CICM 2014 - Conferences on Intelligent Computer Mathematics
7-11 July 2014 at the University of Coimbra, Portugal
http://www.cicm-conference.org/2014
* * * Announcement of Invited Speakers * * *
* * * Call for Work-in-Progress Papers -- Deadline June 1 * * *
----------------------------------------------------------------------
As computers and communications technology advance, greater
opportunities arise for intelligent mathematical computation. While
computer algebra, automated deduction, mathematical publishing and
novel user interfaces individually have long and successful histories,
we are now seeing increasing opportunities for synergy among these
areas. CICM 2014 offers a venue to discuss these areas and their
synergy.
The conference will take place at the University of Coimbra, Portugal,
and consists of four tracks:
* Calculemus, Chair: James Davenport
* Digital Mathematical Libraries (DML), Chair: Petr Sojka
* Mathematical Knowledge Management (MKM), Chair: Josef Urban
* Systems and Projects, Chair: Alan Sexton
As in previous years, there will be a Doctoral Programme for the
mentoring of Doctoral students and several co-located workshops.
* MathUI 2014: Mathematical User Interfaces
* OpenMath Workshop 2014
* The Notion of Proof 2014
* ThEdu 2014: TP Components for Educational Software
* Doctoral Programme
All of these are now accepting contributions. Please see the web site
for their calls for submissions.
The overall programme is organised by the General Program Chair
Stephen Watt.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Work-in-Progress Call-for-Papers
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Work-in-progress submissions are intended to provide a forum for the
presentation of original work that is not (yet) in a suitable form for
submission as a full or system description paper. This includes work
in progress and emerging trends. Papers may be on any CICM topic,
including those from Calculemus, DML, MKM and Systems and Projects.
Accepted work-in-progress papers will be presented at the conference
as short teaser talks and as posters. The work-in-progress
proceedings will be published digitally in the CEUR Workshop
Proceedings series (CEUR-WS.org).
WiP papers should be prepared in LaTeX and formatted according
Springer's LNCS series (the corresponding style files can be
downloaded from http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html).
Papers should be between 5 and 10 pages in length.
By submitting a paper the authors agree that if it is accepted at
least one of the authors will attend the conference to present it.

==========
Calculemus
==========
Calculemus 2014 invites the submission of original research
contributions to be considered for publication and presentation at the
conference. Calculemus is a series of conferences dedicated to the
integration of computer algebra systems (CAS) and systems for
mechanised reasoning like interactive proof assistants (PA) or
automated theorem provers (ATP). Currently, symbolic computation is
divided into several (more or less) independent branches: traditional
ones (e.g., computer algebra and mechanised reasoning) as well as
newly emerging ones (on user interfaces, knowledge management, theory
exploration, etc.) The main concern of the Calculemus community is to
bring these developments together in order to facilitate the theory,
design, and implementation of integrated mathematical assistant
systems that will be used routinely by mathematicians, computer
scientists and all others who need computer-supported mathematics in
their every day business.
All topics in the intersection of computer algebra systems and
automated reasoning systems are of interest for Calculemus. These
include but are not limited to:
* Automated theorem proving in computer algebra systems.
* Computer algebra in theorem proving systems.
* Adding reasoning capabilities to computer algebra systems.
* Adding computational capabilities to theorem proving systems.
* Theory, design and implementation of interdisciplinary systems for
computer mathematics.
* Case studies and applications that involve a mix of computation and
reasoning.
* Case studies in formalization of mathematical theories.
* Representation of mathematics in computer algebra systems.
* Theory exploration techniques.
* Combining methods of symbolic computation and formal deduction.
* Input languages, programming languages, types and constraint languages,
and modeling languages for mathematical assistant systems.
* Homotopy type theory.
* Infrastructure for mathematical services.

DML
===
Mathematicians dream of a digital archive containing all peer-reviewed
mathematical literature ever published, properly linked, validated and
verified. It is estimated that the entire corpus of mathematical
knowledge published over the centuries does not exceed 100,000,000
pages, an amount easily manageable by current information
technologies.
Track objective is to provide a forum for development of math-aware
technologies, standards, algorithms and formats towards fulfillment of
the dream of global digital mathematical library (DML). Computer
scientists (D) and librarians of digital age (L) are especially
welcome to join mathematicians (M) and discuss many aspects of DML
preparation.
Track topics are all topics of mathematical knowledge management and
digital libraries applicable in the context of DML building --
processing of math knowledge expressed in scientific papers in natural
languages, namely:
* Math-aware text mining (math mining) and MSC classification
* Math-aware representations of mathematical knowledge
* Math-aware computational linguistics and corpora
* Math-aware tools for [meta]data and fulltext processing
* Math-aware OCR and document analysis
* Math-aware information retrieval
* Math-aware indexing and search
* Authoring languages and tools
* MathML, OpenMath, TeX and other mathematical content standards
* Web interfaces for DML content
* Mathematics on the web, math crawling and indexing
* Math-aware document processing workflows
* Archives of written mathematics
* DML management, business models
* DML rights handling, funding, sustainability
* DML content acquisition, validation and curation
===
MKM
===
Mathematical Knowledge Management is an interdisciplinary field of
research in the intersection of mathematics, computer science, library
science, and scientific publishing. The objective of MKM is to develop
new and better ways of managing sophisticated mathematical knowledge,
based on innovative technology of computer science, the Internet, and
intelligent knowledge processing. MKM is expected to serve
mathematicians, scientists, and engineers who produce and use
mathematical knowledge; educators and students who teach and learn
mathematics; publishers who offer mathematical textbooks and
disseminate new mathematical results; and librarians and
mathematicians who catalog and organize mathematical knowledge.
The conference is concerned with all aspects of mathematical knowledge
management. A non-exclusive list of important topics includes:
* Representations of mathematical knowledge
* Authoring languages and tools
* Repositories of formalized mathematics
* Deduction systems
* Mathematical digital libraries
* Diagrammatic representations
* Mathematical OCR
* Mathematical search and retrieval
* Math assistants, tutoring and assessment systems
* MathML, OpenMath, and other mathematical content standards
* Web presentation of mathematics
* Data mining, discovery, theory exploration
* Computer algebra systems
* Collaboration tools for mathematics
* Challenges and solutions for mathematical workflows
====================
Systems and Projects
====================
The Systems and Projects track of the Conferences on Intelligent
Computer Mathematics is a forum for presenting available systems and
new and ongoing projects in all areas and topics related to the CICM
conferences:
* Deduction and Computer Algebra (Calculemus)
* Digital Mathematical Libraries (DML)
* Mathematical Knowledge Management (MKM)
The track aims to provide an overview of the latest developments and
trends within the CICM community as well as to exchange ideas between
developers and introduce systems to an audience of potential users.
