Guest editors: Emanuela de Negri, Elisa Gorla, Jonathan Hauenstein, Sonja Petrovic.

Any researcher interested in the topics of the MEGA conference series is invited to submit a paper for a Special Issue of the Journal of Symbolic Computation.

All the papers will be refereed according to the JSC standards.

The special issue is devoted to effective methods in algebraic geometry, including their foundations, analysis, complexity, computational aspects, practical issues and applications.

Topics include:
Algorithmic algebra, computational algebraic geometry, symbolic computation, commutative algebra, real geometry, algebraic number theory, convex algebraic geometry, as well as applications of these fields, e.g., to coding theory, cryptography, robotics, statistics, optimization, tensor decompositions, etc.

Guiding principles for the publication are as follows:
The introduction of the paper must explicitly address the following questions in succinct and informal manner:
– What is the problem?
– Why is the problem important?
– What has been done so far on the problem?
– What is the main contribution of the paper on the problem?
– Why is the contribution original? (see below for clarification)
– Why is the contribution non-trivial?
– How does the journal paper differ from the conference paper (if relevant)?

Submit only complete papers:
– All previous relevant work (from JSC and other journals or conferences) must be properly cited and carefully discussed.
– All the theorems must be rigorously proved.
– All the important definitions/theorems/algorithms must be illustrated by well chosen examples.
– Address all the feedback from the conference’s referee process and Q/A (if relevant).

Authors of accepted papers of MEGA 2022 are encouraged to submit their work to the special issue, but the submission is open to anyone.
