MCS SPECIAL ISSUE
Formal Proofs for Mathematics and Computer Science
Laurent Théry and Freek Wiedijk
Call for Papers
We invite submission of papers on Proof Formalization
for possible publication in this Mathematics in Computer
Science (MCS) special issue.
Deadline for paper submission: August 31, 2013
Notification of acceptance/rejection: December 15, 2013
Publication of the special issue: Early 2014
In recent years, the use of Interactive Theorem Provers
for the formalization of mathematical proofs has seen
- In mathematics, the Flyspeck project and the formal
verification of Feit-Thompson theorem indicate that
formal proofs may play an active role in the development
of new mathematics.
- In computer science, the CompCert and L4.verified
projects indicate that non-trivial systems like compilers
and operating systems can be fully verified.
Still, much more progress is needed in order to make
the use of this new technology ubiquitous. The aim of
this special issue is to bring together high quality
contributions which present recent advances in the use
of formal proofs and new perspectives on the technology
of interactive theorem proving.
Papers should be submitted as a pdf.
While there is no
strict page limit, papers are expected to be approximately
20 pages long.
The LaTeX "mathincs" class should be used,
according to the guidelines at
< http://www.springer.com/birkhauser/mathematics/journal/11786 > .
Papers should either be accompanied by a formalization,
a library for an interactive theorem prover, or an
Submission is preferably through
