CF Presentations: MIPS 2010 - Mathematically Intelligent Proof Search

		 MIPS 2010 -International Workshop on
	       Mathematically Intelligent Proof Search

		 CNAM, Paris, France, July 10th, 2010

MIPS explores the relationship between mathematical theory development
and  proof construction,  both in  formal and  informal  contexts.  In
either context, they are deeply  connected as the choice of a language
and   a  corresponding   inference  mechanism   correlates   with  how
effectively proofs can be obtained and how well mathematical arguments
can  be  communicated.  Thus  languages  can  range from  mathematical
vernaculars that are close to natural languages to purely formal ones;
inference mechanisms can structure arguments conceptually but may also
be  based  on  automated  proof  procedures  that  are  mathematically
intelligent.   MIPS  will  bring  together researchers  from  Computer
Science, Linguistics, Mathematics and Philosophy who are interested in
the whole subject or  parts of it, in order to get  an overview of the
state of the art, present  original results and discuss directions for
future   research.  More  information   on  MIPS   can  be   found  at

You are  invited to submit  a title and  a short abstract  proposing a
presentation on state  of the art, work in  progress, original results
or future directions of the workshop themes.

Please submit title and abstract (up to 2-5 pages) in PDF format to

Submission of title and abstracts:    18 June 2010
Notification of acceptance:           24 June 2010
