The First Call for Papers of
The Third International Congress on Mathematical Software
   [ ICMS'2010 --- developers meeting ]

(November 30, 2009)

Dates: September 13 to 17 (Monday to Friday), 2010
Place: Department of Mathematics, Kobe University, Kobe, Japan
Webpage: http://www.mathsoftware.org/


This congress is the third in the series, where the first meeting was  
held in
Beijing in 2002 and the previous one in Castro Urdiales, SPAIN in  
2006; see
http://www.icms2006.unican.es/ . The first two meetings were satellite  
to ICM (International Congress of Mathematicians). We will have a  
booth at ICM 2010 in India.

We will welcome developers of mathematical software systems as well as
researchers in algorithms and mathematicians who are interested in the
development of mathematical software and systems. This is an almost  
chance to meet people in different disciplines in mathematics and  
science and exchange ideas on developments on mathematical software and
systems. While the main audience of this meeting is assumed to be  
developers of
mathematical software and software systems, we welcome the  
participation of
mathematicians and scientists who are interested in using mathematical  
for their research.

The proceedings of the congress is planned and all reviewed papers and  
communications will be published as Springer Lecture Notes in Computer  
(The proceedings of ICMS 2006 was published as LNCS Volume 4151.)


Mathematics has a wide variety of branches. Despite this, we in the
International Congress on Mathematical Software believe that  
mathematics is
fundamentally just one thing. Algebra, geometry and analysis are  
examples of
separate specialities within mathematics, and of course we consider  
each of
them valuable and hence study them. But we take the view that any  
branch of
mathematics can borrow freely from these specialities. It is often  
delving into them for ideas that might lead to fundamental new  
The same can be said of mathematical software systems: the study of
mathematical software is a coherent whole. We believe that the  
appearance of
mathematical software is a fundamentally new event in mathematics of  
importance. Mathematical software systems are used to construct  
examples, to
prove theorems, and to find new mathematical phenomena. Conversely,  
research often motivates developments of new algorithms and new  
systems. Beyond
mathematics, mathematical software systems are becoming indispensable  
tools in
many branches of science and technology. The development of mathematical
software systems relies on the cooperation of mathematicians, algorithm
designers, programmers, and the feedback from users. The main audience  
of this
congress is the community of mathematical software developers and  
mathematicians, but we also intend to provide an opportunity to  
discuss these
topics with mathematicians and users from application areas. Topics  
include but
are not limited to:
1. Design and implementation of mathematical software
2. Software engineering problems for mathematical software.
3. Mathematics and media including user interfaces and integration of  
    and software systems.
4. Mathematics related to mathematical software (experiments,  
5. Scientific and high performance computing.
6. Applications of mathematical software.
