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.

format, all
these specifications are taken care of automatically.)

You must choose any one of the following two formats to submit your full
The Editor-in-Chief/Editors reserve the right not to publish in the
Proceedings, or EP, papers which are in exotic format X (regardless of
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.


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.
references should be cited using the numerical system (e.g., [3]) in the
order in
which they appear in the text. All references to a Web Site should be
using the anchor tag.

If you are preparing your document using some word processing software

The ATCM'99 would like to invite educators and researchers in
sciences to submit proposals to conduct tutorials for participants
during the
conference. The scope of proposal should be consistent with the themes
ATCM'99. The ATCM'99 will be an excellent opportunity for the computer
software and calculator companies to bring in experts to conduct
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
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

'99, GNU
will provide a shuttle bus service between the campus and the Baiyun
International Airport and the Guangzhou Railway Station.

We can arrange the following accommodations for the participants:

Guest House                              : US$22 per night

the price.
Price does not include breakfast. Cost of breakfast is very affordable

** Early registration is desirable, for it might be difficult to book a
room during the Christmas vacation.
