Call for Papers


Special Issues on Polynomial System Solving, System and Control, and Software Science

Guest Editor: Hirokazu Anai

Following the very successful 3rd International Conference on Mathematical Aspects of Computer and Information Sciences (MACIS 2009) in Fukuoka, Japan, on December 14-17, 2009, which was held jointly with the 9th Asian Symposium on Computer Mathematics (ASCM 2009), we invite submissions to special issues of Mathematics in Computer Science, a new journal launched by Birkhäuser/Springer. High-quality original research papers, in particular those that substantially extend ideas and topics presented at MACIS 2009, are solicited.

Topics of interest include

(1) Polynomial System Solving (Complex/Real/Rational),
(2) System and Control (Control theory/Bio-inspired system),
(3) Software Science (Synthesis/Language/Framework).


The topics of the special issues are covered by those of MACIS 2009. Potential contributors may contact the guest editor to discuss the suitability of topics and papers.
