8th Asian Technology Conference in Mathematics (ATCM2003) aims to provide an
interdisciplinary forum for teachers, researchers, educators and decision makers
around the world in the fields of mathematics and mathematical sciences. It
also provides a venue for researchers and developers of computer technology
to present their results in using technology in both basic research and pedagogical
research, and to exchange ideas and information in their latest developments.
The conference will cover a broad range of topics on the relevancy of technology
in mathematical research and teaching. The topics include, but are not limited
- Mathematics for
- Geometry Using
- Computer Algebra
- Internet Technology
- Machine Learning,
Theorem Proving & Games
- Multimedia Distance
- Graphics Calculators

Curriculum Issues on Mathematics with Technology Around the World
This panel discussion
will provide a forum for experts from different parts of the world to
share their opinions on technology use in mathematics curriculum. Issues
such as the effects of technology in lecture delivery, students’
learning environment, examinations and assessment will be discussed. Audience
is encouraged to interact with the panel.
Enabling Technology for Dynamic Mathematics Content Delivery
This special session
will provide an overview of technology that enables the dynamic contents
of the Web. Educators and technologists are faced with a number of issues
in order to do the same for mathematics contents and more. Emerging Web
technology is paving the way for dynamic-mathematics content delivery
as mathematical services. Technology such as MML, XML, & Web Services
will be discussed. Questions & Answers will be provided at the end
of the session.

(for full paper submission)
||All full paper
submissions must be preceded by an abstract submission, and accompanied
with a 'reference number' (e.g., 2003A098) which is assigned when an abstract
submission is accepted via the Web submission link.
Any full paper submission that does not satisfy this requirement will be
automatically dropped from consideration. No acknowledgement will be sent
to the author(s).
format preferred (or virus-free Microsoft Word) during reviewing process.
It is strongly suggested that the manuscript should be prepared according
to the guidelines posted below.
full paper should not exceed ten single-spaced pages. See full paper formatting
copy should be submitted via email to
firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. In the email you must put the
reference number in the subject line (e.g., 2003A123) to ensure propoer
proecessing by our system.
full papers will be put under peer review. Based on recommendations, the
editorial board will notify the author(s) on the acceptance status accordingly.
Accepted papers that meet the formatting guideline given below AND are presented
at ATCM 2003 will be compiled in both the hardcopy and electronic versions
of the Proceedings. The hard copy Proceedings will be distributed to registered
participants at the conference.
Publication Guidelines for Accepted Full

publication in the Proceedings will follow if the paper is presented at
the conference, and the following guidelines must be
followed. Manuscripts that fail to use the following format in your
preparation will not be published.
- Two camera-ready
copies of the manuscript must be submitted on A4 white paper. The manuscript
must be printed with a laser printer of resolution at least at 600 DPI.
Do not staple. Do not fold. Only on-time receipt of
this hard copy manuscript has guarantee of its appearancein the proceedings.
- A soft
copy of the same manuscript in PDF must be sent, with the same deadline
as the hardcopy, to BOTH email accounts: firstname.lastname@example.org & email@example.com;
on-time receipt of this soft copy manuscript, signed copyright statement
and paid registration will ensure the inclusion of the manuscript
in the electronic Proceedings, provided all the other formatting guidelines

is recognized as a science town in Taiwan, it is near Hsin-Chu Science-Based
Industrial Park and it contains many national and private institutes. Chung
Hua University is located in the suburb of Hsin-Chu which is named as Hsian
Shann. Hsin-Chu is 100 km south-west of Taipei and 70 km south of The Chiang
Kai-Shek(CKS) International Airport. We have bus service between The CKS International
Airport and Hsin-Chu. We have also highway bus service between Taipei and Hsin-Chu,
which is very frequent and convenient.
