and be moderated by Jodie D. Novak, University
of Northern Colorado. Participants will have the opportunity
to meet with other women mathematicians at all stages
of their careers. All mathematicians (female and male)
are invited to attend the entire program. Departments
are urged to help graduate students and recent Ph.D.'s
who do not receive funding to obtain some institutional
support to attend the workshop and The associated meetings.
The deadline for applications for presenting and funding
has expired. Inquiries regarding future workshops may
be made to AWM by telephone: 301-405-7892, by email: firstname.lastname@example.org,

Math on the Web, Wednesday to Saturday, various
times. The problem of communicating Math on the Web is
really no different than communicating math via other
media. Namely, authoring and displaying mathematical notation
is difficult. On top of that, the Web is a dynamic medium,
where users can interact with rich media documents in
sophisticated ways. This introduces a whole new layer
of challenges and possibilities for engaging, interactive
communication between authors and readers.
Topics to be presented include MathML Markup; MathML,
Realizing the Promise; Creating Interactive Web Pages
with MathML; Displaying MathML in Browsers; Creating Mathematical
Documents for the Web with Scientific WorkPlace; TeX to
Web Conversion; MathML and Accessibility; A Spotlight
on MathML-savvy Applications; Math on the Web with Mathematica
Technology; and more! Stop by the Math on the Web
Pavilion to see the complete schedule.
A Live Computer Experiment, Wednesday, 5:00 p.m.
to 7:00 p.m., presented by Stephen Wolfram, Wolfram, Inc.
There will be a discussion of A New Kind of Science,
Mathematica, and the role of mathematics in today's world,
as well as an opportunity to see a new form of mathematical
discovery in action. There will be ample time for questions
from the audience.
Summer Program for Women in Mathematics (SPWM),
Thursday, 2:00 p.m. 4:00 p.m., organized by Murli
Gupta, George Washington University. SPWM participants
will describe their experiences from past programs.
