                   Call for Papers: MathUI'14
            9th Mathematical User Interfaces Workshop 2014
         at the Conference on Intelligent Computer Mathematics
              Coimbra, Portugal, 10th of July 2014
                     please redistribute

     MathUI is an international workshop to discuss how users interact with
  mathematics represented on a computer.

  - Did users of your software have the a-ha moment
    after exploring mathematical objects?
  - Did you meet a team of people that exchanged math electronically
    as easily as talking together on a blackboard?
  - Is it as easy to search for mathematics facts as to search
    for a history date?
  - Have mathematics learning resources a special flavor
    that make them less easy to re-use?
  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
  - mobile-devices powered mathematics
  - cultural differences in practices of mathematical languages
  - didactically sensible 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 10 years; it features presentations of brand new ideas
  in papers selected by a 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 22th 2014.

  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 10th requesting a final version no later than June 20th.

  Moreover, MathUI will be concluded by an expo-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.
