Maple Conference 2022 - Call for Presentations - Maplesoft

Call for Participation

This conference is dedicated to exploring different aspects of the math software Maple, including Maple's impact on education, new symbolic computation algorithms and techniques, and the wide range of Maple applications. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the latest research, share experiences, and interact with Maple developers.

Maple Conference 2022 invites submissions of presentation proposals 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, Maple Learn, and/or Maple Calculator as tools to support remote learning or hybrid courses
  • Innovative uses of Maplesoft technology in the classroom (new ways to approach old problems, methods for teaching courses outside of traditional core math, impact on the curriculum, etc.)
  • Measurable improvements in student performance after integrating Maple, Maple Learn, and/or Maple Calculator 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

The work described in your presentation can be implemented in systems other than Maple, as long as its relevance to the Maple community is clearly expressed.

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

Virtual conferences have a lot of advantages, as we have all learned over the last couple of years. But the hardest part is always finding ways to replace those invaluable interactions with other attendees. So this year, we want to try a new approach.

Rather than recorded videos and live sessions where only the presenter can be heard, all presentations will be done live, and members of the audience can be heard to encourage more interactions and discussions. As in previous years, you can participate by giving a formal presentation of research results, interesting applications, or teaching experiences, and taking questions at the end.  But you can also incorporate more interactive elements, such as asking for a quick show of (zoom) hands, posing questions to the audience to encourage discussion, or even leading an interactive activity. 

Some things to note:

  • Live sessions will be recorded and recordings will be made available after the conference. (There is no need to prepare a video in advance.)
  • Each participant has approximately 10 minutes.
  • Participation sessions will take place as Zoom meetings, so audience members can speak directly to the presenter and each other.
  • All presentations are to be given in English.
  • Presenters will have the option to submit papers and articles to a special Maple Conference issue of the Maple Transaction journal after the conference.
  • Time being finite, spaces are limited. Selection will be based on the interest level of the topic to the community, and ensuring attendees will be exposed to a range of topics.

Applications are due July 18, 2022.

Maple Transactions Special Issue

After the conference, everyone who gives a presentation will be invited to submit related content to the Maple Transactions journal for consideration. Submissions on research results will undergo the standard journal peer-review process.  For non-research topics, you have the option of submitting high quality articles of general interest to the community, which will be reviewed by the editors. Submission criteria will be provided in the call for contributions. Accepted contributions in both categories will be published in a special Maple Conference 2022 issue of Maple Transactions.
