SCSS 2012 CFP Extended deadline!


International Symposium on Symbolic Computation in Software Science,
December 15-17 2012
Gammarth, Tunisia

Symbolic computation is the science of computing with symbolic objects
(terms, formulae, programs, algebraic objects, geometrical objects,
etc). Powerful symbolic algorithms have been developed during the past
decades and have played an influential role in theorem proving,
automated reasoning, software verification, model checking, rewriting,
formalisation of mathematics, network security, Groebner bases,
characteristic sets, etc.

The international Symposium on "Symbolic Computation in Software
Science" is the fourth in the SCSS workshop series. SCSS 2008 and
2010took place at the Research Institute for Symbolic Computation
(RISC), Hagenberg, Austria, and, SCSS 2009 took place in Gammarth,
Tunisia. These symposium grew out of internal workshops that bring
together researchers from SCORE (Symbolic Computation Research Group)
at the University of Tsukuba, Japan, Theorema Group at the Research
Institute for Symbolic Computation, Johannes Kepler University Linz,
Austria, SSFG (Software Science Foundation Group) at Kyoto University,
Japan, and Sup'Com (Higher School of Communication of Tunis) at the
University of Carthage, Tunisia.  These workshops have been successful
and in this new edition, we would like to extend the range of symbolic
computation methods in their applications.

In this symposium, we solicit papers on all aspects of
symbolic computations and their applications. The topics of the
symposium include, but are not limited to the following:

*automated reasoning
*algorithm (program) synthesis and/or verification
*formal methods for the analysis of network security
*termination and/or complexity analysis of algorithms/programs
*extraction of specifications from algorithms
*theorem proving methods and techniques
*proof-carrying code
*generation of inductive assertion for algorithm (programs)
*algorithm (program) transformations
*formalisation and computerisation of knowledge (maths, medicine,
 economy, etc.)
*component-based programming
*computational origami
*query languages (in particular for XML documents)
*semantic web and cloud computing

 SCSS 2012 will provide an opportunity for developers of software
 related to symbolic computation, to promote their software
 systems. SCSS 2012 will have a special session for software systems
 descriptions where authors can present their projects and demonstrate
 their software. Submission in this category of software demo should
 have a link to project pages and ideally a downloadable software.

Submissions for full papers must not exceed 10 pages (in font 10 or
higher), with up to 5 additional pages for references and technical
appendices. Shorter papers, associated with system descriptions are
welcome. The paper's main results must not be published or submitted
for publication in refereed venues, including journals and other
scientific meetings. It is expected that each accepted paper be
presented at the meeting by one of its authors.

Papers will be reviewed and evaluated with respect to relevance,
clarity, quality, originality, and impact. Proposed contributions
should be in English, and consist of a scholarly exposition accessible
to the non-specialist, including motivation, background, and
comparison with related works. All papers should be prepared in LaTeX
and formatted according to the requirements of Springer's LNCS series
(the corresponding style files can be downloaded from
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html). Papers must be
submitted electronically at the relevant area for SCSS12 on easyChair.

A title and single-paragraph abstract should be submitted by June 15,
and the full paper by June 21 (firm date). Notifications are expected
by September 1, and final papers for the proceedings will be due by
October 1 (firm date).

The proceedings of SCSS 2012, will be published in advance of the
meeting as a volume in either Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer
Science (ENTCS) or the British Computer Society's Electronic Workshops
in Computing eWIC. After the Symposium, authors will be invited to
submit a full version of their article for a special issue of the
Journal of Symbolic Computation on SCSS 2012. These articles will be
subjected to the normal peer review process of the Journal of Symbolic
