CICM (Conference on Intelligent Computer Mathematics) is an annual conference that includes tracks on Mathematical Knowledge Management (MKM) and Digital Mathematical Libraries (DML).

In recent years papers on Mathematical Information Retrieval have also appeared in ACM SIGIR, ACM CIKM and the Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL).
