              Sixth International Conference on


                      27--30 June 2007
                    Hagenberg --- Austria

                  SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

 Mathematical Knowledge Management is an innovative field in the
 intersection of mathematics and computer science.  Its development is
 driven on the one hand by the new technological possibilities which
 computer science, the internet, and intelligent knowledge processing
 offer, and on the other hand by the need for new techniques for
 managing the rapidly growing volume of mathematical knowledge.

 The conference is concerned with all aspects of mathematical knowledge
 management.  A (non-exclusive) list of important areas of current
 interest includes:

 Representation of mathematical knowledge
 Repositories of formalized mathematics
 Diagrammatic representations
 Mathematical search and retrieval
 Deduction systems
 Math assistants, tutoring and assessment systems
 Mathematical OCR
 Inference of semantics for semi-formalized mathematics
 Digital libraries
 Authoring languages and tools
 MathML, OpenMath, and other mathematical content standards
 Web presentation of mathematics
 Data mining, discovery, theory exploration
 Computer Algebra Systems
 Collaboration tools for mathematics
