SCOPE

MathUI is an international workshop to discuss how users interact with
mathematics represented on a computer.

- Did users of your software have the a-ha moment
after exploring mathematical objects?
- Did you meet a team of people that exchanged math electronically
as easily as talking together on a blackboard?
- Is it as easy to search for mathematics facts as to search
for a history date?
- Have mathematics learning resources a special flavor
that make them less easy to re-use?
We invite all questions, that care for the use of mathematics
on computers and how the user experience can be improved,
to be discussed in the workshop.

Topics include:
- user-requirements for math interfaces
- presentation formats
- mobile-devices powered mathematics
- cultural differences in practices of mathematical languages
- didactically sensible scenarios of use
- spreadsheets as mathematical interfaces
- manipulations of mathematical expressions
This workshop follows a successful series of workshops
held at the Conferences on Intelligent Computer Mathematics
since 10 years; it features presentations of brand new ideas
in papers selected by a review process, wide space for discussions,
as well as a software demonstration session.

SUBMISSIONS

The organizers invite authors to submit contributions of 6 to 12 pages
on the workshop-related topics in PDF format optionally
illustrated by supplementary media such as video
recordings or access to demos.

Deadline for submissions: May 22th 2014.

Method of submission: please login and submit via EasyChair.

The submissions will be reviewed by the international programme
committee whose comments and recommendations will be sent back
by June 6th requesting a final version no later than June 16th.

Moreover, MathUI will be concluded by an expo-like
demonstration session. Proposed demonstrations should be sent
by email until June 20th, containing a URL to a software
description, a title, a short abstract of the demonstrated features,
and the indication of hardware expectations (own/lent laptop/tablet,
internet access (speed?), power, ...). After a short elevator pitch,
the demonstration session will run for 1-3h, each demonstrating to
interested parties.
