[isabelle] Call for Abstracts: Software for Mathematical Theory Exploration @ ICMS 2014



[Apologies for multiple copies]

Dear colleague,

we would like to draw your attention to the
4th International Congress on Mathematical Software,
find the details below.

In particular, please note that
  1) there are extended deadlines (April 30 for short abstract) and
  2) we have arranged for a Special Issue of the
     Journal of Symbolic Computation (JSC) for papers presented in
     this session.

Best regards,
Bruno Buchberger & Wolfgang Windsteiger

Abstract submission deadline:             April 30, 2014.
Extended Abstract submission deadline:    May 21, 2014.
Notification of acceptance:               May 31, 2014.

=============
Aim and Scope
=============

In recent years, research groups all over the world have started to develop
software for supporting the process of exploring mathematical theories in a
structured way. (Other names for this area are: mathematical knowledge
management, formal mathematics.) Progress in this area is based on advances in
automated reasoning and improvements in software and web technology.

Research in this area has the potential to revolutionize the way how
mathematical research, quality control in mathematics, archiving and
dissemination of mathematical knowledge,  application of mathematics and
education in mathematics will be done in the future.

======
Topics
======

This session is a forum for reporting on
- new features and techniques in existing systems for mathematical theory
  exploration,
- new systems for mathematical theory exploration, or
- major case studies in mathematical theory exploration and its applications.

Examples of topics from these categories are
--------------------------------------------

- applications of theory exploration in mathematics education,
- development and assessment of tools for structuring large theories,
- graphical and organizational tools for visualization of theories
     and their dependencies,
- application of theory exploration in semantic web technologies,
- application of theory exploration in mathematical finance and economy,
- application of theory exploration in medical information systems,
- implications of theory exploration for the future of mathematical publishing,
- implications of theory exploration for archiving and quality
     control in mathematics,
- special reasoning techniques for special mathematical theories
     (e.g. inductive theories, set theory, computer algebra algorithms),
- application of theory exploration in software science (e.g. algorithm
      verification and/or synthesis),
- application of theory exploration for abstract sytate machine analysis,
- application of theory exploration in model checking,
- application of theory exploration in the development of
      Wolfram-Alpha-like web services,
- applications in math text book writing and preparing lecture notes,
- etc., etc.

===========
Publication
===========

- A short abstract will appear on the permanent conference web page
  as soon as accepted.

- An extended abstract will appear on the permanent conference web page
  as soon as accepted. It will also appear on the proceedings that will be
  distributed during the meeting.

- A special issue of the Journal of Symbolic Computation (JSC) consisting of
  full papers will be organized immediately after the meeting.

==========
Submission
==========

- If you would like to give a talk at ICMS, you need to submit first a short
  abstract and then later an extended abstract. See the guideline on the web
  for the details.

- After the meeting, the submission guidelines for a journal special issue will
  be communicated to you by the session organizers.
