"Technology Connecting Mathematics"

The 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 to:

  • Mathematics for Information Technology
  • Geometry Using Technology
  • Computer Algebra
  • Internet Technology for Mathematics
  • Machine Learning, Theorem Proving & Games
  • Multimedia Distance Learning
  • Graphics Calculators
  • Mathematical Research & Teaching Using Technology
  • Physics Research & Teaching Using Technology
  • Applications in Mathematical Sciences Using Technology
  • Mathematical Software and Tools on WWW
  • Assessment of Implementation of Technology in Education
  • Integrating Technology into Mathematics Education
  • Mathematics Learning & Cognition
  • Childhood Mathematics Learning

Special Session I: 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.

Special Session II: 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.

(Copyright - Full Paper)(Copyright - Abstract) 

August 15, 2003 (for full paper submission)
Requirement: 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 PDF 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.

Each full paper should not exceed ten single-spaced pages. See full paper formatting guidelines below.

Where to Submit An electronic copy should be submitted via email to talwis@selu.edu and sungchi@atcminc.com. In the email you must put the reference number in the subject line (e.g., 2003A123) to ensure propoer proecessing by our system.
Process All 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 Papers


Full papers will be reviewed. For reviewed and accepted full papers, 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: sungchi@atcminc.com & schu@rni.net; 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 are met.


Each manuscript must meet the following guidelines before it will be processed for inclusion in the Proceedings. Manuscripts that do not meet these guidelines will be returned and must be appropriately modified before the time deadline for camera-ready submission.

  • No page number should be printed. Instead, page numbers must be written using a soft lead pencil on the back of each page (on both hard copies submitted) along with your paper reference number (e.g., 2003P100).
  • Manuscript must have an abstract.
  • Paper title: 20 pt Times Roman, centered
  • Authors' names and affiliations: 14 pt Times Roman, centered
  • Section headings: 14 pt Times Roman Bold, left-justified
  • Subsection headings: 12 pt Times Roman Bold, left-justified
  • Body text: 12 pt Times Roman, justified single-line spacing
  • Margins must be set based on A4 paper size (210 x 297 mm).
    Left and right margins must be set at 2 cm;
    top and bottom margins must be set at 3.2 cm;
    any text or figure that appears outside of this margin is not printable, thus the manuscript cannot be included for printing.
  • Tables and Figures must be properly captioned and numbered. These should be placed as close as practicable to the first reference in the text. About 10mm should be left clear above and below each figure and table. For Figures, the caption should appear at the foot of the figure. For Tables, the caption should appear immediately above the table.
  • References must be cited properly in the text of the article.
  • Paper length is limited to a maximum of 10 pages. A fee will be charged for any paper that exceeds the paper length limit.
