There will be a Conference on Axiom on April 22, 2005 at the City
College of New York. The focus of the conference will be to
demonstrate the power and scope of Axiom to a general scientific
audience. The conference is being hosted by CAISS, the Center for
Algorithmic and Interactive Scientific Software. Timothy Daly, a
senior research scientist at CAISS and a Research Associate in the
Computer Science Department of CCNY has been heavily involved in the
development of AXIOM over many years.
Axiom, developed by IBM and released as open source software by NAG,
has now been rebuilt by many developers into its original form
together with a new version for Windows. Preceding the conference, on
April 21st, will be a "sprint" day devoted to defining future
directions and a marathon programming session in the CAISS Open
Software Lab. Everyone is encouraged to participate. Help will be
available for new developers.
The Acting Dean of Engineering, Joe Barba and the Dean of Science,
Maria Tamargo, are sponsoring the conference, which is also supported
by the National Science Foundation. Further funding has been made
available by the Chancellor of the City University of New York, Dr.
Matthew Goldstein and the Provost of the City College of New York,
Zeev Dagan, for both travel and accommodation for some participants
and attendees of one or other or both events.
Details of the talks on April 22nd and the get-together on April 21st
will be posted on the CAISS web-site, www.caissny.org in the next few
