| CAFE, Computer Algebra and Functional Equations
|An international conference, in memory of Manuel Bronstein |
Thursday, July 13 2006, INRIA, Sophia Antipolis
INRIA - 2004, route des Lucioles - BP 93 - 06902 SOPHIA ANTIPOLIS Cedex, FRANCE
|Presentation and aims of the conference
This international conference offers homage to the scientific career
of one of INRIA's eminent researchers, Manuel Bronstein, who passed
away tragically last June.
Manuel Bronstein led INRIA's CAFÉ project (http://www-sop.inria.fr/cafe/), in the area of computer algebra.
The scientific work of Manuel Bronstein embraced a panorama of subjects
in this field, where he made a series of valuable contributions.
In addition, he served as an important animator and steward of the
discipline, as an editor and organizer, influencing the careers of
hundreds of researchers in France and internationally.
This conference will highlight aspects of computer algebra from the
perspective of M. Bronstein's work. The conference will take place July 13,
directly following the nearby ISSAC conference held 9-12 July 2006 in Genova.
The program will include a number of invited presentations
oriented toward the main lines of Manuel Bronstein's scientific
contributions and leadership.
These areas are in an evolutionary phase:one of the aims of the conference
is to speculate on their future direction.
