This will be the 5th IMACS-ACA. Previous ones have taken place in Albuquerque, New Mexico (USA) 1995; Linz (Austria) 1996; Wailea, Maui, Hawaii (USA) 1997 and Prague (Czech Republic) 1998. The evolution of the number of talks and attendees indicate a rapidly increasing interest in this particular conference.
Probably the two most important conferences about Computer Algebra nowadays are the much older ISSAC and IMACS-ACA. IMACS-ACA is getting nearly as many attendees as ISSAC. Moreover, as far as we know, IMACS-ACA is the only conference in the world specifically devoted to applications of this field.
In previous years organizations and companies as important as the America National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Security Agency (NSA), Czech Ministry of Education, Texas Instruments, Wolfram Research... have sponsored this conference.
