PASCO 2018

Vancouver, Canada, May 25, 2018.

The 9th International Workshop on Parallel Symbolic Computation (PASCO) is the latest instance in a series of workshops dedicated to the promotion and advancement of parallel algorithms and software in all areas of symbolic mathematical computation.

PASCO 2018 will be held in conjunction with the IEEE International Parallel & Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS).

PASCO will be run as a satellite workshop immediately following IPDPS.  The collocation of PASCO and IPDPS provides the opportunity for computer algebra researchers interested in parallel computing to participate in one of the main parallel computing conferences and for attendees of IPDPS to be exposed to problems in symbolic computation.

Topics of Interest

Specific topics include, but are not limited to:

Paper Submission

The conference invites submissions presenting original research.  Submissions in the form of extended abstracts (2-4 pages) single-spaced double-column pages using 10-point size font on 8.5x11 inch pages (IEEE conference style), including figures, tables, and references.  The submitted manuscripts should include author names and
affiliations. See style templates for details:

Papers are exclusively submitted via easy chair at

Papers must be written in English.  Papers must contain original research and may not duplicate work published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Papers will be reviewed by the Program Committee and external referees.

Authors of selected abstracts will be invited to extend their submission to full paper (upto 10 pages).  All accepted papers will be distributed at PASCO 2018 and includedin the IPDPS proceedings.  At least one author of each accepted paper must attend PASCO 2018 to present his or her paper.

Important Dates

Since PASCO will run as a one day workshop there is limited room for papers/presentations.  Paper selection will be based on a
two page extended abstract with quick turn around.  Selected papers may be extended to full length.
