Announcement and Call for Papers 
The
9th International Workshop in Computer Algebra in Scientific
Computing, CASC 2006, will be held in the city of September 1115, 2006. The methods of Scientific Computing play an important role in research and engineering applications in the natural and the engineering sciences. The significance and impact of computer algebra methods and computer algebra systems for scientific computing has increased considerably in recent times. Nowadays, such generalpurpose computer algebra systems as Maple, Magma, Mathematica, MuPAD, Singular, to solve the following three important tasks within a uniform framework: (a) symbolic manipulation (b) numerical computation (c) visualization The ongoing development of such systems, including their integration and adaptation to modern software environments, puts them to the forefront in scientific computing and enables the practical solution of many complex applied problems in the domains of natural sciences and engineering. The topics addressed in the workshop cover all the basic areas of scientific computing as they benefit from the application of computer algebra methods and software: 1. exact and approximate computation 2. numerical simulation using computer algebra systems 3. parallel symbolicnumeric computation 4. problemsolving environments 5. Internet accessible symbolic and numeric computation 6. symbolicnumeric methods for differential, differentialalgebraic, and difference equations 7. algebraic methods in geometric modeling 8. algebraic methods for nonlinear polynomial equations and inequalities 9. symbolic and numerical computation in systems engineering and modeling 10. algorithmic and complexity considerations in computer algebra 11. computer algebra in industry 12. computer algebra in nanotechnology 13. solving problems in the natural sciences 14. automatic reasoning in algebra and geometry The workshop is intended to provide a forum for researchers and engineers in the fields of mathematics, computer science, numerical analysis, and industry, to interact and exchange ideas. An important goal of the workshop is to bring together all these specialists for the purpose of fostering progress on current questions and problems in advanced scientific computing.
