Aims and Scope

The User Interfaces for Theorem Provers workshop series (http://www.informatik.uni-bremen.de/uitp) provides a forum for researchers interested in improving human interaction with interactive and automated deduction systems in a broad sense, including first- and higher-order theorem provers, sat-solvers, smt-solvers, proof assistants, description logic reasoners, expert systems, logic programming interpreters, tools for formal methods, and tools for manipulating and presenting mathematical formulas and proofs. For the forthcoming 11th UITP workshop, we invite contributions from users and developers of deduction tools, to report on their experience with existing systems and to discuss new directions. Topics under the scope of UITP include (non-exhaustively):

  • Experiments and evaluation of prover interfaces
  • Application-specific interaction mechanisms
  • Interfaces for expert systems
  • New designs for prover interfaces
  • Performance/responsiveness of user interface for theorem provers
  • Proof scripting languages
  • Proof formats for authoring, exchanging and presenting proofs
  • Implementation techniques (e.g. web services, custom middleware, DSLs, parallelism)
  • Infra-structure for sharing and using benchmarks for theorem proving
  • Summarization of proofs
  • Visualization of proofs
  • Visualization of large structured deduction problems
  • User-friendly repositories of formal mathematical knowledge
  • Mobile interfaces (iPhone or Android clients for deduction tools)
  • System descriptions
  • ...

Paper Submissions

Submitted papers should describe previously unpublished work (completed or in progress), and be at least 4 pages and at most 12 pages. We encourage concise and relevant papers. Submissions should be in PDF format, and typeset with the EPTCS LaTeX document class (which can be downloaded from http://style.eptcs.org/). Submission should be done via EasyChair (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=uitp14). 

All papers will be peer reviewed by members of the programme committee and selected by the organizers in accordance with the referee reports. There will be 2-3 reviews per paper.


Authors will have the opportunity to incorporate feedback and insights gathered during the workshop to improve their accepted papers before publication in the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS - http://www.eptcs.org/).
