MathUI is an international workshop to discuss how users can be best
supported when doing/learning/searching for/interacting with mathematics
using a computer.

  * Is mathematical user interface design a design for representing
    mathematics, embedding mathematical context, or a specific design
    for mathematicians?
  * How is mathematics for which purpose best represented?
  * What specifically math-oriented support is needed?
  * Does learning of math require a platform different than other
    learning platforms?
  * Which mathematical services can be offered?
  * Which services can be meaningfully combined?
  * What best practices wrt. mathematics can be found and how can they
    be best communicated?

We invite all questions, that care for the use of mathematics on
computers and how the user experience can be improved, to be discussed
in the workshop.

      TOPICS include

  * user-requirements for math interfaces
  * presentation formats for mathematical content
  * mobile-devices powered mathematics
  * cultural differences in practices of mathematical languages
  * didactically sensible mathematical scenarios of use
  * spreadsheets as mathematical interfaces
  * manipulations of mathematical expressions

This workshop follows a successful series of workshops held at the
Conferences on Intelligent Computer Mathematics since 11 years;
it features presentations of brand new ideas in papers selected by a
thorough review process, wide space for discussions,as well as a
software demonstration session.


The organizers invite authors to submit contributions of 6 to 12 pages
on the workshop-related topics in PDF format optionally illustrated by
supplementary media such as video recordings or access to demos.

DEADLINE for submissions: May 30^th 2015.

Method of submission: please login and submit via EasyChair:

The submissions will be reviewed by the international programme
committee whose comments and recommendations will be
sent back by June 19^th requesting a final version no later than July 2^nd .

Moreover, MathUI will be concluded by an exhibit-like demonstration
session. Proposed demonstrations should be sent by email until June
20th, containing a URL to a software description, a title, a short
abstract of the demonstrated features, and the indication of hardware
expectations (own/lent laptop/tablet, internet access (speed?), power,
...). After a short elevator pitch, the demonstration session will run
for 1-3h, each demonstrating to interested parties.
