                     Special Issue on Geometric Reasoning

Geometry is one of most studied areas of mathematics and, though its 
role as a
foundational system has evolved over time, it remains key to our 
of many aspects of the world. It is one of the first areas to which 
Intelligence (AI) was applied and has remained the focus of much work in the
field, giving rise to new mathematical concepts and techniques, heuristics,
algorithms, and applications over the past fifty years. In view of the 
of geometry and the sustained advances in the field of computer-based 
reasoning and its applications, the time seems ripe to take stock of the 
so far and look at some of the latest mathematical and AI-related 
advances in
the field. Thus, we invite original contributions -- ranging from theory to
implementations and applications -- and insightful surveys to a special 
issue of
the Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence on Geometric 

Relevant topics include (but are not limited to):

* Automated and interactive theorem proving in geometry involving algebraic,
   logical, and/or probabilistic approaches.
* Symbolic and numerical methods for geometric computation and constraint
* The formal verification of geometric algorithms, for instance in 
relation to
   computational geometry.
* Reasoning and manipulation via diagrams, including approaches based on 
* The design, implementation, and evaluation of software for geometric 
* Knowledge management and libraries of test problems for theorem proving in
* The applications to geometric modelling, CAGD/CAD, computer vision, 
   and education.


Prospective authors should follow the instructions set out by the Annals of
Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence on its webpage
(http://www.springer.com/computer/ai/journal/10472) and submit their 
through Springer's Editorial Manager System (at 
by the deadline indicated below.

Please note that the guest editors will first carry a quick assessment 
of each
submission and only papers that are deemed relevant to the special issue 
and are
of high enough quality will be forwarded to at least two referees for full,
independent reviews.
