Registrations are closed.
The workshop will take place the 26 and 27 July 2012
as a satellite conference of ISSAC 2012 at the University
of Grenoble in France.
Scope of the conference
Nowadays, two kinds of mathematical computation systems have met a
great success. Historically, we find numerical computation systems,
such as Matlab, Octave or Scilab. These systems allow for the approximate resolution of
analytic problems, such as the integration of differential equations.
On the other hand, we find symbolic computation systems, such as Mathematica, Maple,
or more recently Sage.
In the MaGiX project, we intend to transpose the
computer algebra spirit of exact mathematical computations to analytic
problems. In order to achieve this goal, techniques from various areas
need to be combined. Besides computer algebra and reliable
computation, we also need an adequate mathematical programming
language which is sufficiently efficient for numerical computations.
Since the ultimate goal is to develop a user friendly and general
purpose system for algebraic and analytic computations, nice user
interfaces are also an important issue.
The MaGiX@ISSAC conference therefore aims to
bring together developers and users of mathematical software in the
areas of computer algebra, reliable numeric computation, user
interfaces and mathematical programming languages. The conference
consists of a mixture of talks, software demonstrations, round tables,
and programming sessions.

The local organization is ensured by the Local Arrangements
committee of ISSAC 2012.
