Artificial Intelligence and Theorem Proving 2018 - Call for Papers

Geoff Sutcliffe

   Artificial Intelligence and Theorem Proving,
                       AITP 2018
        March 25-30, 2018, Aussois, France


             Deadline: December 3, 2017

Large-scale semantic processing and strong computer assistance of
mathematics and science is our inevitable future. New combinations of
AI and reasoning methods and tools deployed over large mathematical
and scientific corpora will be instrumental to this task.  The AITP
conference is the forum for discussing how to get there as soon as
possible, and the force driving the progress towards that.

    - AI, machine learning and big-data methods in theorem proving and
    - Collaboration between automated and interactive theorem proving.
    - Common-sense reasoning and reasoning in science.
    - Alignment and joint processing of formal, semi-formal,
      and informal libraries.
    - Methods for large-scale computer understanding of mathematics
      and science.
    - Combinations of linguistic/learning-based and semantic/reasoning
    - Formal verification of AI and machine learning algorithms, explainable
There will be several focused sessions on AI and machine learning for ATP,
SMT, ITP and mathematics, a session on ATP/ITP Hammers, session on Formal
Abstracts and natural language processing of mathematics, and several
sessions with contributed talks. The focused sessions will be based on
invited talks and discussion oriented.

The conference will take place from March 25 to March 30 2018 in the CNRS
Paul-Langevin Conference Center
( located in
the mountain village of Aussois in Savoy.  Dominated by the "Dent
Parrachée", one of the highest peaks of La Vanoise, Aussois is located
on a sunny plateau at 1500m altitude, offering a magnificent panorama
of the surrounding mountains and a direct access to the downhill ski
slopes or cross country slopes in winter. The total price for accommodation,
food and registration for the five days will be around 600 EUR.
