Scope

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

Submission

Submissions of regular research papers are invited. Regular research papers must not exceed 12 pages in the EasyChair LaTeX Class format (www.easychair.org/publications/easychair.zip), 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 https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=scss2017


Publication

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 symposium.
