Dear Mathematica Users, Due to the support of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven CANdiensten will be providing Mathematica courses in Belgium. We are aiming at some course dates in June and September. More news about this will follow. Topics of this newsletter ____________________________________________ o International Mathematica Symposium 2008 o Course: Dynamic Interactivity o Course: Introduction to Mathematica o Course: Programming with Mathematica Check out our complete event list at: http://www.can.nl/events/ International Mathematica Symposium ____________________________________________ June 20-24 in Maastricht Celebrate the 20th Mathematica anniversary on the 23rd of June in the heart of Europe. The International Mathematica Symposium 2008 is a 5 day bi-annual event. Many special key note speakers will be present. The event is hosted by the University of Maastricht and the organization is in the hands of the Technical University of Eindhoven. The now bi-annual meeting 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, 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. IMS has a deserved reputation as an exceptionally convivial and friendly gathering. More detailed information is available from the IMS 08 web site: http://www.ims08.org Course: Dynamic Interactivity by Professor Fred Simons ____________________________________________ June 17 and October 28 in Amsterdam The course is meant for those users of Mathematica who want to have a better insight in the new structures and functions in Mathematica, in particular in dynamic objects. But other topics, such as the completely new and innovative documentation system, new features of graphics, the new function Grid and functions for creating buttons and links, will be discussed as well. Participation costs EURO 95,-- per person excluding VAT Registration and more information: http://www.can.nl/events/details.php?id=48 Course: Introduction to Mathematica by Professor Fred Simons ____________________________________________ May 20, October 7 and December 16 in Amsterdam The course offers an overview of Mathematica's many rich features. The broad knowledge you acquire enables you to explore Mathematica after the course at your own pace. Participation costs EURO 95,-- per person excluding VAT Registration and more information: http://www.can.nl/events/details.php?id=6 Course: Programming with Mathematica by Professor Fred Simons ____________________________________ September 16 and November 18 in Amsterdam All programming language functionality is available in Mathematica. Programs written in a standard programming language can be translated into a Mathematica program. However, this leads rarely to an efficient program. Often we can improve such a translation by using some more advanced Mathematica commands. Even better is to start from the very beginning and to use the structure of the dataset and the available functions in Mathematica for manipulation to arrive at the desired output. These principles will be demonstrated by many examples. Much attention will be paid to the speed of the programs. Participation costs EURO 250,-- per person excluding VAT Registration and more information: http://www.can.nl/events/details.php?id If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
