Incorporating MKM 2011 and Calculemus 2011, and I hope an OpenMath 
Workshop, at least.

Call for Papers

Conference on Intelligent Computer Mathematics (CICM)

Bertinoro, Forli (Italy), 18-23 July 2011


Track A: Mathematical Knowledge Management (MKM)

Track B: Calculemus

In addition to the formal tracks above, CICM has historically had associated workshops, and workshop proposals should be sent to the CICM PC Chair (J.H.Davenport at bath.ac.uk), preferably by the end of February 2011.

Mathematical Knowledge Management is an innovative field at the intersection of mathematics, computer science, library science, and scientific publishing. Its development is driven, on the one hand, by new technological possibilities which computer science, the Internet, and intelligent knowledge processing offer, and, on the other hand, by the increasing demand by engineers and scientists for new techniques to help in producing, transmitting, consuming, and managing sophisticated mathematical knowledge.

Calculemus is a series of conferences dedicated to the integration of computer algebra systems (CAS) and systems for mechanised reasoning, the interactive theorem provers or proof assistants (PA) and the 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 systems for computer mathematics that will routinely be used by mathematicians, computer scientists and engineers in their every day business.

After successfully colocating as the Conference of Intelligent Computer Mathematics (CICM), MKM and Calculemus will formally join for CICM 2011. CICM seeks original high-quality submissions in two tracks. The topics of interest include but are not limited to:

** MKM track **

    * Representations of mathematical knowledge

    * Repositories of formalized mathematics

    * Mathematical digital libraries

    * Diagrammatic representations

    * Multi-modal representations

    * Mathematical OCR

    * Mathematical search and retrieval

    * Deduction systems

    * Math assistants, tutoring and assessment systems

    * Authoring languages and tools

    * 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

** Calculemus track **

    * Theorem proving in computer algebra (CAS)

    * Computer algebra in theorem proving (PA and ATP)

    * Case studies and applications that both involve computer algebra and mechanised reasoning

    * Representation of mathematics in computer algebra

    * Adding computational capabilities to PA and ATP

    * Formal methods requiring mixed computing and proving

    * Combining methods of symbolic computation and formal deduction

    * Mathematical computation in PA and ATP

    * Theory, design and implementation of interdisciplinary systems for computer mathematics

    * Theory exploration techniques

    * Input languages, programming languages, types and constraint languages, and modeling languages for mechanised mathematics systems (PA, CAS, and ATP).

    * Infrastructure for mathematical services

Papers on other topics closely related to the above research areas will also be welcomed for consideration.

***** Submission ***** 

CICM seeks both formal and work-in-progress submissions.

Formal submissions must not exceed 15 pages and will be reviewed by blind peer review and evaluated regarding to relevance, clarity, quality, originality, and impact. Shorter papers, e.g., for system descriptions, are welcome. Authors will have an opportunity to respond to their papers' reviews before the programme committee makes a decision.

Selected formal submissions will be published as a volume in the series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) by Springer-Verlag. In addition to these formal proceedings, authors are permitted and encouraged to publish the final versions of their papers on arXiv.org.

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. Their size is not limited, but we recommend 5 - 10 pages.

The programme committee may offers authors of rejected formal submission to publish as an work-in-progress submission instead. Depending on the number of work-in-progress papers accepted, presentation may be as a short talk or as a poster. The work-in-progress proceedings will be published as a technical report.

All papers should be prepared in LaTeX and formatted according to the requirements of the Springer's LNCS series (the corresponding style files can be downloaded from http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html). 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.
