Groebner bases (and related bases like characteristic sets, Groebner bases in differential rings, etc.) have found numerous applications in all areas of science and technology. Since the computation of such bases is known to be intrinsically complex, the improvement of algorithms for their computation and software for the many applications of Groebner bases is of utmost importance. Considerable progress has been made over the past decades and years in this area. Note however that this session is not a forum for the theory of Groebner bases and complexity. We want to focus exclusively on the implementation, software, and application aspect.
