This session will focus on new software developments (packages, notebooks, worksheets, libraries, etc.) carried out on any computer algebra package and introducing innovative solutions to mathematical and scientific problems. Thus, we accept papers describing research on actual or possible applications of these systems to any scientific field (Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, Computer Science, Education, Industry, etc.).

In addition to their
powerful symbolic manipulation capabilities, the computer algebra
packages also provide the
users with a large number of appealing features, such as
arbitrary-precision calculations, a fully integrated framework for
numerical/symbolic computation, nice visualization tools and graphical
user interfaces (GUIs), reliable and fast communication tools and
protocols, the possibility of running remote kernels and performing
calculations on the Web, etc. Papers exploring any of those issues to
solve complex problems as well as papers describing strategies to
combine them with other programs and/or packages are also welcome.

Finally, papers identifying new directions of research, presenting new software systems or discussing the potential and real advantages and shortcomings of these computer algebra packages for mathematical software will also be considered.

The topics to be addressed include (but are not
limited to):

- computer algebra applications to Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry,
Engineering, Biology, Computer Science, Social Sciences, Arts,
Entertainment,
Architecture, etc.

- symbolic-numerical computations using computer algebra systems
- computer algebra packages, remote kernels and Internet
- industrial applications of computer algebra
- problem-solving environments
- symbolic-numeric interfaces and computations

- computer algebra packages in Education

- computer algebra based simulations
- new computer algebra developments (packages, notebooks, woksheets, libraries, etc.)
- computer algebra communication protocols and tools
- graphical user interfaces for computer algebra packages
- web services for computer algebra packages
