The Fourth Asian Technology Conference in Mathematics December 17 - 21, 1999 Guangzhou Normal University (GNU) Guangzhou, P.R. China Professor Wu, Wen-tsun Honorary Conference Chair Mirror Site in China: Chinese Version (http://www.guangztc.edu.cn/atcm99) E-mail: atcm at runet.edu Fax: (China) +86 20 86234160 or +86 20 86234992 (US) 540 831 6706 Main Theme "Applications of Technology in Mathematics Research and Teaching for the 21st Century" ATCM'99 will provide an interdisciplinary forum for researchers and teachers in education, mathematics and mathematical sciences, together with researchers and developers of computer technology, to present their results in using computer technology and exchange ideas and information in their latest development. The conference will cover a broad range of topics on the relevancy of technology in mathematical research and teaching. These include but not limited to: 1. computer-aided teaching in mathematical sciences 2. computer algebra (systems) in research and teaching 3. multimedia and distance learning 4. graphing calculators 5. mathematical research and teaching using technology 6. numerical analysis The conference will consist of plenary sessions by invited speakers, parallel sessions by contributed papers, and tutorial sessions on software and hardware relevant to mathematical research and teaching. Books, software and hardware may also be on display. (By Alphabetical Order of Their Surnames): * Bruno BUCHBERGER (Austria) * CHUAN Jen-chung (Taiwan) * Keith O.

Abstracts can be submitted by electronic mail in either generic LaTeX (no special style files other than those provided in LaTeX) format, in HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language), or ASCII text form. Use the LaTeX template or the HTML template or the ASCII template provided at http://www.cs.runet.edu/~atcm/ATCM99 if at all possible. Also, abstracts can be submitted electronically via the WWW from the site (http://www.cs.runet.edu/~atcm/ATCM99/SubmitForm.html). Or, if you have no access to internet email, you can submit your abstract as a hard copy by postal mail. Accompanying each abstract (except for submissions via the Web), you must include a text file/typewritten page that indicates the primary contact person. Information of the contact person includes full name, postal mailing address, email address (preferred), phone number and fax number if any. Each abstract must be sent to both chairs of the International Program Committee.

Also, authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to submit the full paper version. All full papers will be refereed. Accepted full papers (that are presented at the conference) will appear in the Proceedings (Hard Copy) and the Electronic Proceedings. Submission guideline for full papers is given next. Full Papers Papers shall not exceed 10 printed A4 pages (12 pt and no less) in length. Papers contributed by Plenary & Special Session Speakers shall not exceed 15 printed A4 pages (12 pt and no less) in length. Detailed specifications are given in full guidelines as PDF. Specifications relating to page dimensions, font size etc. are given in page specifications in page specifications (a PDF file). (If you use the LaTeX2e proforma format, all these specifications are taken care of automatically.) You must choose any one of the following two formats to submit your full paper. The Editor-in-Chief/Editors reserve the right not to publish in the Electronic Proceedings, or EP, papers which are in exotic format X (regardless of acceptance by referees based on content), if, in their judgment, it is too difficult to achieve a uniform style in the EP with papers in exotic format X. HTML The use of HTML should be restricted to articles that have a minimum of mathematical symbols. All figures must be in either GIF or JPEG format. All references should be cited using the numerical system (e.g., ) in the order in which they appear in the text. All references to a Web Site should be written using the anchor tag. If you are preparing your document using some word processing software which has a conversion-to-HTML facility, please follow the guidelines given in the page specifications. LaTeX2e Guidelines in LaTeX2e format are given in this file. The guidelines can be used as a LaTeX2e template. They contain a description of how to include any postscript (EPS/PS) files. In order to run this file Guidelines.tex you will need to download also the files atcm99.tex, bibtexlogo.sty, and fourierfig1.eps. Make sure you use the correct filename when "save".) A copy of this file can be viewed as a pdf file. Tutorials The ATCM'99 would like to invite educators and researchers in mathematical sciences to submit proposals to conduct tutorials for participants during the conference. The scope of proposal should be consistent with the themes of ATCM'99. The ATCM'99 will be an excellent opportunity for the computer hardware, software and calculator companies to bring in experts to conduct hands-on tutorials for the interested participants in ATCM'99. We expect to attract over 400 educators and researchers around the world. Guidelines for submission follow the same as submission for abstracts and/or full papers where applicable. Accepted full proposals will be compiled in the Electronic Proceedings only. The URL will be published in the hardcopy of the Proceedings. Tutorial proposals should also indicate the proposed number of hour(s) to conduct the tutorials, and equipment needed. Notification of acceptance will be sent out on or before August 30, 1999. Interested parties may submit the ABSTRACTS and FULL PROPOSALS to BOTH parties below Dr. Wei-Chi Yang, Chair, International Program Committee wyang at runet.edu Dr. Dongming Wang, Vice Chair, International Program Committee Dongming.Wang at imag.fr Exhibitions ATCM'99 will provide spaces during the period of the conference for software, hardware, calculator companies, and the book publishers to display their latest products or books in the field of mathematical sciences. Fee for one exhibition area of 3 by 9 square feet: US $500. To reserve an exhibition area at ATCM'99, please send a cashier's check or money order to the following address by September 15, 1999. Note: In addition to the exhibition fee, each exhibitor needs to pay for the regular registration fee AND fill out the registration form so we can prepare the badges.
