Online registration will be available at around 1st of October. 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 the submission site is not functioning, send in your submission by email to the co-chairs.

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 atcminc@yahoo.com (emails will be checked at least once a week).

We are collecting tidbits of your experiences with past ATCM's - either it is a few paragraphs or pictures or videos, please end them to me (atcminc@yahoo.com) for inclusion in some form for distribution in ATCM 2005. Please set the subject line of your email to include at least 'ATCM Tidbits' in it - last date for contribution is September 1.

Call for Papers

We like to invite you to submit original and unpublished work to the conference for review. Any type of submission (e.g., abstracts, full papers, tutorials, invited paper, plenary speeches, etc.) to the conference 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 consideration.


Abstract submission is only accepted via the Web. Each successful submission will be assigned a reference number (e.g., 2005A108). This number will be used in all future correspondence with the editors. The submission link is at http://www.iwargroup.com/~atcminc/ if the DNS (Domain Name Service) is not working properly for some reason.

Only text (simple or HTML) submission is accepted.

If 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 2005' as part or whole of the subject line of your email - email filtering may block your incoming submission) 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 words. Again, if the submission site is not functioning, send in your submission by email to the co-chairs.

Please direct any questions on the submission to the co-chairs (please make sure 'ATCM 2005' is part of or a whole of your email subject line).

Full Papers

Once your abstract has been approved by the IPC, you have the option to submit a full paper for that abstract. The full paper will be reviewed by peers and IPC for consideration to appear in the Proceedings of the conference. Submission of a full paper should only be in PDF and also must be submitted via the Web (If you need help in converting a Microsoft Word document to PDF, please email to either IPC co-chair). You will find the full paper submission link once log on to the ATCM conference submission site (as you did when you submit your abstract). Here is a general process for submitted full papers of ATCM 2005

  1. Each full paper must have, in addition to the paper content, an abstract with no author information (just a Title) and be submitted no later than July 15, 2005.
  2. Each full paper will be reviewed and recommendation will be sent to the author(s) before or no later than September 15, 2005
  3. Each accepted full paper must follow the Proceedings publication guidelines (see below), along with paid registration and conference presentation before it will appear in the hardcopy Proceedings.
  4. Each full paper must not be longer than 10 single-spaced pages of A4 size.

Copyright of the full paper must be assigned to ATCM, Inc. A form will be availble for you to download soon.

Formatting Guidelines for Proceedings

For accepted full papers (that have not been published elsewhere, or available in a website), publication in the Proceedings will follow if and only 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 1200 DPI. Do not staple. Do not fold. Only on-time receipt of this hard copy manuscript has guarantee of its appearance in the Proceedings. The hardcopies must be postmarked by the date specified if the acceptance email along with the postal address to which the full papers are sent.
  • A soft copy of the same manuscript in PDF must be sent, with the same deadline as the hardcopy, to BOTH email accounts in your notification email (e.g., atcminc@yahoo.com); on-time receipt of this soft copy manuscript, signed copyright statement (paper copyright | abstract copyright) 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. A sample paper in Microsoft Word is provided; it can be used as a template.

  • No page number should be printed. Default font used must be Times New Roman. 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., 2005P100).
  • Paper title: 20 pt Times New Roman, bold, centered
  • Author's name: 14 pt Times New Roman Italics, centered
  • Author's affiliations: in 12 pt Times New Roman, centered
  • Author’s email address, in 12 pt Times New Roman, centered, must be included right below the author's name.
  • Abstract: each manuscript must have an abstract, in 10 pt Times Roman, justified single-line spacing
  • Section headings: 14 pt Times New Roman Bold, left-justified
  • Subsection headings: 12 pt Times New 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 or 8.27" x 11.69").
  • Left and right margins must be set at 2 cm or 0.8";
  • Top and bottom margins must be set at 3.2 cm or 1.26";
  • 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. Place all the figures and tables in the center of the page.
  • References must be cited properly in the text of the article (it is very unlikely that an accepted full paper that has no references)
  • Acknowledgements, if any, should be added just before the references.
  • Paper length is limited to a maximum of 10 pages. A fee will be charged for any paper that exceeds the paper length limit.
  • Keywords are not needed.
Posters Session

Conference 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.

Detailed 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 to make the posters readable at a distance of 1.5 metres. Poster presenters should consider using both textual and visual means of presentation in their posters.

Abstracts for posters should be submitted for review by email to Professor LEW, Hee-chan at hclew@knue.ac.kr with a subject heading "ATCM2005: Poster Abstract" before 15 June 2005. The following information should be included in all poster submissions:
* Poster Title
* Authors
* Affiliation and address
* Email address
* Abstract
