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.

St. Anne's College, Oxford, United Kingdom
