Call for Participation

Mathematical Knowledge Management (MKM) is an emerging interdisciplinary
field of research in the intersection of mathematics, computer science,
library science, and scientific publishing. Its objective is to develop new
and better ways of managing mathematical knowledge using sophisticated
software tools. Its grand challenge is to create a universal digital
mathematics library accessible via the World-Wide Web. Sponsored by the MKM
Interest Group, MKM 2006 will be the fifth conference in a series of
international MKM conferences that started in 2001.

The two day conference programme will consist of 20 fully refereed papers,
two invited speakers and a panel discussion. The MKM Interest Group Business
Meeting will be held on the Friday of the conference.

Invited Speakers:

     * Gregory J. Chaitin, IBM Research
       Irreducible complexity in pure math
     * Abdou Youssef, George Washington University
       Roles of Math Search in Mathematics

The conference programme will be available on the web site shortly.

Registration for the conference, and the associated workshop MathUI (User
Interfaces for Mathematics) is now available via the conference web site at:
