                  Call for Papers: MathUI'14
           9th Mathematical User Interfaces Workshop 2014
        At the Conference on Intelligent Computer Mathematics
             Coimbra, Portugal, a day in 7-11 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 20th 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 10 requesting a final version no later than June 20.

 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.
