellite workshop proposals
* tutorial proposals

=== Important Dates ===

30 April 2021 :
Proposals for workshops, special sessions, tutorials
31 July 2021 : Paper submission for main tracks
30 September 2021 : Notification of acceptance
15 October 2021 : Registration
