Today mathematical knowledge manifests itself in different form. Besides publications, new forms of mathematical knowledge especially mathematical software, mathematical models, and mathematical data are becoming more and more important. But the access to these resources and their re-use is limited. The absence of powerful strategies and information services is one reason. The session ''Information services for mathematical software, models, and research data'' will address some problems of information services for these types of mathematical knowledge.
The aim of this session is to present and discuss some relevant problems and developments for the management and the presentation of information about mathematical software, models, and research data
(a) metadata standards for information services, e.g. citation standards
(b) state of the art of portals and repositories
(c) quality control of mathematical software
(d) management of research data in mathematics
(e) content analysis and semantification especially with respect to their relevance for computer algebra.

If you are interested in proposing a talk, please send an abstract to the organizers. Please use this LaTeX template for your abstract and send both the LaTeX source and a compiled PDF version. If you do not work with LaTeX, the submission may be sent in Word format (.doc or .docx file) and later, once accepted, we will try to adapt the proposal to the LaTeX template.
