Call for Papers - The Electronic Mathematician
- Lots of hypertext & HTML
- Lots of graphics - extensive use of colour, complicated images in PostScript or other formats, MPEG, and Java
- Documentation and distribution of software
- Technical discussions of mathematical graphics
In the near future Sun Microsystems, Inc. will designate the
Mathematics Department of the University of British Columbia as one of

We propose to publish stuff in our journal that is
In the long run we will probably narrow our areas of interest, but for the moment almost anything fitting this description, or perhaps anything else you can come up with, will be OK. We imagine that most contributions will be of an expository nature, but that is not a requirement. The single major restriction we have in mind is that stuff should be as portable as possible - documentation of all kinds must be readable from one of the major browsers, for example. As far as software is concerned, we are not at the moment too concerned about what platforms it will run on, but precise documentation and specs are extremely important. If your choice of platform is narrow, then the documentation ought to be good enough for someone to implement it on other platforms. Submissions will be refereed in the usual way as far as mathematical content is concerned, and we ourselves will try to offer technical advice as problems arise. We have included you in a small list of mathematicians we believe to have an interest in such a medium of publication. We would like to urge you to think seriously about contributing an article to one of our early issues. If you are interested, or just have questions, please write back to us. Bill Casselman Djun Kim |
