July 1st  -  5th, 2014         Krems, Austria


In 1992, ACDCA (Austrian Center for Didactics of Computer Algebra) began a conference series focusing on the use of symbolic calculation software in mathematics education. The first international conference dedicated to the use of the symbolic calculation software Derive took place in 1994. After that time, ACDCA and Derive conferences (to which the TI-92 symbolic calculator was added in 1996) were held in alternating years. In 2002, the two conferences were merged into one for the first time, in Vienna, Austria. In 2012, Derive conferences were renamed as "Conferences for CAS in Education & Research".

Scope of conferences:

The TIME conferences - founded by ACDCA (Austrian Centre for Didactics of Computer Algebra) - deal primarily with didactical issues connected with the use of technology. The conferences for CAS in Education & Research are geared towards exploring the use of CAS software and  symbolic calculators in education (at the high school, lycée, college and university levels) and towards using these tools in programming and research. These conferences are open to users of all symbolic/numeric systems (ie. not restricted to symbolic calculation as described). All interesting uses of technology related to mathematics education or innovative pedagogical approaches can form the basis of a conference lecture.
