Second Announcement

Sixth Meeting on
Barcelona, September 6-8, 2000


The main goal of this series of meetings on Computer Algebra and Applications (EACA) is to provide a forum for researchers on Computer Algebra and researchers that essentially use these techniques in their investigations. In its origin it is a Spanish forum, but it is not restricted to Spanish people. In past EACAs a considerable number of researchers from around the world did participate. EACA-2000 is the sixth EACA meeting, following events in Santander (1995), Sevilla (1996), Granada (1997), Sigüenza (1998) and Tenerife (1999). As in the previous meetings of this series, participation of young researchers is specially encouraged.


Effective methods in Algebra, Analysis, Geometry and Topology. Algorithmic complexity. Scientific computation via symbolic-numerical methods. Applications to Science and Technology. Development of symbolic-numerical software .
