Short lecture: 25 minutes (with questions and answers)

Lecture: 55 minutes (with questions and answers)

Workshop in computer lab: 90 minutes (with questions and answers)



If you want to deliver a (short) lecture or a workshop, please send an extended abstract (100 to 500 words) using the abstract submission form before March 31. You will be informed about the referees decision before April 11.

If you will send an abstract earlier (in February) we will try to answer as soon as possible.

In case of abstract acceptance the lecturers should provide the full paper for the conference.


Scope of conferences:

The TIME conferences - founded by the ACDCA (Austrian Centre for Didactics of Computer Algebra) - deal primarily with didactical issues connected with the use of technology.
The conferences for CAS in Education & Research are geared towards exploring the use of CAS software and  symbolic calculators in education (at the high school, lycée, college and university levels) and towards using these tools in programming and research.
These conferences are open to users of all symbolic/numeric systems (ie. not restricted to symbolic calculation as described). All interesting uses of technology related to mathematics education or innovative pedagogical approaches can form the basis of a conference lecture.

Topics include:
