Invited Speakers


ECCAD 2013 is free to attend, but we request that all attendees (even local ones) please register as soon as possible so that we can arrange refreshments and facilities. You can easily change your registration later so there is really no risk - do it now! To register, please fill out this form.

Posters and Software Demonstrations

Proposals are invited for poster presentations and software demonstrations on any topic related to computer algebra. Abstracts can be submitted through the registration form. Abstracts received by April 20 will appear in the workshop program.

Travel Support

The Office of Naval Research has generously provided funds to help offset travel expenses for students and post-docs that present a poster or software demonstration. If you are interested, please check the appropriate box on the poster abstract submission page. Submit an abstract (even if it's just preliminary) by April 8 April 20 for full consideration.

We (the organizers) fully expect ECCAD 2013 to happen. However, due to new Department of Defense regulations, we had to re-submit our already-approved event plan to get it approved a second time, and this second request is still being processed. This does not relate to the current budget crisis, and we do not anticipate any trouble, but nonetheless are required to inform you that the official status is still pending approval. ECCAD is on! The organizers are not responsible for any travel commitments or other expenditures you make in relation to this workshop, even in the event of cancellation.
