Since the first release of our C++--library for computational number theory, LiDIA, in February 1995 we received a lot of feedback, positive and negative, and many people gave us new ideas and asked for the future development of LiDIA.
Because of the increasing number of LiDIA users and the continuous interest in the system, we decided to organize a conference with the main goal to bring together the users and the developers of LiDIA, and to discuss the future direction of the system.
Members of our development team will present the structure and the current status of LiDIA, the way LiDIA software is developed, and future projects which will be realized in LiDIA.
Participants are invited to give an overview on how they use LiDIA and on their experience with LiDIA. It would be interesting to see the advantages and disadvantages of LiDIA in the daily work of the users.
In addition to the talks, there will be time to discuss special topics in small groups and to demonstrate software which was programmed using LiDIA.
Also software developers of other projects who are interested in a collaboration with the LiDIA group are invited to talk about their ideas and to use the opportunity to discuss projects with our team.
