The North American Chapter of The MKM Consortium
What is MKM?
Mathematical Knowledge Management (MKM) is an exciting new field in
the intersection of mathematics and computer science. The need for
good MKM is great: mathematical knowledge is vital to engineering,
science, and mathematics itself, and it is used by millions of people.
The challenge of MKM is also great: mathematical knowledge is
unsurpassed in its extent, richness, and interconnectedness. Current
technology is not capable of fulfilling this need and meeting this
challenge. More sophisticated technology based on new theory is
What is the MKM Consortium?
The MKM Consortium is a group of researchers, software developers,
mathematics practitioners, librarians, and publishers interested in
MKM founded under the leadership of Michiel Hazewinkel in December
What is the Purpose of NA-MKM?
The purpose of NA-MKM is to advance MKM in North America.
