Mathematicians dream of a digital archive containing all peerreviewed
mathematical literature ever published, properly linked and
validated/verified. It is estimated that the entire corpus of mathematical
knowledge published over the centuries does not exceed 100,000,000
pages, an amount easily manageable by current information technologies.
Following success of DML 2008,
workshop's objectives are to formulate the strategy and goals of
a global mathematical digital library and to summarize the current
successes and failures of ongoing technologies and related projects,
asking such questions as:
 What technologies, standards, algorithms and formats should be used
and what metadata should be shared?
 What business models are suitable for publishers of mathematical
literature, authors and funders of their projects and institutions?
 Is there a model of sustainable, interoperable, and extensible
mathematical library that mathematicians can use in their everyday work?

What is the best practice for
 retrodigitized mathematics (from images via OCR to MathML and/or TeX);
 retroborndigital mathematics (from existing electronic copy in
DVI, PS or PDF to MathML and/or TeX);
 borndigital mathematics (how to make needed metadata and file formats
available as a side effect of publishing workflow
[CEDRAM/Euclid model])?
Every submission was refereed by three PC members on the basis
of technical quality, novelty, potential impact for
building DML, and clarity.
Submission format:
Papers should conform to the Springer LNCS style,
preferably using LaTeX2e and the Springer llncs class files.
Submission categories:
Full paper: 412 LNCS pages
Short paper/poster/demo/work in progress report: 14 LNCS pages
Submission upload
Via Easychair conference system by May 4th.
has been published (x+139 pages with author, name and subject indexes)
by Masaryk University (ISBN 9788021047815) and will be available at the workshop.
You may order it from this
eshop.
Best papers will be chosen for postconference book published
by renowned publisher or for a journal special issue
[as in 2008].
