International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation
|International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation|
ISSAC, the International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation, is an academic conference in the field of computer algebra. ISSAC has been organized annually since 1988, typically in July. The conference is regularly sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery special interest group SIGSAM, and the proceedings since 1989 have been published by ACM.
The first ISSAC took place in Rome on 4–8 July 1988. It succeeded a series of meetings held between 1966 and 1987 under the names SYMSAM, SYMSAC, EUROCAL, EUROSAM and EUROCAM. The Richard D. Jenks Memorial Prize for excellence in software engineering applied to computer algebra is awarded at ISSAC every other year since 2004.
Typical topics include:
- exact linear algebra;
- polynomial system solving;
- symbolic summation;
- symbolic integration and computational differential algebra;
- computational group theory;
- symbolic-numeric algorithms;
- the design and implementation of computer algebra systems;
- applications of computer algebra.
