     Call for Papers for a Special Issue of MATHEMATICS IN COMPUTER SCIENCE

              ENABLING DOMAIN EXPERTS TO USE FORMALISED REASONING
       http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/research/projects/formare/pubs/mcs-doform/

           Guest editors: Manfred Kerber, Christoph Lange, Colin Rowat

We invite high-quality original research papers to a special issue of
the Birkhäuser/Springer journal Mathematics in Computer Science on the
use of systems based on a formal, explicit, machine-verifiable
representation of knowledge in application domains such as economics,
engineering, health care, education. Examples include:

* problems from application domains, which could benefit from better
  verification and knowledge management facilities, and

* knowledge management and verification tools, which domain experts
  can use without a computer science background. (Read more about our
  topics of interest)

For further examples, please see the Symposium on Enabling Domain
Experts to use Formalised Reasoning
(http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/research/projects/formare/events/aisb2013/)
held at the annual convention of the AISB (Society for the Study of
Artificial Intelligence and Simulation of Behaviour) in April 2013.

    Submission: 31 October 2013
    Notification: 15 December 2013
    Revised version due: 15 January 2014
    Final version due: 15 February 2014
    Publication (expected): April 2014

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* for domain experts: what problems in application domains could
  benefit from better verification and knowledge management
  facilities? Possible fields include:

  - Example 1 (economics): auctions, value-at-risk models, trading
    algorithms, market design

  - Example 2 (engineering): system interoperability, manufacturing
    processes, product classification

* for computer scientists: how to provide the right knowledge
  management and verification tools to domain experts without a
  computer science background?

  -  wikis and blogs for informal, semantic, semiformal, and formal
     mathematical knowledge;
  -  general techniques and tools for online collaborative mathematics;
  -  tools for collaboratively producing, presenting, publishing, and
     interacting with online mathematics;
  -  automation and human-computer interaction aspects of mathematical
wikis;
  -  ontologies and knowledge bases designed to support knowledge
     management and verification in application domains;
  -  practical experiences, usability aspects, feasibility studies;
  -  evaluation of existing tools and experiments;
  -  requirements, user scenarios and goals.

Submissions should be approximately 20 pages long, should follow
publishers' instructions and should be submitted via EasyChair.

Potential contributors may contact the guest editors
(doformmcs2014@easychair.org) to discuss the suitability of topics and
papers.
