to this forum on the 2nd of November +++

Dear Mathematica User,

We invite you with great pleasure to the

	International Mathematica Symposium (IMS) 2008
	June 20-24, Maastricht, the Netherlands.

The International Mathematica Symposium is an interdisciplinary 
conference for Mathematica users in mathematics, natural and life 
sciences, engineering, computer science, education, industry and 
commerce, social sciences and law, graphics, design and architecture, 
and arts and music. If you use Mathematica in research or teaching, or 
if you are developing products based on Mathematica, then the 
Symposium is a unique opportunity to share your results with like-
minded colleagues.

Prominent Wolfram Research staff members will discuss and explain the 
latest software developments and give in-depth introductions to the 
new features of Mathematica 6. IMS has a deserved reputation as an 
exceptionally convivial and friendly gathering. Come and celebrate 
with us the 20th Mathematica anniversary on the June 23, 2008, in the 
heart of Europe.

The International Mathematica Symposium is a 5-day, 2-track conference 
with sessions for a wide range of disciplines, with distinguished 
keynotes, workshops, lectures, and discussion panels. To emphasize 
Mathematica and the life sciences, we invite IMS participants to an 
optional high-tech tour around Maastricht University Hospital the 
afternoon of Saturday, June 21. Several alternative leisure tours in 
and around Maastricht are offered as well. Sunday, June 22 is devoted 
to Mathematica in education, and a special one-day admission is 
available for those who wish to attend only this day. This Education 
Day will focus on Mathematica applications for school and university, 
and will highlight Mathematica features particularly suited for this 

Maastricht, a medieval town in the South of the Netherlands and 
birthplace of the European Union in 1992, provides a beautiful 
backdrop for the upcoming IMS. The Symposium will take place in the 
exquisite, state-of-the-art lecture halls of Maastricht University in 
the historic city center.

Call for Abstracts:

We welcome abstracts for three kinds of submissions:

The preferred form of submission is a paper provided via a 
Mathematica notebook with The Mathematica Journal stylesheet.

Instead of posters we promote the submission of Mathematica 
Demonstrations as described on The Wolfram Demonstrations Project

We also welcome talks or workshops without subsequent publication. 
These should be given as Mathematica slide shows.

Details and templates for all submission types are available on our 
website ( Abstracts will be reviewed by the Program 
Committee, and full papers, Demonstrations, talks, or workshop 
tutorials will be requested for those accepted. The Symposium is 
refereed, and proceedings will be published with ISBN on CD for the 
conference and electronically thereafter. Outstanding papers are 
eligible for subsequent publication in The Mathematica Journal
