Call for Participation
22 July 2001
The Internet Accessible Mathematical Computation Workshop 2001 is being co-organized by Angel Diaz of IBM (USA), Norbert Kajler of Ecole des Mines de Paris (France), and Paul Wang of Kent State (USA). The workshop is part of ISSAC'2001 and will involve invited talks, contributed papers, and system demonstrations. This is the second IAMC workshop. The first IAMC workshop was held on 28 July 1999 as part of ISSAC'99, Vancouver, B.C. Canada.
The workshop has received NSF (USA) support and is free for all ISSAC'2001 participants. Otherwise, the IAMC'2001 Workshop registration fee is US$75 (CAN$110). To register please go to the ISSAC'2001 site. Everyone with an interest in the many aspects of making mathematical computation or information accessible on the Web/Internet is welcome to attend. Topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:
27 May 2001 ..... Discount accommodation reservation deadline
1 June 2001 ..... Notification of acceptance and call for participation
23 June 2001 ..... Full-length paper due
22 July 2001 ..... IAMC workshop
Workshop Registration and Accommodations
The IAMC Workshop is part of ISSAC'2001. Participants should register with the ISSAC'2001 conference.
Because of the 2001 Summer games and other special events in London, reserved accommodation for ISSAC 2001 is likely to disappear quickly after the accommodation deadline for guaranteed/discounted accommodation (May 27).
Details of our reserved accommodation and discounted rates can be found at
the ISSAC 2001 website at

08:30 -- 09:00 Registration (Conron Hall) 09:00 -- 09:30 Welcome and Workshop Theme (Conron Hall) 09:30 -- 10:30 Invited Talk (Conron Hall) Session Chair: Norbert Kajler (Ecole des Mines de Paris, France) Dr. Neil Soiffer (Wolfram Research, USA) MathML: the inside story Abstract: MathML has attracted a great deal of attention as the format to use for web-based Mathematics. This talk presents the whys of MathML, such as why the presentation math elements have structure to them, why there is no short input syntax, and why the content tag set does not have an evaluate tag. Sometimes the reasons are technical, sometimes historical, and sometimes there are political. Some of the rationale may be obvious, but some reasons may be quite surprising -- MathML may not be what you think it is. 10:30 -- 11:00 Break 11:00 -- 12:00 Contributed Papers I (Conron Hall) Session Chair: Angel Diaz (IBM USA) On the relationship between OpenMath and MathML Stephen Watt and Bill Naylor (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com) OpenMath Content Dictionaries: the Current State James H.
