                Call for Papers: MathUI'15
        9th Mathematical User Interfaces Workshop 2015
    at the Conference on Intelligent Computer Mathematics
              Washington DC, USA, 1-day Workshop 
              between 13th -- 17th of July 2015

MathUI is an international workshop to discuss how users
can be best supported when doing/learning/searching for/interacting 
with mathematics using a computer.
  - Is mathematical user interface design a design for
    representing mathematics, embedding mathematical context, 
    or a specific design for mathematicians? 
  - How is mathematics for which purpose best represented? 
  - What specifically math-oriented support is needed? 
  - Does learning of math require a platform 
    different than other learning platforms? 
  - Which mathematical services can be offered? 
    Which services can be meaningfully combined? 
  - What best practices wrt. mathematics can be found
    and how can they be best communicated?

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 11 years; 
it features presentations of brand new ideas in papers selected by 
a thorough review process, wide space for discussions,as well as a
software demonstration session.

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 2015. 
 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.
