The Internet Accessible Mathematical Computation 2003 Workshop (IAMC 2003)
is being co-organized by Norbert Kajler of Ecole des Mines de Paris (France),
Erica Melis of DFKI Saarbrücken (Germany), Andrew Solomon of IT,
UTS (Australia), and Paul Wang of Kent State Univ. (USA).  The workshop is
part of ISSAC'03 (see www.drexel.edu/issac2003) with the support of ISSAC'03
general chair Hoon Hong of North Carolina State University (USA) and local
arrangements chair Werner Krandick of Drexel University (USA).

IAMC'03 will involve invited talks, contributed papers, and software
demonstrations. This is the fourth IAMC workshop. The first IAMC workshop
was held on 28 July 1999 as part of ISSAC'99; the second IAMC workshop was
held on 22 July 2001 as part of ISSAC'01; the third IAMC workshop was held
on 7 July 2002 as part of ISSAC'02.

The workshop is free for all ISSAC'03 participants.


Everyone with an interest in the many aspects of making mathematical
computation or information accessible on the Web/Internet is welcome
to attend.  Topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:
- Remote access to mathematical software over the Internet.
- Encoding of mathematical expressions (including text-based encoding,
   for E-mail and HTML embedding, and binary-based encoding for efficient
   communication between scientific applications).
- Interoperability between software that create/transform/display
   mathematical expressions (e.g. symbolic, numeric, graphics,
   text-processing packages) via ad hoc communication protocols
   and software architectures.
- Web-based mathematics education.
- Access and interoperability to mathematical knowledge bases.
- Protocols, APIs, URL schemes, metadata, and other mechanisms for system
   interoperability, parallel/distributed computing, and standardization.
- Application of IAMC for practical purposes such as scientific
   publishing and archiving, distributed problem solving, ...

Authors are invited to send a one or two-pages abstract in PDF to the
organizers by 27 May 2003. Submissions will be reviewed by the workshop
organizers based on relevance to the workshop, originality, and scientific
interest.  Authors will be notified by E-mail around 7 June 2003 so please
include a contact E-mail address in the paper.  The full-length paper (in PDF)
is due 20 July 2003.


The Workshop proceedings will be published on the Web and maintained by
the Institute for Computational Mathematics (ICM), Kent State Univ.


If you have an IAMC related system to demonstrate, please let us know
as early as possible (by 16 June 2003), your name and affiliation,
the name of the system(s) to demo, and your equipment request.
We'll then announce all the demos on the IAMC website.


      27 May 2003 --- Deadline for submitting papers/abstracts
      7 June 2003 --- Notification of acceptance and Call for Participation
     16 June 2003 --- Deadline for submitting software demos
     20 July 2003 --- Full-length paper due
    7 August 2003 --- IAMC workshop


The IAMC Workshop is part of ISSAC'2003.  Participants should register
with the ISSAC'2003 conference and select the IAMC workshop.
Although we encourage everyone to attend the complete ISSAC + IAMC
sessions, a reduced fee (US$65) is available for those attending IAMC only.

Information for travel and accomodation (at conference rates) are available
from the ISSAC03 site.  It is advisable to make hotel reservations early.
The student dorms are easy to afford and close to the meeting.
The hotel is not obligated to extend the same discount for ISSAC to IAMC-only
participants.  Participants may wish to explore other hotels close to Drexel
and look at a more general listing of hotels in Philadelphia.
