On August 7-8, 1996, the second Workshop on Computer Arithmetic, Interval and Symbolic Computation was held in Recife, Brazil. The main purpose of the workshop was to bring together researchers interested in scientific computation and related topics and to present and discuss recent advances in this branch of computer science and its applications. Total about 27 talks and 10 posters were presented. 81 participants fi'om 8 countries (Brazil, France, Germany, Mexico, Portugal, Russia, Switzerland and the USA) attended the workshop. The major topics of interest included but were not limited to: theoretical foundations of the computational arithmetic, interval algorithms, interval arithmetic co-processors, interval probability, programming languages for scientific co,nputation, tools for scientific computation and symbolic computation. The workshop was held on the campus of the Federal University of Pernambuco. It was a part of the largest annual event in computer science in Brazil, the XVI Meeting of the Brazilian Computing Society. The XVI SBC, on August 4-9, 1996, attracted 1500 participants and accommodated a wide variety of events in computer science.
