*Overview:*

Education has become one of the fastest growing application areas for computers
in general and computer algebra in particular. Computer Algebra Systems (CAS)
make for powerful teaching and learning tools within mathematics, physics,
chemistry, biology, economics, etc. Among them are:

(a) the commercial "heavy weights" such as Casio ClassPad 330, Derive, Magma,
Maple, Mathematica, MuPAD, TI NSpire CAS, and

(b) the free software/open source systems such as Axiom, Euler, Fermat,
wxMaxima, Reduce, and the rising stars such as GeoGebra, Sage, SymPy and Xcas
(the swiss knife for mathematics).

The goal of this session is to exchange ideas, discuss classroom experiences, and to explore significant issues relating to CAS tools/use within education. Subjects of interest for this session will include new CAS-based teaching/learning strategies, curriculum changes, new support materials, assessment practices from all scientific fields, and experiences of joint use of applied mathematics and CAS including dynamic geometry.

We emphasize that all levels of education are welcome, from high school to university, and that all domains are welcome, including teacher training, engineer training, etc.

If you are interested in proposing a talk, please send an abstract to Michael Wester. Please use this LaTeX template for your abstract and send both the LaTeX source and a compiled PDF version. We suggest that abstracts be at least half a page including references.
