This special issue of the JSC will be devoted to Applications of Computer Algebra. It is meant primarily to contain papers presented at the ACA'2001 conference held in Albuquerque, New Mexico and at the ACA'2002 conference held in Volos, Greece. Nevertheless the special issue is open to submission of papers from other authors as well, following the regular JSC submission procedures.

Computer Algebra has found applications in many domains of science such as mathematics, computer science, computational biology, etc. The object of this special issue is to compile state-of-the-art research on actual or possible applications of nontrivial computer algebra techniques to other fields and substantial interactions of computer algebra with other fields.

Contributions should discuss the application of computer algebra methods for tackling/solving applied problems. Appropriate papers must contain an algorithmic aspect with symbolic computation in order to adhere to the scope of the journal. Possible topics of applications, within this scope, include but are not limited to:

- Image Processing
- Signal Processing
- Robotics
- Physics
- Number Theory
- Computer Science
- Mathematics on the Internet
- Computer Aided Geometric Design
- Approximate Algebraic Computation
- Symbolic-Numeric Algorithms
- Computations in Pure Mathematics
- Systems of polynomial equations
- Systems of differential equations

- Control Theory
- Quantifier Elimination
- Mathematical Physics
- Education
- Combinatorial and Computational Methods in Algebraic Geometry
- Dynamical Systems and Mechanics
- Non-Standard Applications
- Symbolic and Numerical Scientific Computation
- Computational Biology
- Problem Solving Environments
- Linear Algebra
- Demos of Computer Algebra Software
- Automatic theorem proving

Papers must be submitted to the

guest editorIlias S. Kotsireas ilias@orcca.on.ca. They must be prepared using thenew Academic Press LaTeX Class File academic.cls, which can be obtained from http://www.academicpress.com/www/journal/TeX-uk/LaTeXFP.htmAlthough there is no restriction on length, we would prefer shorter papers (15 pages or less) to longer ones, for the sake of greater diversity and more thorough reviewing. Authors are therefore encouraged to be as concise as possible.

Electronic submissions are encouraged, and may be sent as one email (MIME attachments are allowed). The message should contain (i) the abstract in ASCII and (ii) the whole paper in Postscript. The Postscript form must be interpretable by Ghostscript, and must use standard fonts, or include the necessary fonts. Authors who cannot meet these requirements should submit 5 hard copies by post instead.

All submitted papers will be refereed according to the usual JSC refereeing process.

To aid planning and organization, we would appreciate an email or a letter of intent to submit a paper (including author information, a tentative title and abstract, and an estimated number of pages) as early as possible.
