THedu'15 Scope:

  The distinguishing feature of mathematics is reasoning: questionable
  statements are proved by the laws of logic. This kind of reasoning
  makes mathematics a central thinking technology of modern science.

  Educational software tools have integrated technologies from
  Computer Algebra, from Dynamic Geometry, from Spreadsheets and
  others, but not from (computer) theorem proving (TP) with few
  exceptions: the latter have been developed to model mathematical
  reasoning in software; theorem provers (TPs) are successfully used
  to tackle difficult proofs in the science of mathematics, like the
  Four Color Problem or the Kepler Conjecture; and TPs are
  successfully used to verify safety critical software in industry.

  This workshop addresses support for reasoning in mathematics education
  by use of TP technology.

  The workshop addresses educators and designers and developers of TPs
  as well as of other educational mathematics software; and the
  discussions shall clarify the requirements of education, identify
  advantages and promises of TP for learning and motivate development
  of a novel kind of tools probably establishing a new generation of
  educational mathematical tools.

  Important Dates

   * Extended Abstracts:   24 May 2015
   * Author Notification:  08 June 2015
   * Final Version:        21 June 2015
   * Workshop Day:         1 day (13-17 July)

   Points of interest include:

  Adaption of TP - concepts and technologies for education: knowledge
    representation, simplifiers, reasoners; undefinedness, level of
    abstraction, etc.

  Requirements on software support for reasoning - reasoning appears
    as the most advanced method of human thought, so at which age
    and what kind of support TP can provide?

  Automated TP in geometry - relating intuitive evidence with logical
    rigour: specific provers, adaption of axioms and theorems, visual
    proofs, etc.

  Levels of authoring - in order to cope with generality of TP:
    experts adapt to specifics of countries or levels, teachers adapt
    to courses and students.

  Adaptive modules, students' modelling and learning paths - services
    for user guidance provided by TP technology: which interfaces
    enable flexible generation of adaptive user guidance?
    Next-step-guidance, which suggests a next step when a student gets
    stuck in problem solving: which computational methods can extend
    TP for that purpose?

  TP as unifying foundation - for the integration of technologies like
    CAS, DGS, Spreadsheets etc: interfaces for unified support of
    reasoning?

  Continuous tool chains - for mathematics education from high-school
    to university, from algebra and geometry to graph theory etc.


Submission

  We welcome submission of extended abstracts and demonstration
  proposals presenting original unpublished work which is not been
  submitted for publication elsewhere.
    All accepted extended abstracts and demonstrations will be presented
  at the workshop. The extended abstracts will be made available
  online.
    Extended abstracts and demonstration proposals should be submitted via
  THedu'15 easychair (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=thedu15).
    Extended abstracts and demonstration proposals should be no more than
  4 pages in length and are to be submitted in PDF format. They must
  conform to the EPTCS style guidelines (http://style.eptcs.org/).
    At least one author of each accepted extended abstract/demonstration
  proposal is expected to attend THedu'15 and presents his/her extended
  abstract/demonstration.
