A problem-solving environment (PSE) is an integrated software system
for solving problems in a specific application domain. A PSE should
enable the user to input and work on problems in a manner that is natural
to the problem domain. Furthermore, the user should not be
burdened by they underlying computer software and tools that are used by
the PSE.
Computer Algebra plays an important role in Problem Solving Environments
(PSEs), particularly PSEs for problems in Science and Engineering. This
session is devoted to discussions of what types of problem solving environments
are useful in science and engineering and what is the role of computer
algebra in such environments.
