The Helsinki Workshop on Symbolic and Numeric Computation was
organized in May 1991 for the first time. The aims of the workshop
were then and are now to focus on combined symbolic and numeric
methods for scientific and engineering problem solving with possibly
the use of high performance computing environments and visualization
techniques. We will try to provide a forum for exchanging ideas and
introducing projects that develop or use some combination of such


The workshop is divided into two independent parts:

   - An AXIOM course given by Grant Keady (Mon-Tue)
   - The "actual" workshop (Wed-Fri)


   The Axiom course starts at 11.00 on Mon 24.5.    Auditorium G
   The workshop program starts at 11.00 on Wed 16.5. Auditorium G
