MKM 2006
Fifth International Conference on
MATHEMATICAL KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT
http://www.reading.ac.uk/MKM06/
August 10-12, 2006
South East England [exact location TBA], UK
FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS AND WORKSHOPS
GENERAL
Mathematical Knowledge Management (MKM) is an emerging
interdisciplinary field of research in the intersection of
mathematics, computer science, library science, and scientific
publishing. Its objective is to develop new and better ways of
managing mathematical knowledge using sophisticated software tools.
Its grand challenge is to create a universal digital mathematics
library accessible via the World-Wide Web. Sponsored by the MKM
Interest Group, MKM 2006 will be the fifth conference in a series of
international MKM conferences that started in 2001 (see below).
CONFERENCE THEMES
MKM 2006 will stress two themes:
1. The nature of mathematical proof and its role in managing
mathematical knowledge. Mathematical proof is the traditional
method for certifying, communicating, and discovering
mathematical knowledge. The innovative use of computers to
perform mathematical computations, empirical confirmations, and
logical deductions is challenging conventional notions of
mathematical proof. What impact will new ideas about proof have
on MKM?
2. New modes of consuming and producing mathematical knowledge.
Engineers and scientists increasingly demand sophisticated
mathematical knowledge that is different from the kind of
knowledge mathematicians traditionally produce. Moreover,
engineers and scientists are obtaining a large and growing
portion of their mathematical knowledge by way of mathematical
software systems. How will such mathematical knowledge be
produced, transmitted, and consumed in the future?
MKM 2006 welcomes research papers and workshop proposals on these two
themes as well as on all other aspects of MKM.
PLENARY SPEAKERS
o Gregory J. Chaitin IBM Research
o Abdou Youssef George Washington University
PAPER SUBMISSIONS
Authors are invited to submit papers up to 12 pages that describe
original theoretical or applied research and that have not been
submitted for publication elsewhere. Submitted papers will be
peer-reviewed, and those papers accepted will appear in the
proceedings before the Conference. Authors of accepted papers are
expected to present their work at MKM 2006. The full paper in PDF
format should be submitted electronically via the Web-based submission
form at http://www.easychair.org/MKM2006/submit/ no later than March
13, 2006.
WORKSHOP PROPOSALS
Proposals for workshops on MKM-related topics are solicited.
Workshops will run for a half day or full day and may present
preliminary work, new ideas, or specialized topics for dissemination
and discussion. The workshop organizers are responsible for the
workshop program, but local arrangements will be organized by the
Conference.
A workshop proposal of no more than three pages should include the
workshop's title, the names and backgrounds of the organizers, the
description of the workshop topics and goals, the intended audience,
and a description of how the workshop will be run. Proposals in PDF
format should be submitted electronically via the Web-based submission
form at http://www.easychair.org/MKM2006/submit/ no later than
February 27, 2006.
