Conference Program, Call for Papers and Registration Form 
(updated 16 March 1995)

MATHEMATICA in MATHEMATICS RESEARCH and EDUCATION

University of Tasmania 
8-10 July 1995

The Mathematica Conference will immediately follow the Annual Conference of
the Australian Mathematical Society, 2-7 July 1995, also at the University
of Tasmania.  

Up-to-date information about the Mathematica Conference may be accessed on
the World Wide Web at

     http://euler.maths.utas.edu.au/Maths/MathematicaConference.html

You'll also find a link there to a nice online tour of Tasmania.

The support is acknowledged of the Australian Mathematical Society and of
PICA Software as a Commercial Sponsor of the conference.

CALL for PAPERS 
Papers for presentation at the conference should be in the form of
Mathematica Notebooks.   Papers may address any topic in mathematics
teaching or research (and should indicate which).  The Program Committee
will consider papers, in complete or outline form, for inclusion in the
conference program.  The University of Tasmania has a Mathematica site
licence, and, where appropriate, contributed Mathematica materials may be
made accessible to conference participants on computers in the Mathematics
and other Computing Laboratories.  Papers should be submitted to the
Conference Chair, preferably by email, before 1 May 1995.  Email
notification of acceptance of papers will be issued by 15 May 1995. 
Accepted papers will be published in Mathematica World.  

CONFERENCE PROGRAM

* Day 3  Monday 10 July 1995  Paul Abbott's Mathematica Programming Course 


Intensive intermediate-level Mathematica programming course,    with a
limit of 20 participants.  Participants should be familiar with the basics
of Mathematica:  built-in functions, basic data-types such as lists,
definition and use of simple functions.  Topics covered:
- Writing functions
- Assignment statements
- Pattern-matching
- Rule-based programming
- Functional programming
- Importing and formatting data
- Using Mathematica to solve a real-world problem
- Developing a reusable package; modularity and scoping (Block and Module)
        
INVITED PRESENTERS
Paul Abbott, University of Western Australia, is a computational physicist
well-known in Mathematica circles.  Dr Abbott worked for Wolfram Research
for two and a half years.  He is a Contributing Editor of the Mathematica
Journal and an Associate Editor of Mathematica World, and was an invited
speaker at the Mathematica Conferences in Boston and Tokyo in 1992.  He has
given a number of Mathematica training courses, and in a 1994 lecture tour
spoke on Mathematica at 11 Japanese Universities.

Stephen Hunt, a mathematician, is the founding editor of the electronic 
publication Mathematica World.  He has written many articles on Mathematica
and 
through Mathematica World Interactive Mathematica Centers is seeking to aid
the 
implementation of interactive Mathematica materials in mathematics
education.  
You can sample Mathematica World on the web at 
http://www.wri.com/MW/

David Leigh-Lancaster is Head of the Mathematics Faculty at Kingswood
College, Victoria. He is well known as an author of a current mainstream
VCE textbook and has been VCE Examiner in the units Reasoning and Data and
Mathematical Methods.  His current research interests include global
methods for mathematical curriculum design, development and review;
extended task assessment in mathematics; and the use of technology in these
areas.   Kingswood College is committed to using Mathematica throughout
senior schooling, in paricular to support the investigative project/problem
components of the VCE courses.

Ed Packel is the Chairperson of the Department of Mathematics and Computer
Science at Lake Forest College, Illinois.  His research interests include
operator theory, social choice and game theory, information-based
complexity, and use of technology in teaching mathematics, and his
publications include three books: Functional Analysis: A Short Course, The
Mathematics of Games and Gambling, and (with Stan Wagon) Animating
Calculus: Mathematica Notebooks for the Laboratory.

Terry Robb is an applied mathematician at Monash University.  He is the
creator of the popular package Intercall which enables users of Mathematica
to transparently include calls to purpose-designed numerical packages such
as IMSL and NAG in their Mathematica code.  He is also the author of the
Planetarium.ma Notebook (MathSource 0206-132) with which you can display
star charts, compute planet positions and determine eclipses.  Dr Robb is
an Associate Editor of Mathematica World.

Tim Stokes is a mathematician who works at Murdoch University.  His
research interests include Groebner base algorithms and the automatic proof
of geometry theorems, in particular using Maple and  Mathematica.
