CFP: 10th International Workshop on User Interfaces for Theorem Provers (UITP 2012)

1 May 2012

10th International Workshop on User Interfaces for Theorem Provers (UITP 2012)

11.07.2012, Bremen, Germany, Part of CICM 2012

While interactive theorem provers have found many new application areas in the last years, the system interfaces have often not enjoyed the same attention as the proof engines themselves. In many cases, interfaces remain relatively basic and under-designed. More and more, this is becoming an obstacle for the wider adoption of theorem proving technologies outside the academic community.

The User Interfaces for Theorem Provers workshop series provides a forum for researchers interested in improving human interaction with interactive proof systems, be it theorem provers, formal method tools, and other tools manipulating and presenting mathematical formulas.

For the forthcoming 10th UITP workshop, we invite contributions from the theorem proving, formal methods and tools, and HCI communities, both to report on experience with existing systems, and to discuss new directions. Topics covered include, but are not limited to:

  • Application-specific interaction mechanisms or designs for prover interfaces;
  • Experiments and evaluation of prover interfaces;
  • Languages and tools for authoring, exchanging and presenting proof;
  • Implementation techniques (e.g. web services, custom middleware, DSLs);
  • Integration of interfaces and tools to explore and construct proof;
  • Representation and manipulation of mathematical knowledge or objects;
  • Visualisation of mathematical objects and proof;
  • System descriptions.

Submitted papers should describe previously unpublished work (completed or in progress), and not be longer than twelve pages. We encourage concise but relevant papers. Submissions should be in PDF format, and typeset with the EasyChair LaTeX document class (which can be downloaded from, or in similar style.

Submission will be via EasyChair. All papers will be peer reviewed by members of the programme committee and selected by the organizers in accordance with the referee reports.


Accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings, which will be available in printed form at the workshop. After the workshop, revised papers can be submitted to a postproceedings, which will appear in an archivable electronic format, preferably published open access.

Important Dates

  • Submission deadline: 01.05.2012
  • Acceptance notification: 01.06.2012
  • Camera-ready copy: 15.06.2012
