[ The Types Forum (announcements only),
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS -- DEADLINE APRIL 14 2018
Session on Composable mathematical software
International Congress on Mathematical Software - ICMS 2018 -
University of Notre Dame, 24-27 July 2018
We invite submissions of short abstracts (deadline: APRIL 14) and extended
abstracts (deadline: APRIL 21) for our session
"Towards Composable Mathematical Software".
We welcome submissions about work in progress, theoretical results,
experimental results, and software demos.
Accepted short abstracts will be presented at the congress.
Accepted extended abstracts will additionally appear in the conference
If you would like to submit an abstract, please follow the guidelines at
http://icms-conference.org/2018/submission-guidelines/. If you have any
please contact the session organisers by email.
There is a wealth of mathematical software available today, most of which are
free and open-source, but very specialised: for example nauty for graph
isomorphism, Singular for polynomials, Pari for number theory. Additionally
there are databases of objects like the OEIS, or the Small Group Library.
In contemporary mathematics research, we use and combine these specialised
tools, which requires domain-specific knowledge, data access and conversion,
and low-level programming for interfacing between them.
This is tedious, error-prone, and does not scale: Addressing the demand for
better composability there are huge software packages like SageMath, data
description languages like OpenMath, and RPC mechanisms like SCSCP.
The aim of this session is to provide a forum for developers and users of
mathematical software with an interest in composablity and interoperability
and knowledge and data exchange between systems, to share experiences,
and a vision for the future.
