Conferences on Intelligent Computer Mathematics 2010

The 9th International Conference on
Mathematical Knowledge Management

MKM 2010

Paris, France    8th-9th July 2010


Call For Papers

Mathematical Knowledge Management is an innovative field at the intersection of mathematics, computer science, library science, and scientific publishing. Its development is driven, on the one hand, by new technological possibilities which computer science, the Internet, and intelligent knowledge processing offer, and, on the other hand, by the increasing demand by engineers and scientists for new techniques to help in producing, transmitting, consuming, and managing sophisticated mathematical knowledge.

The conference is concerned with all aspects of mathematical knowledge management. Topics covered include, but are not limited to:.

  • Representations of mathematical knowledge
  • Repositories of formalized mathematics
  • Mathematical digital libraries
  • Diagrammatic representations
  • Multi-modal representations
  • Mathematical OCR
  • Mathematical search and retrieval
  • Deduction systems
  • Math assistants, tutoring and assessment systems
  • Authoring languages and tools
  • 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

MKM 2010 welcomes research papers and workshop proposals with links to the above topics. The conference proceedings will be published in the Springer-Verlag series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI). In addition to the formal proceedings published by Springer, we intend to make online versions of the published papers available from the conference website.

More information about the MKM conference series can be found at MKM Interest Group Webpage.

Submission Categories

Papers may be submitted in one of three categories: full papers, short papers or system descriptions.

Both full papers and system descriptions should not exceed 15 pages, must be original and not be submitted for consideration elsewhere. Full or system description papers that are accepted will be published in the conference proceedings. A submission not accepted as a full paper or system description will automatically be considered as a short paper.

Short papers are of a less formal nature. They are intended to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of works in progress or ideas that are not (yet) in a suitable form for submission as a full or system description paper. They may be up to 5 pages in LNCS style. Depending on the number of short papers accepted, presentation may be as a short talk or as a poster. It will be at the discretion of the programme committee to decide whether individual short papers will be accepted for presentation only or for presentation and publication in the conference proceedings.

The development of working systems in the field of Mathematical Knowledge Management is a major undertaking of significant value to our community. Papers describing such systems, however, are particularly difficult to compare to non-system development based research with respect to criteria common in reviewing. For this reason, papers in the system description category will be considered separately and an evaluation of their special contribution with be taken into account in the review process.

Criteria used in Reviewing

Criteria to be considered in reviews will include:

  • Relevance to the conference,
  • Clarity (readability and organization),
  • Technical quality and soundness,
  • Originality and innovation,
  • Impact of ideas or results, and
  • Impact of resources released.

This last criterion relates to any resources collected, developed or produced during the research described that will be released to the community. While it is relatively unusual for papers accepted at a conference to release such resources, it is a service to the community and we would like to encourage authors to do so.

Review Process

Authors must submit an abstract by the abstract submission date.

The full paper, of any of the three categories, should be received by the paper submission date.

Authors will then be sent initial reviews of their submissions.

Authors then have the option of, within one week, submitting a single response to the reviews, limited to 500 words, in which they can clarify any issues or questions that the reviewers had about their submission. This response can be submitted only once and cannot thereafter be resubmitted or modified.

Final reviews and acceptance rejection decisions will be sent to the authors by the final notification date.

Submission Details

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.

All submissions (except workshop proposals) must be formatted according to the guidelines used by Springer Verlag for their LNCS and LNAI series. This format can be found at
