17th Symposium on the Integration of
Symbolic Computation and Mechanised Reasoning

Calculemus 2010

Paris, France    6th-7th July 2010


Call for Papers

Calculemus is a series of conferences dedicated to the integration of computer algebra systems (CAS) and systems for mechanised reasoning, the interactive theorem provers or proof assistants (PA) and the 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 systems for computer mathematics that will routinely be used by mathematicians, computer scientists and engineers in their every day business.

We seek original research papers for the upcoming Calculemus meeting, which will be held jointly with AISC 2010 and MKM 2010 (confederated in the Conferences on Intelligent Computer Mathematics, CICM 2010) in Paris (France).

Topics of Interest

The scope of Calculemus covers all aspects of the interplay of mechanised reasoning and computer algebra, including cross-fertilisation between those two research areas, as well as the development of integrated systems that transcend both computer algebra and theorem proving. Potential topics of interest include:

  • Theorem proving in computer algebra (CAS)
  • Computer algebra in theorem proving (PA and ATP)
  • Case studies and applications that both involve computer algebra and mechanised reasoning
  • Representation of mathematics in computer algebra
  • Adding computational capabilities to PA and ATP
  • Formal methods requiring mixed computing and proving
  • Combining methods of symbolic computation and formal deduction
  • Mathematical computation in PA and ATP
  • Theory, design and implementation of interdisciplinary systems for computer mathematics
  • Infrastructure for mathematical services
  • Theory exploration techniques

Papers on other topics closely related to the above research areas will also be welcomed for consideration.


Theoretical and applied research papers on all topics within the scope of the symposium are invited. Submitted papers must be in English and must not exceed 15 pages for full papers and we suggest 10 pages for emerging trends extended abstracts (the upper limit is 20 pages, authors must provide at least a title and 200 word abstract). The title page should contain the title, author(s) with affiliation(s), e-mail address(es), listing of keywords and abstract. The program committee will subject all full papers submitted to a peer review. Emerging trends papers will be lightly reviewed. Results must be unpublished.

Papers should be prepared in LaTeX and formatted according to the requirements of the Springer's LNAI series (the corresponding style files can be downloaded from http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html and are the same for LNCS and LNAI).

The web page for electronic submission is:


The proceedings of full papers of the conference will be published as a volume in the series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) by Springer-Verlag. In addition to the formal proceedings published by Springer, we will provide links to online versions of the published papers from the conference website.

Extended abstracts on emerging trends will be published as a technical report of CEDRIC (CNAM/ENSIIE) and will be electronically available. These papers are expected to be describing work in progress.
