CALL FOR PAPERS: User Interfaces for Theorem Provers, 17 Jul 2014, Vienna, AUSTRIA


Important Dates

- Paper submission: May 4
- Author notification: May 25
- Final papers: May 31
- Workshop: July 17

Aims and Scope

The User Interfaces for Theorem Provers workshop series
( provides a forum for
researchers interested in improving human interaction with interactive
and automated deduction systems in a broad sense, including first- and
higher-order theorem provers, sat-solvers, smt-solvers, proof
assistants, description logic reasoners, expert systems, logic
programming interpreters, tools for formal methods, and tools for
manipulating and presenting mathematical formulas and proofs. For the
forthcoming 11th UITP workshop, we invite contributions from users and
developers of deduction tools, to report on their experience with
existing systems and to discuss new directions. Topics under the scope
of UITP include (non-exhaustively):

- Experiments and evaluation of prover interfaces
- Application-specific interaction mechanisms
- Interfaces for expert systems
- New designs for prover interfaces
- Performance/responsiveness of user interface for theorem provers
- Proof scripting languages
- Proof formats for authoring, exchanging and presenting proofs
- Implementation techniques (e.g. web services, custom middleware, DSLs,
- Infrastructure for sharing and using benchmarks for theorem proving
- Summarization of proofs
- Visualization of proofs
- Visualization of large structured deduction problems
- User-friendly repositories of formal mathematical knowledge
- Mobile interfaces (iPhone or Android clients for deduction tools)
- System descriptions

Paper Submissions

Submitted papers should describe previously unpublished work
(completed or in progress), and be at least 4 pages and at most 12
pages. We encourage concise and relevant papers. Submissions should be
in PDF format, and typeset with the EPTCS LaTeX document class (which
can be downloaded from Submission should be
done via EasyChair

All papers will be peer reviewed by members of the programme committee
and selected by the organizers in accordance with the referee
reports. There will be 2-3 reviews per paper.


Authors will have the opportunity to incorporate feedback and insights
gathered during the workshop to improve their accepted papers before
publication in the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer
