in Mathematics: Engaging Learners, Empowering Teachers and Enabling Research"
is little doubt that technology has made an impact on the teaching and Mathematics.
In this conference, we shall go beyond justifying the use of technology in Mathematics
to discuss and examine the best practices of applying technology in the teaching
and learning of Mathematics and in Mathematics research. In particular, the
conference will focus on how technology can be exploited to enrich and enhance
Mathematics learning, teaching and research at all levels.
Researchers, mathematicians, educators and teachers are invited to share their
knowledge in the area of using technology to engage learners and empower teachers
of Mathematics, or enable research in any field of Mathematics or Mathematics
conference will cover a broad range of topics on the application and use of
technology in Mathematics research and teaching. These include, but are not
- Mathematics for
- Geometry Using
- Internet and
Web Technology for Mathematics

Curriculum and Learning: Issues and Concerns that began in ATCM
We will continue
the discussion, from a global perspective, on the two topics brought forth in
ATCM 2003 initially. Experts in the topics will be invited to participate together
to present their views. In here, we will reiterate the sessions' goals and further
details will be available as soon as they are organized:
Curriculum issues and concerns on mathematics with technology - a global perspective

fee of US$180 (S$300). Valid student ID or confirmation letter will be required.
registration is now available. If you are an author, you might already notice
the registration options when you log on to ATCM submission site, otherwise,
logon at the submission site
and you will find the registration information.
If you are a non-author, you would go to the same site
to register online for the conference. You will first 'register' your personal
information, then login with registered information. Please direct your questions
about registration to firstname.lastname@example.org.
are accepting two general methods of registration fee payment. One is for those
participants that can pay by a personal cheque in Singapore dollars, and the
other method is either by credit cards issued in any country, including Singapore,
to be charged in US dollars, or bank drafts in US dollars.
submission (e.g., abstracts, full papers, tutorials, invited paper, plenary
speeches, etc.) to the conference (other than for posters
sessions) must begin with an abstract submission. All abstract submissions
are only accepted via the Web. Each submission will be reviewed and the author(s)
will be notified of recommendation by the International Program Committee. Only
scholarly work that has not been published elsewhere should be submitted for
submission is only accepted via the Web. Each successful submission
will be assigned a reference number (e.g., 2004A108).
This number will be used in all future correspondence with the editors. The
submission link is at here.
Only text (simple or HTML) submission is accepted.
there are mathematical symbols that cannot be accommodated by HTML/MML, you
complete your online submission with "Abstract in PDF" as
the only content of the abstract body. Once that is successfully done, you then
submit an PDF version of the abstract to the
editor (with 'ATCM 2004' as part or whole of the subject line of your email)
with the proper reference number. No published work should be submitted.
Accepted abstract, with paid registration fee, will guarantee a presentation
slot at the conference program. Each abstract should have around 250-500

or virus-free Microsoft Word, and also must be submitted via the Web.
You will find the full paper submission link once log on to the ATCM conference
(as you did when you submit your abstract). Here is a general process for submitted

participants are invited to submit proposals of posters for display in the poster
exhibition area. We encourage this form of participation as a means of presenting
projects that use technology in both mathematical research and mathematics education.
Proposals from students are welcome too. Presentation of posters will be scheduled
in parallel along with other paper presentations.
information about the size and format of posters will be given when a poster
has been accepted. Presenters should use a font of at least 24 points so as

is a small nation situated at one of the most important crossroads of the world.
The country is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city state where tradition and modernity,
East and West, meet and mingle most agreeably and harmoniously. When you meet
