Second Call for Papers


SCSS 2016

The 7th International Symposium on
Symbolic Computation in Software Science

Ochanomizu University, Tokyo, Japan
March 28 - 31, 2016
Submissions to

Important Dates
November 13, 2015: Abstract submission
November 20, 2015: Paper submission
January 5, 2016: Notification
March 28-31, 2016: SCSS 2016 in Ochanomizu University, Tokyo

Invited Speakers
- Peter Paule (Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria)
- Jacques Fleuriot (University of Edinburgh, UK)

There will be tutorial lectures on symbolic computation.
- Tetsu Yamaguchi and colleagues (Maple Soft)
- Xavier Dahan (Ochanomizu University, Japan)

The purpose of SCSS 2016 is to promote research on theoretical and
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
and software analysis and verification.

SCSS 2016 solicits regular papers on all aspects of symbolic computation
their applications in software science. The topics of the symposium
but are not limited to the following:
- automated reasoning
- algorithm (program) synthesis and/or verification
- formal methods for the analysis of network and system security
- termination analysis and complexity analysis of algorithms (programs)
- extraction of specifications from algorithms (programs)
- related 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

Submission is via EasyChair:

Submissions of regular research papers are invited. Regular research papers
must not exceed 12 pages in the EasyChair LaTeX Class format
(, with up to 3 additional
for technical appendices.

The proceedings of SCSS 2016 will be published in the EasyChair
Proceedings in
Computing (EPiC).

After the symposium, we will have a combined special issue of the
Journal of
Symbolic Computation on SCSS 2014 & 2016. The full version of selected
at SCSS 2014 & 2016 will be considered for the publication of the
special issue
subjected to the normal peer review process of the journal. The submission
deadline of the special issue will be 2 months after the symposium.
