CALL FOR PAPERS: OpenMath, 10 Jul 2013, Bath, UK

25th OpenMath Workshop
Bath, UK
10 July 2013
co-located with CICM 2013
Submission deadline 7 June


OpenMath ( is a language for exchanging
mathematical formulae across applications (such as computer algebra
systems).  From 2010 its importance has increased in that OpenMath
Content Dictionaries were adopted as a foundation of the MathML 3 W3C
recommendation (, the standard for
mathematical formulae on the Web.

Topics we expect to see at the workshop include

   * Feature Requests (Standard Enhancement Proposals) and Discussions
     for going beyond OpenMath 2;
   * Further convergence of OpenMath and MathML 3;
   * Reasoning with OpenMath;
   * Software using or processing OpenMath;
   * OpenMath on the Semantic Web;
   * New OpenMath Content Dictionaries;

Contributions can be either full research papers, Standard Enhancement
Proposals, or a description of new Content Dictionaries, particularly
ones that are suggested for formal adoption by the OpenMath Society.

IMPORTANT DATES (all times are "anywhere on earth")

   * 7 June: Submission
