RISC, Linz, AustriaA few decades ago, minimizing resource use was a crucial factor in the development of any computer algebra software. Many successful systems were born under these conditions, including CAMAL, Maple, Derive and Macaulay as examples. Since then, hardware improvements have pushed the concern of base resource requirements into the background: the user interfaces to modern systems typically require more resources to launch than the algebra engine, and algorithm implementation often focuses on the complexity to solve very large problems. The art of compact computer algebra is becoming again increasingly important. New directions for symbolic computing include the migration from workstations to handheld devices and the changing role from standalone applications to lightweight services within integrated systems. Whether running on a graphing calculator or as support of a clientside web application, certain applications of computer algebra require compact data representation, spaceefficient algorithms and effective memory management. The purpose of this session is to communicate efforts in research, design, development and application of compact computer algebra. We invite contributions in all aspects of this area, including, but not limited to
