Symbolic Computation is concerned with the efficient algorithmic determination of exact solutions to complicated mathematical problems. Satisfiability Checking has recently started to tackle similar problems but with different algorithmic and technological solutions.

The two communities share many central interests, but researchers from these two communities rarely interact. Also, the lack of common or compatible interfaces for tools is an obstacle to their fruitful combination. Bridges between the communities in the form of common platforms and road-maps are necessary to initiate an exchange, and to support and direct their interaction. The aim of this workshop is to provide an opportunity to discuss, share knowledge and experience across both communities.

Submitting to the Workshop

The workshop is open for submission and participation to everyone interested in the topics, whether or not they were members or associates of the (now finished) H2020 FETOPEN CSA project “SC-Square”.

The topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Satisfiability Checking for Symbolic Computation
  • Symbolic Computation for Satisfiability Checking
  • Applications relying on both Symbolic Computation and Satisfiability Checking
  • Combination of Symbolic Computation and Satisfiability Checking tools
  • Decision procedures and their embedding into SMT solvers and computer algebra systems

Submission guidelines

Submissions should be in English, formatted in Springer LNCS style and submitted via EasyChair using this link

We invite three types of submissions:

  1. NORMAL PAPERS, describing research not published or submitted elsewhere (with a limit of 15 pages).
  2. EXTENDED ABSTRACTS, may be position papers, description of research prospects, challenges, projects, ongoing works, or applications relevant to SC-square (with a limit of 8 pages).

To receive the appropriate level of peer review, please declare your category of your submission by prefixing the title on the EasyChair form with “NP”, “EA” or “PO” accordingly.

For consistency, all submissions must use the LNCS style. The style files are here

We plan to publish the proceedings of the workshop digital form, hosted with CEUR-WS. Authors may opt out of this, should they prefer to publish the material elsewhere.

People from industry and business are warmly invited to submit papers to describe their problems, challenges, goals, and expectations for the SC-square community.

Earlier Workshops in the series

This is the 4th workshop in the series (originally created by the H2020 FETOPEN CSA Project “SC-Square”):

  1. the First SC2 Workshop took place in Timisoara, Romania in 2016;
  2. the Second SC2 Workshop took place in Kaiserslautern, Germany in 2017;
  3. the Third SC2 Workshop took place in Oxford, UK in 2018.
