Welcome to the homepage of RWCA 2006

On 16 and 17 March 2006 the 10th Rhine Workshop on Computer Algebra (RWCA) will be held in Basel, Switzerland. This informal workshop is held every other year and gives young researchers in all subfields of computer algebra an opportunity to present their work. Apart from that, it stimulates contact between computer algebraists in the region---though, of course, the workshop is open for everyone to submit papers or attend.

The on-line information about this workshop is organised as follows: First, the present page should convince you to participate or submit. Next, to do so, consult Participation and Submission.

Invited Speakers

Francis Sergeraert

on constructive algebraic topology

Charles Leedham-Green

on the matrix group recognition project
