Call for Extended Abstracts & System Descriptions

Theorem proving components for Educational software
International Conference on Automated Deduction
6-11 August 2017
 Gothenburg, Sweden

ThEdu'17 Scope

Computer Theorem Proving is becoming a paradigm as well as a technological base for a new generation of educational software in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The workshop brings together experts in automated deduction with experts in education in order to further clarify the shape of the new software generation and to discuss existing systems.

Topics of interest include:

  • methods of automated deduction applied to checking students' input;
  • methods of automated deduction applied to prove post-conditions for particular problem solutions;
  • combinations of deduction and computation enabling systems to propose next steps;
  • automated provers specific for dynamic geometry systems;
  • proof and proving in mathematics education.

Important Dates

  • Extended Abstracts:    18 June 2017
  • Author Notification:      2 July 2017
  • Workshop Day:            6 August 2017


Interested researchers are invited to submit extended abstracts and system descriptions. Both kinds of submissions should be approximately 5 pages in length and present original unpublished work not submitted elsewhere.

Submission is in PDF format via easychair, https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=thedu17
formatted according to http://www.easychair.org/publications/easychair.zip

The extended abstracts and system descriptions will be made available online. At least one author is expected to presents his/her submission at ThEdu'17.

It is expected that after presentation at the conference, selected authors will be invited to submit a substantially revised version, extended to 14-20 pages, for publication by the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS).
