MathML Kickoff Conference

"MathML and Technologies for Math on the Web" October 20-21,
2000 Urbana-Champaign, IL


The first-ever MathML Conference will be held October 20-21,
2000, on the campus of the University of Illinois at
Urbana-Champaign. The conference is being sponsored by
Wolfram Research, IBM, the AMS (American Mathematical
Society), Waterloo Maple, and the W3C (World Wide Web
