Special Issue on the Interaction of Symbolic Computation and Machine 
Learning in Artificial Intelligence


Symbolic computation (SC) aims at providing algorithmic solutions to 
problems dealing with symbolic objects such as terms, formulas, 
programs, representations of algebraic objects, etc. Algorithms and 
methods developed for the major subfields of SC (computer algebra, 
computational logic, automatic programming) have found successful 
applications in various areas.

 From the beginning, SC was also considered a major approach to 
"artificial intelligence", since the problems solved by SC, typically, 
are problems that were considered hard for "human intelligence" (like 
symbolic integration, theorem proving, SAT/SMT solving, program 
verification, hardware verification, etc.).

Meanwhile, recent advances in artificial intelligence methods have 
provided new exciting opportunities in science and industry, being more 
and more integrated into most aspects of life. Machine learning (ML) 
methods, developed in parallel to symbolic methods for solving hard 
"artificial intelligence" problems, achieved spectacular results in 
numerous applications in recent years.

This special issue is dedicated to the interaction of symbolic 
computation and machine learning methods seen as the two major 
approaches to "artificial intelligence". We expect dramatic advances 
from a much closer interaction of the SC and the ML approaches to 
artificial intelligence. This interplay is, in fact, essential in the 
current scenario where the economy and society demand the development of 
complex, data-intensive, trustable, and high-performant computational 
systems that accompany humans in more and more facets of their daily life.

The special issue is organized as a follow-up of the 24th International 
Symposium on Symbolic and Numeric Algorithms for Scientific Computing, 
SYNASC 2022. Participants of the symposium, as well as other authors, 
are invited to submit contributions. We welcome submissions describing 
the interaction of SC and ML methods, techniques, and tools, and their 
applications in AI.

This special issue welcomes high-quality contributions, including papers 
with original research results as well as review articles. They will be 
peer-reviewed using the standard refereeing procedure of the Journal of 
Symbolic Computation.

Submitted papers must be in English, prepared in LaTeX according to the 
guidelines of the journal:

PDF versions of manuscripts must be submitted via Journal of Symbolic 
Computation online submission system (Editorial Manager):


Please select the article type "VSI: SYNASC 2022" when submitting your 
manuscript online.
