ECCAD, East Coast Computer Algebra Day, is an annual one-day conference that provides opportunities to learn and share new developments and to present research results in the area of Symbolic Computation. ECCAD 2004, will be held on Saturday, May 8th, 2004 and is hosted by the Computer Algebra Research Group, Department of Physics and Computer Science, Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. Previous ECCAD conference homepages can be consulted at:

  1. Tuesday, June 1, 2004: e-ECCAD'2004 An Electronic Conference in Computer Algebra
  2. Monday, May 3, 2004: Directions to the ECCAD'2004 conference building:
    • ECCAD'2004 will be held in the Laurier Faculty of Science Building, Room N1001, Ground Floor.
    • The Laurier Faculty of Science Building is located on King Street North, close to the King Street North and University Avenue West intersection in Waterloo. Taxi drivers (and everybody else in Waterloo) refer commonly to this intersection as "King and University".
    • The mailing address of the Laurier Faculty of Science Building is "75 University Avenue West" but the two entrances to the building (which are closer to room N1001) are actually on King Street, directly across the street from Lodge Street.
    • The Laurier Faculty of Science Building is shown as building number 24 in map1 and map2. See also this map.
  3. April 30, 2004: The conference web page will be inaccessible on Sunday May 2, 2004, due to a power shutdown affecting the Science building from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  4. April 21, 2004: NEW Deadline for submitting poster abstracts - May 1, 2004.
  5. April 8, 2004: All three ECCAD'2004 invited speakers are confirmed.

The MOCAA'2004 workshop is a two day workshop sponsored by the Fields Institute held in conjunction with ECCAD'2004. The workshop will consist of four featured invited talks along with a number of contributed talks all held in the Davis Center at the University of Waterloo.
