Final Call for Papers, Talks, and System Demonstrations: AUTOMATHEO 2010




The 2010 Workshop on Automated Mathematical Theory Exploration


14-15 July 2010, Edinburgh, UK
a FLoC 2010 affiliated workshop of IJCAR and ITP.

Important Dates:

Wed. 5 May 2010 - Extended abstract and demo submission deadline
Wed. 2 June 2010 - Acceptance notification
Wed. 16 June 2010 - Final version of extended abstracts due
Wed 14 - Thu 15 July 2010 - Workshop

About the Automatheo workshop:

Automated mathematical theory exploration is an exciting emerging
research topic for mathematicians, developers of formalised
mathematics, and those working on verified software. This topic
concerns the theory and practice of developing software systems that
support the automated development of mathematical theories, including
the invention of definitions, theorems, conjectures, problems,
examples and algorithms. The workshop aims to highlight the research
area and foster collaboration amongst those working in software
verification, formalised mathematics, and mathematical research, as
well as help provide a shared understanding of the theory and tools
for automated invention and discovery of mathematical theories.

In this workshop, we want to encourage dissemination of knowledge as
well as interaction between researchers. To facilitate this, the
programme will start with talks and be followed by demo and tutorial
sessions in smaller groups. Participants will experiment with and use
the various systems, pose challenge problems, and develop a clear
understanding of the available technologies and concepts.

Invited Speakers: John Harrison and Dana S. Scott

Call for Participation and Submissions:

We invite proposals to give a talk and/or to provide a demo. Topics
and demonstrations of interest include all aspects of mathematical
theory exploration, especially the invention and discovery steps in
the development of mathematical theories.  This includes, but is not
limited to position statements, descriptions of important features,
theories of theory exploration, and systems descriptions.  We also
welcome contributions on the application of theory exploration to
other parts of mathematics, computer science and software engineering,
as well as to other sciences such as physics and biology.

Submissions will be accepted based on light reviewing of extended
abstracts by a review panel of researchers interested in the area. The
extended abstracts will not be archival publications, but will be
published online. Accepted submissions will also be disseminated in an
informal proceedings which will be available during the workshop.

Please submit extended abstracts and demo proposals by easychair:
These should not be longer than 15 pages and can be as short as 1
page. We suggest, but do not require, that you use the easychair style
for formatting submissions. This is available from:
We will also have a published post-proceedings some time after the
