Conference Place

The conference will take place from 19 to 24 September 2011 at the LIX Laboratory of Ecole Polytechnique, Palaiseau, 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, Axiom, Singular 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@LiX 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 software demos and talks which provide some of the scientific background. Most talks are intended to be introductary and suitable for non experts in the specific areas.
