History

The Math on the Web Pavilion began in 2003 as a cooperative effort of Design Science, MacKichan Software, Maplesoft (then Waterloo Maple), and Wolfram Research, and has continued every year at JMM since 2003. Participants have varied over the years, with a slate of commercial and non-commercial representatives presenting 20-minute sessions throughout the day in the exhibit hall.

JMM 2008

This year, the Pavilion will be held in the exhibit hall in Booths 130-231. Much has changed over the years under the category of "math on the web". Stay up-to-date on the latest by joining us for the sessions listed below. New in 2008: During time periods when there are no live presenters, we will be showing videotaped sessions from the 2007 TeX Users Group Annual Meeting, held July 18-20 in San Diego.

For more information about any of the sessions, or about the Math on the Web Pavilion in general, please contact Bob Mathews.
