Fifth International Workshop on

Computer Algebra Systems and Their Applications, CASA'2007

Beijing, China, May 27-30 2007

Paper submission

The Workshop offers prospective authors to submit full papers electronically. In case you have doubts about the relevance and/or appropriateness of your paper for this workshop, please send an e-mail to Andres Iglesias:

Your paper must be submitted by using the ICCS'2007 upload engine available at:

Note that the engine has been designed for all ICCS workshops, including the general track. So, you are kindly requested to indicate to which workshop you wish to submit your paper. In this case, just select: "Computer Algebra Systems and their Applications, CASA'2007". You will be given a URL for your paper by e-mail, so that you can upload it at your best convenience. Please, be careful when filling the information fields about yourself, including your e-mail. Otherwise, it might happen that the reply e-mail containing such a URL never reach your e-mail account.

All submissions must be written in English. Acceptable formats are pdf and postscript (use extension .pdf or .ps, respectively). Please, check that you have included all the fonts required when generating the .pdf files, so that your paper can be read properly on any platform. Exceptionally (and only for your initial submission), we can accept papers written in Microsoft Word. However, keep in mind that the final version of your paper should be, in general, written in LaTeX (either LaTeX 2.09 or 2e) according to the rules of LNCS and should not exceed eight pages.

In addition to submitting your paper through the submission engine, you can send (by e-mail to Andres Iglesias) a list of two or three possible referees for your paper, explaining why do you propose them. However, there is not guarantee that your paper will be reviewed by some of the proposed reviewers. This list is intended to assure that the review process is performed at due time. Therefore, it will be used only if we are unable to find other reviewers for your paper.

After receiving your submission, the paper will be reviewed taking into account:

and acceptance/rejection will be based on this review. If a paper is rejected you will be contacted and given the referee reports. It may well be that your paper is more suited to be submitted to another workshop or conference.

Decision on acceptance will be performed in two steps: based on the referee reports, an unofficial (conditional) acceptance from the workshop programme committee will be proposed. This acceptance must be subsequently confirmed by the ICCS'2007 organizers and then notified to the authors.

The accepted full papers will be published by Springer-Verlag, Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series and will be available for the delegates in printed/electronic form. In addition, they will be scheduled for oral presentation. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper.

Papers should be a maximum of 8 pages A4, formatted using the LNCS guidelines. The style files for the LNCS can be found at the following URL:
