# MCS SPECIAL ISSUE

# Formal Proofs for Mathematics and Computer Science

# Guest Editors

## 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.
## Deadlines:

Deadline for paper submission: August 31, 2013

Notification of acceptance/rejection: December 15, 2013

Publication of the special issue: Early 2014

## Scope:

In recent years, the use of Interactive Theorem Provers
for the formalization of mathematical proofs has seen
impressive advances:
- 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.

## Submission guidelines:

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
implemented system.

Submission is preferably through
EasyChair at
< https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mcsfp2013 > .
