Over the past 25 years, experimental mathematics has developed as an important additional arrow in the mathematical quiver. Many mathematical scientists now use powerful symbolic, numeric and graphic (sometimes abbreviated "SNAG") computing environments in their research, in a remarkable departure from tradition. While these tools collectively are quite effective, challenges remain in numerous areas, including: (a) rapid, high-precision computation of special functions and their derivatives; (b) user-customizable symbolic computing; (c) graphical computing; (d) data-intensive computing; and (e) large-scale computing on parallel and GPU architectures (including algorithm and software design for such systems).

This workshop will convene mathematical and computer scientists who create or exploit these tools, together with computational tool developers and commercial vendors of mathematical software, to exchange approaches and extend the state of the art in the field, both in the design of software and in the usage of this software for serious mathematical research.
