Theorem-Proving Components for Educational Software
July 2021


28th International Conference on Automated Deduction
Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, USA
July 11-16, 2021

ThEdu'21 Scope:

  Computer Theorem Proving is becoming a paradigm as well as a
  technological base for a new generation of educational software in
  science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The workshop brings
  together experts in automated deduction with experts in education in
  order to further clarify the shape of the new software generation and
  to discuss existing systems.

Invited Speaker:

  Gilles Dowek, ENS Paris-Saclay

Important Dates:

 * Extended Abstracts:  25 April 2021
 * Author Notification: 23 May 2021
 * Workshop Day:        July 2021

Topics of interest include:

 * methods of automated deduction applied to checking students' input
 * methods of automated deduction applied to prove post-conditions
   for particular problem solutions
 * combinations of deduction and computation enabling systems to
   propose next steps
 * automated provers specific for dynamic geometry systems
 * proof and proving in mathematics education


  We welcome the submission of extended abstracts and demonstration
  proposals presenting original unpublished work which is not been
  submitted for publication elsewhere.

  All accepted extended abstracts and demonstrations will be presented
  at the workshop. The extended abstracts will be made available

  Extended abstracts and demonstration proposals should be submitted
  via EasyChair,
  formatted according to

  Extended abstracts and demonstration proposals should be
  up to 5 pages in length and are to be submitted in PDF format.

  At least one author of each accepted extended abstract/demonstration
  proposal is expected to attend ThEdu'21 and presents their extended

Contingency Plans (COVID19):

  If the pandemic status, at the time of the conference, should force
  CADE-28 to be implemented as an online event, ThEdu'21 will follow
  through, as a online workshop.

  The extended abstracts and system descriptions will be available at
  the ThEdu'21 Web-page. After presentation at the conference, selected
  authors will be invited to submit a full version of ther paper,
  extended to 14-20 pages, for publication by the Electronic Proceedings
  in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS).
