First Call for Papers

                          SCSS 2013
           Symbolic Computation in Software Science
                  5th International Symposium

         Castle of Hagenberg, Austria, July 5-6, 2013
       Research Institute for Symbolic Computation (RISC)
               Johannes Kepler University Linz

The purpose of SCSS 2013 is to promote research on theoretical and
practical aspects of symbolic computation in software science. The
symposium provides a forum for active dialog between researchers from
several fields of computer algebra, algebraic geometry, algorithmic
combinatorics, computational logic, and software analysis and

SCSS 2013 solicits both regular and tool papers on all aspects of
symbolic computation and their applications in software science. 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 analysis and complexity analysis of algorithms (programs)
- extraction of specifications from algorithms (programs)
- theorem proving methods and techniques
- proof carrying code
- generation of inductive assertion for algorithm (programs)
- algorithm (program) transformations
- formalization and computerization of knowledge (maths, medicine, 
economy, etc.)
- component-based programming
- computational origami
- query languages (in particular for XML documents)
- semantic web and cloud computing

Important Dates
April 30, 2013: Abstract submission deadline
May 3, 2013: Paper submission deadline
June 3, 2013: Notification of acceptance
June 17, 2013: Camera-ready copy deadline
July 5-6, 2013: SCSS 2013, Castle of Hagenberg, Austria

Submission is via EasyChair:


Submissions are invited in two categories: regular research papers and
tool papers.

- Regular research papers must not exceed 12 pages in the EasyChair
Class format, with up to 3 additional pages for technical appendices.
- Tool papers must not exceed 6 pages in the EasyChair Class format.

The proceedings of SCSS 2013 will be published as a RISC technical
report. After the symposium, authors of accepted papers at SCSS 2013
will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper to the
special issue of the Journal of Symbolic Computation on SCSS. Submitted
papers to the JSC special issue will undergo an additional reviewing.
