1994 EUROPEAN MATHEMATICA CONFERENCE FOR ADVANCED USERS ======================================================= The 1994 European Mathematica Conference is intended for current Mathematica users who wish to increase their knowledge and application of Mathematica. Wolfram Research is hosting the conference. For advanced users, this conference provides training in creating and promoting Mathematica Packages, interactive texts, Books and MathLink Applications. There will be opportunities to discuss Mathematica design with its developers. For intermediate users, workshops will enhance Mathematica expertise and teach new ways to apply it to real-life problems. Learning from the experiences of advanced Mathematica users will be of further benefit. Location St. Anne's College, Oxford, United Kingdom Dates ===== September 18-20, 1994 There will be an Opening Reception on Sunday evening, September 18. Conference sessions will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, September 19, and end at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 20.
