                          Fields of Interest
The main purpose of ISAMA 99 is to bring together persons interested
in relating mathematics with the arts and architecture. This includes
teachers, architects, artists, mathematicians, scientists and
engineers. As in previous conferences, the objective is to share
information and discuss common interests. Hopefully new ideas and
partnerships will emerge which can enrich interdisciplinary education.
In particular, we believe it is important to begin interdisciplinary
education at an early age so one component of ISAMA 99 will be teacher
workshops for K-12 in addition to college level courses.

ISAMA will focus on the following fields related to mathematics:
Architecture, Computer Design and Fabrication in The Arts and
Architecture, Geometric Art and Origami, Music, Sculpture and
Tessellations and Tilings. These fields include graphics interaction,
CAD systems, algorithms, fractals and graphics within mathematical
software (Maple, Derive, Mathematics, etc.) There will also be
associated teacher workshops.

                           Call for Papers
Papers are invited on the topics outlined and other topics which fall
within the general scope of the Conference.

Abstracts should be submitted to the Conference secretariat by
December 15, 1998. Abstracts should not be longer than 300 words,
contain a list of keywords, and clearly state the methodology,
purpose, results and conclusion of the final paper. All lectures will
be in English. Participants may wish to give their presentation in the
form of slides and/or video. The final paper should contain
explanatory text and a selection of images.
