Conference: July 23–27, 2021

Conference Topics

The ACA conference series is devoted to promoting all aspects of computer algebra applications, encouraging the interaction of developers of computer algebra systems with researchers and users (including scientists, engineers, educators, mathematicians and practitioners). Topics include, but are not limited to, computer algebra in the sciences, engineering, medicine, pure and applied mathematics, cryptology, education, and computer science.

The 26th International Conference on Applications of Computer Algebra will be held in a virtual setting during July 23-27, 2021.

Call for Sessions

The ACA conferences are organized as a series of Special Sessions. All interested session organizers can propose a Special Session by sending an e-mail to the ACA 2021 Organizing Committee (General Chairs: Ilias Kotsireas at ikotsire@wlu.ca and Michael Wester at wester@math.unm.edu, Program Chair: Dimitris Simos, dsimos@sba-research.org). The ACA Working Group will then decide on the acceptance of the proposed session. All accepted sessions will be immediately announced on the conference website.

Session organizers are expected to prepare webpages to host the information regarding their special sessions. Links to the special session webpages will be provided on the ACA 2021 webpage.

A proposal for an ACA 2021 Special Session has to include:

(1) title of the Special Session,
