Purpose of ATCM'99
ATCM'99 will provide an interdisciplinary forum for researchers and
teachers in education, mathematics and mathematical sciences, together with
researchers and developers of computer technology, to present their results in
using computer technology and exchange ideas and information in their latest
development. The conference will cover a broad range of topics on the
relevancy of technology in mathematical research and teaching. These include
but not limited to:
 computeraided teaching in mathematical sciences
 computer algebra (systems) in research and teaching
 multimedia and distance learning
 graphing calculators
 mathematical research and teaching using technology
 numerical analysis
The conference will consist of plenary sessions and special session by
invited speakers, parallel sessions by contributed papers, and tutorial
sessions on software and hardware relevant to mathematical research and
teaching. Books, software and hardware may also be on display.

Guangzhou Normal University (GNU)
is now one of the leading universities in Guangzhou. It is located in the
southern city of Guangzhou, adjacent to Hong Kong and Macao. With a strong
staff and complete disciplines, GNU is dedicated to training qualified
personnel for the elementary education and the social and economic development
of the city.
GNU is easily accessible by all means of transportation. During ATCM
'99, GNU will provide a shuttle bus service between the campus and the
Baiyun International Airport and the Guangzhou Railway Station.
We can arrange the following accommodations for the participants:
Guest House 
US$22 per night 
Academic Exchange Center, GNU (3 Stars) 
US$35 per night 
China Hotel (5 Stars) 
US$148 per night 
*All the rates given are on the basis of a standard hotel room with two
separate beds. If you want to share a room, each of the roommates pays
half of the price. Price does not include breakfast. Cost of breakfast
is very affordable though.
** Early registration is desirable, for it might be difficult to book
a hotel room during the Christmas vacation.
