Workshop Overview

Automated reasoning (AR) systems have been advancing in their 
capabilities, allowing them to operate on increasingly larger and more 
complex theories. At the same time extensive digital sources of knowledge 
are becoming available, ranging from formal ontologies over databases and 
dictionaries to natural language references. Online sources like 
Wikipedia, mathematical libraries like Mizar, IMDb and various search 
engines and web services have gained widespread acceptance among the 
general population, but the sheer quantity of data can be an obstacle for 
human users. To make such knowledge more accessible there is a growing 
interest to employ the deductive power of AR systems. Not only does this 
provide challenges to researchers in the field of automated deduction, but 
it is also a chance to bring the results into the public, and to see a 
large-scale practical usage of AR.
