Links: CMTC+DP@CICM 2010 and the talk schedule.

    Su Wei's post conference report--- I come back to Lanzhou from CICM2010 conference yesterday. It is an active and very good conference. Many researchers on mathematics knowledge management (MKM), computer algebra (CA), computer-based mathematics education attended the conference. It's very good to intercommunicate with them. I also met many friends of yours during this conference. Prof. James Davenport, Dongming Wang, Paul Libbrecht, Stephen Watt want me to say hello to you for them. The attachment are two pictures (one, two) which were taken in the conference.

    Su Wei and Prof. Dongdai Lin also met with Prof. Norbert Kajler in Paris. Here is a picture.
