[DMANET] Last CfP: SCSS 2021

SCSS 2021
The 9th International Symposium on Symbolic Computation in Software Science
-- In the era of Computational and Artificial Intelligence --

September 8--10, 2021, virtual

Organized by RISC, Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria

Symbolic Computation is the science of computing with symbolic objects
(terms, formulae, programs, representations of algebraic objects, etc.).
Powerful algorithms have been developed during the past decades for the
major subareas of symbolic computation: computer algebra and
computational logic. These algorithms and methods are successfully
applied in various fields, including software science, which covers a
broad range of topics about software construction and analysis.

Meanwhile, artificial intelligence methods and machine learning
algorithms are widely used nowadays in various domains and, in
particular, combined with symbolic computation. Several approaches mix
artificial intelligence and symbolic methods and tools deployed over
large corpora to create what is known as cognitive systems. Cognitive
computing focuses on building systems that interact with humans
naturally by reasoning, aiming at learning at scale.

The purpose of SCSS 2021 is to promote research on theoretical and
practical aspects of symbolic computation in software science, combined
with modern artificial intelligence techniques.

SCSS 2021 solicits submissions on all aspects of symbolic computation
and their applications in software science, in combination with
artificial intelligence and cognitive computing techniques. The topics
of the symposium include, but are not limited to the following:

- automated reasoning, knowledge reasoning, common-sense reasoning and
reasoning in science
- algorithm (program) synthesis and/or verification, alignment and joint
processing of formal, semi-formal, and informal libraries.
- formal methods for the analysis of network and system security
- termination analysis and complexity analysis of algorithms (programs)
- extraction of specifications from algorithms (programs)
- theorem proving methods and techniques, collaboration between
automated and interactive theorem proving
- proof carrying code
- generation of inductive assertion for algorithm (programs)
- algorithm (program) transformations
- combinations of linguistic/learning-based and semantic/reasoning methods
- formalization and computerization of knowledge (maths, medicine,
economy, etc.)
- methods for large-scale computer understanding of mathematics and science
- artificial intelligence, machine learning and big-data methods in
theorem proving and mathematics
- formal verification of artificial intelligence and machine learning
algorithms, explainable artificial intelligence, symbolic artificial
- cognitive computing, cognitive vision, perception systems and
artificial reasoners for robotics
- component-based programming
- computational origami
- query languages (in particular for XML documents)
- semantic web and cloud computing

Submission is via EasyChair:

Original submissions are invited in two categories: regular research
papers and tool papers. We recommend using the EPTCS Class format to
prepare manuscripts. Regular research papers must not exceed 12 pages
with up to 3 additional pages for technical appendices. Tool papers must
not exceed 6 pages. They should include information about a URL from
where the tool can be downloaded or accessed on-line.

The proceedings of SCSS 2021 will be published in the Electronic
Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS).

A special issue of Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence
(AMAI) will be organized after the symposium. Submitted full-length
papers will be refereed according to the usual standards of the journal.
