Final Call for Papers
--------------------------

                       SYNASC 2017

              19th International Symposium on
     Symbolic and Numeric Algorithms for Scientific Computing
           September 21-24, 2017, Timisoara, Romania
               http://synasc.ro/2017

           In honor of the anniversaries of
                  Stefan Maruster  (80)
                  Bruno Buchberger (75)
                  Tetsuo Ida (70)

SYNASC aims to stimulate the interaction between the two scientific communities 
of symbolic and numeric computing and to exhibit interesting applications of 
the areas both in theory and in practice. The choice of the topic is motivated 
by the belief of the organizers that the dialogue between the two communities 
is very necessary for accelerating the progress in making the computer a truly 
intelligent aid for mathematicians and engineers.
