The second MathML and Math on the Web International Conference will be held June 29-30, 2002 at the Hickory Ridge Conference Center near Chicago, Illinois. The conference is sponsored by Wolfram Research, Waterloo Maple, Design Science, the American Mathematical Society, Compaq Computers, and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). This conference brings together those interested or involved in the future of math on the web, and provides a forum for presenting and discussing current research and applications emphasizing MathML. The conference embraces all facets of MathML technology including rendering, authoring, converting, computation, publishing, and also curriculum development for these areas. Ample opportunities will be provided for interaction among attendees of the conference. New this year is a "demo" night, featuring demonstrations of some of the leading MathML applications. As is befitting a web-oriented conference, there will be a large email lab and a wireless network with a high-speed connection available for those attending. Conference registration is currently being accepted at https://www.wolfram.com/mathmlconference/register.cgi Two pre-conference MathML tutorials are also being offered on Friday, June 28. Space is limited for these hands-on tutorials, so early registration is strongly recommended. More information about the conference, including the full schedule of events and presentation abstracts, is available on the MathML Conference website at www.mathmlconference.org Please note that a late fee will be imposed for those registering after May 17.
