[Apologies for multiple copies] CICM 2014 - Conferences on Intelligent Computer Mathematics July 7-11, 2014 at University of Coimbra, Portugal http://www.cicm-conference.org/2014 First Call for Papers ------------------------------------------------------------------- As computers and communications technology advance, greater opportunities arise for intelligent mathematical computation. While computer algebra, automated deduction, mathematical publishing and novel user interfaces individually have long and successful histories, we are now seeing increasing opportunities for synergy among these areas. The Conferences on Intelligent Computer Mathematics (CICM) offer a venue for discussing these areas and their synergy. CICM has been held annually as a joint meeting since 2008, colocating related conferences and workshops to advance work in these subjects. Previous meetings have been held in Birmingham (U.K. 2008), Grand Bend (Canada 2009), Paris (France 2010), Bertinoro (Italy 2011), Bremen (Germany 2012) and Bath (U.K. 2013). This is a call for papers for CICM 2014, which will be held at the University of Coimbra, 7-11 July 2014, following the 10th International Workshop on Automated Deduction in Geometry. The principal tracks of the conference will be: Calculemus (Symbolic Computation and Mechanised Reasoning) Chair: James Davenport DML (Digital Mathematical Libraries) Chair: Petr Sojka MKM (Mathematical Knowledge Management) Chair: Josef Urban Systems and Projects Chair: Alan Sexton The local arrangements will be coordinated by the Local Arrangements Chair, Paedro Quaresma (U. Coimbra, Portugal), and the overall programme will be organised by the General Program Chair, Stephen Watt (U. Western Ontario, Canada). The proceedings of the conference will be published by Springer Verlag as a volume in Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI). As in previous years, it is anticipated that there will be a number co-located workshops, including one to mentor doctoral students giving presentations. ---------------------------------------------------------------- Important dates ---------------------------------------------------------------- Conference submissions: Abstract submission: 28 February 2014 Submission deadline: 7 March 2014 Reviews sent to authors: 4 April 2014 Rebuttals due: 8 April 2014 Notification of acceptance: 14 April 2014 Camera ready copies due: 25 April 2014 Work in progress and Doctoral Programme submissions: Submission deadline: 28 April 2014 (Doctoral: Abstract+CV) Notification of acceptance: 19 May 2014 Camera ready copies due: 26 May 2014 Conference: 7-11 July 2014 ---------------------------------------------------------------- Tracks ---------------------------------------------------------------- ================================================================ Track Calculemus: Symbolic Computation and Mechanised Reasoning ================================================================ Calculemus 2014 invites the submission of original research contributions to be considered for publication and presentation at the conference. Calculemus is a series of conferences dedicated to the integration of computer algebra systems (CAS) and systems for mechanised reasoning like interactive proof assistants (PA) or automated theorem provers (ATP). Currently, symbolic computation is divided into several (more or less) independent branches: traditional ones (e.g., computer algebra and mechanised reasoning) as well as newly emerging ones (on user interfaces, knowledge management, theory exploration, etc.) The main concern of the Calculemus community is to bring these developments together in order to facilitate the theory, design, and implementation of integrated mathematical assistant systems that will be used routinely by mathematicians, computer scientists and all others who need computer-supported mathematics in their every day business. All topics in the intersection of computer algebra systems and automated reasoning systems are of interest for Calculemus. These include but are not limited to: * Automated theorem proving in computer algebra systems. * Computer algebra in theorem proving systems. * Adding reasoning capabilities to computer algebra systems. * Adding computational capabilities to theorem proving systems. * Theory, design and implementation of interdisciplinary systems for computer mathematics. * Case studies and applications that involve a mix of computation and reasoning. * Case studies in formalization of mathematical theories. * Representation of mathematics in computer algebra systems. * Theory exploration techniques. * Combining methods of symbolic computation and formal deduction. * Input languages, programming languages, types and constraint languages, and modeling languages for mathematical assistant systems. * Homotopy type theory. * Infrastructure for mathematical services. ================================================================ Track DML: Digital Mathematical Libraries ================================================================ Mathematicians dream of a digital archive containing all validated mathematical literature ever published, reviewed, properly linked, and verified. It is estimated that the entire corpus of mathematical knowledge published over the centuries does not exceed 100,000,000 pages, an amount easily manageable by current information technologies. The track objective is to provide a forum for the development of math-aware technologies, standards, algorithms and formats for the fulfillment of the dream of a global digital mathematical library (DML). Computer scientists (D) and librarians of the digital age (L) are especially welcome to join mathematicians (M) and discuss many aspects of DML preparation. Track topics are all topics of mathematical knowledge management and digital libraries applicable in the context of DML building, including the processing of mathematical knowledge expressed in scientific papers in natural languages: * Math-aware text mining (math mining) and MSC classification * Math-aware representations of mathematical knowledge * Math-aware computational linguistics and corpora * Math-aware tools for [meta]data and fulltext processing * Math-aware OCR and document analysis * Math-aware information retrieval * Math-aware indexing and search * Authoring languages and tools * MathML, OpenMath, TeX and other mathematical content markup languages * Web interfaces for DML content * Mathematics on the web, math crawling and indexing * Math-aware document processing workflows * Archives of written mathematics * DML management, business models * DML rights handling, funding, sustainability * DML content acquisition, validation and curation * Reports and experience from running existing DMLs ================================================================ Track MKM: Mathematical Knowledge Management ================================================================ Mathematical Knowledge Management is an interdisciplinary field of research in the intersection of mathematics, computer science, library science, and scientific publishing. The objective of MKM is to develop new and better ways of managing sophisticated mathematical knowledge, based on innovative technology of computer science, the Internet, and intelligent knowledge processing. MKM is expected to serve mathematicians, scientists, and engineers who produce and use mathematical knowledge; educators and students who teach and learn mathematics; publishers who offer mathematical textbooks and disseminate new mathematical results; and librarians and mathematicians who catalog and organize mathematical knowledge. The track is concerned with all aspects of mathematical knowledge management. A non-exclusive list of important topics includes: * Representations of mathematical knowledge * Authoring languages and tools * Repositories of formalized mathematics * Deduction systems * Mathematical digital libraries * Diagrammatic representations * Mathematical OCR * Mathematical search and retrieval * Math assistants, tutoring and assessment systems * MathML, OpenMath, and other mathematical content standards * Web presentation of mathematics * Data mining, discovery, theory exploration * Computer algebra systems * Collaboration tools for mathematics * Challenges and solutions for mathematical workflows ================================================================ Track Systems and Projects ================================================================ The Systems and Projects track of the Conferences on Intelligent Computer Mathematics is a forum for presenting available systems and new and ongoing projects in all areas and topics related to the CICM conferences: * Deduction and Computer Algebra (Calculemus) * Digital Mathematical Libraries (DML) * Mathematical Knowledge Management (MKM) The track aims to provide an overview of the latest developments and trends within the CICM community as well as to exchange ideas between developers and introduce systems to an audience of potential users. ---------------------------------------------------------------- Submission Instructions ---------------------------------------------------------------- Electronic submission is done through Easychair http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cicm2014 All papers should be prepared in LaTeX and formatted according to the requirements of Springer's LNCS series (the corresponding style files can be downloaded from http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html). By submitting a paper the authors agree that if it is accepted at least one of the authors will attend the conference to present it. Submissions to the research tracks (Calculemus, DML, MKM) must not exceed 15 pages in the LNCS style and will be reviewed and evaluated with respect to relevance, clarity, quality, originality, and impact. Shorter papers, e.g., for system descriptions, are welcome. Authors will have an opportunity to respond to their papers' reviews before the programme committee makes a decision. System descriptions and projects descriptions should be 2-4 pages in the LNCS style and should present * newly developed systems, * systems not previously been presented to the CICM community, or * significant updates to existing systems. Systems must either be available for download or currently executable by the general public as a web application. Project presentations should describe * projects that are new or about to start, * ongoing projects that have not yet been presented to the CICM community or * significant new developments in ongoing previously presented projects. Presentations of new projects should mention relevant previous work and include a roadmap that outlines concrete steps. All project submissions must have a live project website and should contain links to demos, videos, downloadable systems or downloadable datasets. Accepted conference submissions from all tracks will be published as a volume in the series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) by Springer. In addition to these formal proceedings, authors are permitted and encouraged to publish the final versions of their papers on arXiv.org. Work-in-progress submissions are intended to provide a forum for the presentation of original work that is not yet in a suitable form for submission as a full paper for a research track or system description. This includes work in progress and emerging trends. Their size is not limited, but we recommend 5-10 pages. The programme committee may offer authors of rejected formal submissions the opportunity to publish their contributions as work-in-progress papers instead. Depending on the number of work-in-progress papers accepted, they will be presented at the conference either as short talks or as posters. The work-in-progress proceedings will be published as a technical report, as well as online with CEUR-WS.org. ---------------------------------------------------------------- Doctoral Programme ---------------------------------------------------------------- Chair: David Wilson (University of Bath, UK) CICM is an excellent opportunity for graduate students to meet established researchers from the areas of computer algebra, automated deduction, and mathematical publishing. The Doctoral Programme provides a dedicated forum for PhD students to present and discuss their ideas, ongoing or planned research, and achieved results in an open atmosphere. It will consist of presentations by the PhD students to get constructive feedback, advice, and suggestions from the research advisory board, researchers, and other PhD students. Each PhD student will be assigned to an experienced researcher from the research advisory board who will act as a mentor and who will provide detailed feedback and advice on their intended and ongoing research. Students at any stage of their PhD can apply and should submit the following documents through EasyChair: * A two-page abstract of your thesis describing your research questions, research plans, completed and remaining research, evaluation plans and publication plans; * A two-page CV that includes background information (name, university, supervisor), education (degree sought, year/status of degree, previous degrees), employments, relevant research experience (publications, presentations, attended conferences or workshops, etc.) Submission Deadline: 28 April 2014. ---------------------------------------------------------------- Programme Committee ---------------------------------------------------------------- General chair: Stephen Watt (University of Western Ontario, Canada) Calculemus track James Davenport, University of Bath, UK (Chair) Matthew England, University Of Bath, UK, Dejan Jovanović, SRI, USA Laura Kovács, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden Assia Mahboubi, INRIA, France Adam Naumowicz, Institute of Informatics, U.
