SYNASC 2010

12th International Symposium on
Symbolic and Numeric Algorithms for Scientific Computing
September 23-26, 2010, Timisoara, Romania
http://synasc10.info.uvt.ro/

 

Aim

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

Venue

The city of Timisoara hosts several prestigious academic institutions (the West University, the "Politehnica" University, the University of Medicine, and others). The city and the surrounding region have an unique history in Romania, being over the centuries an object of dispute for several states (Roman, Hungarian, Ottoman, Austrian), which left their still visible marks, and, above all, a very multicultural society which constitutes a beautiful example of harmony in Romania and in the Balkans (30 Km from Serbia). The openness of mind of its inhabitants is probably one of the reasons for starting the anti-Communist movement in Romania and for being now one of the economically most advanced locations in the country.
