Conclusions

¥Need Symbolic/Numerical Integrated packages.

¥Adapt symbolic solving to the kind of systems appearing in industry (which are not of general type).

¥Disseminate the existence of symbolic solvers that deal with parameters.

¥It was very difficult to communicate:

lack of time,
lack of common language

¥Sometimes, to explore capabilities of CA into a particular problem

involves changing the mathematical model,
not simply solving in the given model.


¥Interesting contexts for cooperation seem to mainly arise with those in industry which are in the academic vicinity.


¥Many cases are not so (mathematically) challenging .

¥ Academia is a hostile environment.



¥Euroskeptic


¥Main way of fostering CA applications is through


-education (of future r&d staff)
-CA software development

but this is not academically rewarding...
