Call for Papers

SCSS 2017
The 8th International Symposium on
Symbolic Computation in Software Science
April 6-9, 2017 in Gammarth, Tunisia.

The purpose of SCSS 2017 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
verification. SCSS 2017 solicits regular 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 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

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
pages for technical appendices. Student's abstracts must be no longer
than 4 pages in the same format and mention the category "student
paper". There will be a Best Paper Award, sponsored by ATSN: the
Tunisian Society for Digital Security. All submissions must be done via
Easychair on the website page

The proceedings of SCSS 2017 will be published in the EasyChair
Proceedings in Computing (EPiC). After the symposium, we will have a
special issue of the Journal of Symbolic Computation. The full version
of selected papers 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
