Mathematical Knowledge Management is an innovative field at the intersection of mathematics, computer science, library science, and scientific publishing. Its development is driven by on the one hand new technological possibilities which computer science, the Internet, and intelligent knowledge processing offer, and on the other hand the increasing demand by engineers and scientists for new techniques for producing, transmitting, consuming, and managing sophisticated mathematical knowledge.
The conference is concerned with all aspects of mathematical knowledge management. Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Representations of mathematical knowledge
- Repositories of formalized mathematics
- Mathematical digital libraries
- Diagrammatic representations
- Multi-modal representations
- Mathematical OCR
- Mathematical search and retrieval
- Deduction systems
- Math assistants, tutoring and assessment systems
- 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
- Challenges and Solutions for Mathematical workflows
MKM 2008 welcomes research papers and workshop proposals with links to the above topics. The conference proceedings will be published in the Springer-Verlag series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI).
The following workshops take place in conjunction with MKM 2008:
- The "Mathematical User-Interfaces" Workshop (MathUI08) organized by Paul Libbrecht.
- The "Towards Digital Mathematics Library" Workshop (DML) organized by Petr Sojka.
