Michelle is very correct to point out that the vendor exhibits are good places to find state of the art mathematics and tools. I hesitate to completely agree that the sessions are out of date or less uptodate than the vendor exhibits.
Many of the presenters are very skilled in making proposals. For instance, Bert Waits made a presentation on "Computer Algebra in Your Pocket: The Next Revolution in Mathematics Learning." By being somewhat generic in his title, he was able to spend most of his presentation on the yet to be released TI92. Wow, whiz, bang! With interactive Cabri Geometry on board, a near computer like screen and the ability to step through very complex math (we saw some rather burdensome second derivatives become easy) Dr. Waits (Ohio State Univ) showed us some paths to more gain with the same pain (effort).
