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

  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:

  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

  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.

  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
