Dear Forum,
I hope it's OK to use this forum to advertize the following call for papers on algorithmic and applied aspects of algebraic topology (including group theory).

CALL FOR PAPERS
APPLICABLE ALGEBRA IN ENGINEERING, COMMUNICATION AND COMPUTING
SPECIAL ISSUE ON COMPUTER ALGEBRA IN ALGEBRAIC TOPOLOGY AND ITS APPLICATIONS
Guest Editors:
Graham Ellis, Eduardo Sáenz-de-Cabezón
Algebraic Topology is an area of pure mathematics with deep algebraic,
geometric and topological roots. Advances in computer science, particularly in
symbolic computation and manipulation, have increased the computability of
the concepts of algebraic topology to an extent that they are now increasingly
finding real life applications in areas such as data analysis, dynamical
systems, robotics, computer vision, communications, large scale networks,
concurrent computation, comparative genomics and many other areas. This special
issue is devoted to papers on potential and actual applications of algebraic
topology as well as to papers on computational techniques and problems related
to algorithmic algebraic topology.
Contributions are welcome on:
- Potential applications of algebraic topology in mathematics, computer science,physics, engineering, industry, communications, business and other areas.
- Actual applications of algebraic topology.
- All computational aspects of algebraic topology.
Fields of application include but are not restricted to:
–Coding theory
–Combinatorics
–Commutative algebra
–Computer science, including algorithms and distributed computing
–Data analysis
–Differential systems
–Digital images
–Discrete and computational geometry
–Dynamical systems
–Electromagnetism
–Effective homology
–Graph theory
–Group theory
–Medical sciences
–Persistent homology
–Physics
–Reliability theory
–Robotics
–Statistics
Paper submissions should follow the guidelines for AAECC submissions, see

Submissions can be sent to either of the editors:
Graham Ellis, graham.ellis at nuigalway.ie
Eduardo Sáenz-de-Cabezón, eduardo.saenz-de-cabezon at unirioja.es
All the papers will be refereed according to the AAECC standards.
DEADLINE: January 3, 2011
