Call for Presentations

Submissions Now Closed

Maple Conference 2020 invites submissions of proposals for presentations on a range of topics related to Maple, falling into three broad categories:

Maple in Education

Topics could include, but are not limited to:
  • Effective ways to use Maple as a tool to support remote learning or hybrid courses
  • Innovative uses of Maple in the classroom (new ways to approach old problems, methods for using Maple to teach courses outside of traditional core math, impact on the curriculum, etc.)
  • Measurable improvements in student performance after integrating Maple into a course
  • Classroom tips and techniques/best practices drawn from experience

Algorithms and Software

Topics could include, but are not limited to:
  • Symbolic and symbolic-numeric methods for solving mathematical problems, from any field
  • Algorithm optimization and performance tuning techniques
  • Effective use of types and data representations for particular problems or domains
  • User interfaces for mathematical problem solving

Applications of Maple

Topics could include, but are not limited to:
  • Applications that use Maple in unusual settings or in unusual ways
  • Applications that push or extend the limit of what Maple can do
  • Applications that explore critical world problems
  • Applications that combine Maple with other technology

All presentation proposals will be reviewed by the conference organizing committee. If the proposal is accepted, the submitter will be invited to present their work at the conference.

After the conference, all presenters and invited speakers will be invited to submit a full paper for inclusion in the conference proceedings. These submissions will undergo peer-review, and the decision about acceptance or rejection lies with the Maple Conference 2020 Program Committee.



Presentation Proposals

Your presentation proposal should be in the form of a title and abstract for your proposed talk. Abstracts should be under one page/400 words in length, and must be in English. If your presentation proposal is accepted, at least one author is expected to attend the conference to present the paper.

All presentations are to be given in English.



After the conference, all presenters and invited speakers will be invited to submit a full paper on the work they presented. These papers will undergo peer-review, and if accepted, will appear in the conference proceedings. Papers should not duplicate work published or submitted for consideration elsewhere.

Papers must be in English and should be 6-15 pages in length. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings as part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science series from Springer.

Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.

Submit Proposal

Presentation Proposals should be in the form of a Word doc or a PDF. Submission is via EasyChair.
