Third International Conference on Technology in Mathematics Teaching
September 29th - October 2nd, 1997
University of Koblenz Germany
This conference is about the role of technology in mathematics education at school, college and university. It seeks to continue at a European venue the tradition established by the International Conference on Technology in Collegiate Mathematics (ICTCM), founded by Professors Bert Waits and Franklin Demana of the Ohio State University, and held annually in the United States of America since 1988. That tradition has been widely influential in the effective use of technology in mathematics teaching. ICTMT-3 continues as the third European conference (the first in Birmingham, England, 1993 and the second in Edinburgh, Scotland, 1995).

CTMT - 3 Koblenz
The third European International Conference on Technology in Mathematics Teaching will bring together classroom practitioners, curriculum developers, mathematical education researchers and university lecturers, all of whom share a desire to improve the quality of student learning. Keynote lectures and invited lectures by distinguished speakers will be complemented by a programme of specialist short talks and workshops. We hope there will be an exhibition of books and products by publishers, software and calculator companies. The conference will take place at the campus of the University in Koblenz, situated on the Rhine peninsula of Koblenz-Oberwerth, one mile from the main railway station of Koblenz.
The Koblenz University is part of the University Koblenz-Landau, a university of Rhineland-Palatinate with nearly eight thousand students, half of whom study in the four faculties of educational sciences, of letters, of natural sciences and of computer sciences in Koblenz. Training many teacher students on the one hand and many computer science students on the other at the university, one endeavours to connect education with the use of computers.
Koblenz is a two thousand years old city, situated in the centre of the famous Rhine valley, where the Mosel joins the Rhine. It provides access to many sites in and outside the town, like the old city with famous buildings and churches, the "Deutsches Eck", the Loreley at St. Goarshausen, many old castles of the Rhine valley, the monastery of Maria Laach, the Lahn valley with Bad Ems and Limburg. Thirtyfive miles north of Koblenz lies the city of Bonn, sixty miles north KÃÂ¶ln (Cologne), sixty miles south Mainz and hundred miles south-west Luxembourg. The International Airports of Frankfurt, of Cologne/Bonn and of Duesseldorf are all convenient for Koblenz. There are rapid train connections from these airports to Koblenz. Inter City Trains run through Koblenz from the south of Germany (Munich, Stuttgart, Freiburg (Black Forrest)) to the north (Hamburg) and as well to the east (Berlin). A wide range of good quality accomodation is available in Koblenz.
The conference languages will be English and German.
The conference fee will be DM 200 (payment before 01. 07. 1997) and will include the cost of lunches, coffees, teas and the proceedings published on a CD-ROM.
