# General information

The annual conference **Polynomial Computer Algebra** is devoted to polynomial algorithms in Computer Algebra.
This field has a lot of applications both in theoretical and applied mathematics as well as in Computer Science.
The conference PCA'2016 is the eighth in the series . The first one PCA'2008 commemorated Eugene Pankratiev who was a brilliant specialist
in the field of Computer Algebra and Differential Algebra.

The conference topics will include but not restricted to:

- Gröbner bases
- Combinatorics of monomial orderings
- Differential Gröbner bases
- D-modules
- Polynomial differential operators
- Involutive algorithms
- Computational algebraic geometry
- Computational group theory
- Computational topology
- Parallelization of algorithms
- Algorithms of tropical mathematics
- Quantum computing
- Cryptography
- Tropical manifolds
- Matrix algorithms
- Complexity of algorithms

We plan five working days, each day containing two plenary talks in the morning and 7 - 8 contributed talks

Bus Excursion around St.Petersburg and visit to Peter and Paul Fortress and the conference dinner are scheduled for Thursday.

**Registration fee** is 200 Euro.

Reduced fee of 1500 Rub for Russian participants does not cover lunches, Airport pick up and the conference dinner.
