Main Theme

"Applications of Technology in Mathematics Research and
Teaching for the 21st Century"

ATCM'99 will provide an interdisciplinary forum for researchers and teachers
in education, mathematics and mathematical sciences, together with
researchers and developers of computer technology, to present their results in
using computer technology and exchange ideas and information
in their latest development. The conference will cover a broad range of
topics on the relevancy of technology in mathematical
research and teaching. These include but not limited to:

1. computer-aided teaching in mathematical sciences
2. computer algebra (systems) in research and teaching
3. multimedia and distance learning
4. graphing calculators
5. mathematical research and teaching using technology
6. numerical analysis

The conference will consist of plenary sessions by invited speakers, parallel
sessions by contributed papers, and tutorial sessions on software and
hardware relevant to mathematical research and teaching.
Books, software and hardware may also be on display.

Submission Guidelines


Your abstract must show title, author(s) and affiliation(s)
and must not exceed one A4 or letter size page; see this example in pdf


Abstracts can be submitted by electronic mail in either generic LaTeX
(no special style files other than those provided in LaTeX) format, in
HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language), or ASCII text form. Use the LaTeX template
or the HTML template or the ASCII template provided at
if at all possible.

Also, abstracts can be submitted electronically via the WWW
from the site

Or, if you have no access to internet email, you can submit
your abstract as a hard copy by postal mail.

Accompanying each abstract (except for submissions via the
Web), you must include a text file/typewritten page that indicates the
primary contact person. Information of the contact person includes full
name, postal
mailing address, email address (preferred), phone number and fax number if

Each abstract must be sent to both chairs of the International Program

Prof. Wei-Chi Yang

38031 Grenoble Cedex, France

Notification of acceptance of abstracts for presentation at
the conference will be sent out on 15 July 1999. Also, authors of accepted
abstracts will be invited to submit the full paper version. All full papers
will be refereed. Accepted full papers (that are presented at the conference)
will appear in the Proceedings (Hard Copy) and the Electronic Proceedings.
Submission guideline for full papers is given next.

Full Papers

Papers shall not exceed 10 printed A4 pages (12 pt and no
less) in length. Papers contributed by Plenary & Special Session Speakers
shall not exceed 15 printed A4 pages (12 pt and no less) in length.

Detailed specifications are given in full guidelines as PDF.
Specifications relating to page dimensions, font size etc. are given in
page specifications in page specifications (a PDF file). (If you use the
proforma format, all these specifications are taken care of automatically.)

You must choose any one of the following two formats to
submit your full paper. The Editor-in-Chief/Editors reserve the right not
to publish
in the Electronic Proceedings, or EP, papers which are in exotic format X
(regardless of acceptance by referees based on content), if, in their
judgment, it is too difficult to achieve a uniform style in the EP with papers
in exotic format X.


The use of HTML should be restricted to articles that have a
minimum of mathematical symbols. All figures must be in either GIF or
JPEG format. All references should be cited using the numerical system (e.g.,
[3]) in the order in which they appear in the text. All references to a
Web Site should be written using the anchor tag.

If you are preparing your document using some word
processing software which has a conversion-to-HTML facility, please follow the
guidelines given in the page specifications.


Guidelines in LaTeX2e format are given in this file. The
guidelines can be used as a LaTeX2e template. They contain a description of
how to
include any postscript (EPS/PS) files. In order to run this file
Guidelines.tex you will need to download also the files atcm99.tex,
and fourierfig1.eps. Make sure you use the correct filename when "save".) A
of this file can be viewed as a pdf file.


The ATCM'99 would like to invite educators and researchers
in mathematical sciences to submit proposals to conduct tutorials for
participants during the conference. The scope of proposal should be
consistent with
the themes of ATCM'99. The ATCM'99 will be an excellent opportunity for
the computer hardware, software and calculator companies to bring in
experts to conduct hands-on tutorials for the interested participants in
ATCM'99. We expect to attract over 400 educators and researchers around the

Guidelines for submission follow the same as submission for
abstracts and/or full papers where applicable. Accepted full proposals will
be compiled in the Electronic Proceedings only. The URL will be published in
the hardcopy of the Proceedings. Tutorial proposals should also indicate the
proposed number of hour(s) to conduct the tutorials, and equipment needed.
Notification of acceptance will be sent out on or before August 30, 1999.

Interested parties may submit the ABSTRACTS and FULL
PROPOSALS to BOTH parties below

Dr. Wei-Chi Yang, Chair, International Program Committee

Dr. Dongming Wang, Vice Chair, International Program


ATCM'99 will provide spaces during the period of the
conference for software, hardware, calculator companies, and the book
publishers to
display their latest products or books in the field of mathematical sciences.

Fee for one exhibition area of 3 by 9 square feet: US $500.
