Collection 2018 - French computer algebra days - Journées nationales de calcul formel

Computer Algebra refers to the study and design of algorithms for manipulating mathematical expressions and objects. It lies at the interface between mathematics, computer science and various application fields. It covers a wide range of subjects, such as effective linear algebra, algorithmic number theory, integration and summation in closed form, differential and polynomial system solving, or special functions. The French computer algebra community is internationally renowned for the excellence of its theoretical work. Several libraries produced by its members are part of mainstream software packages such as Maple or Sage. This success is notably due to the Journées nationales de calcul formel (JNCF), which are a remarkable opportunity for researchers to discuss recent and ongoing work with their peers.

Expected outcomes include:

• A better integration of young researchers. The JNCF are an ideal opportunity for young researchers to present their results for the first time and also to get an overview of the various advances in Computer Algebra. This is especially important in the computer algebra community, where researchers need to build skills in both computer science and mathematics.

• New collaborations and interactions. The JNCF have traditionally been an opportunity to create successful collaborations between researchers from different parts of France. We now would like the JNCF to open to an international community, while remaining primarily French-speaking. The previous editions already included courses by colleagues from other European countries, and we intend to continue this trend. We also plan to better advertise the next JNCF in Mediterranean countries. ​ The days are articulated around courses by internationally recognized researchers, and shorter talks given mostly by PhD students and young researchers.
