What's New in Mathematica 9

Curious about Mathematica 9? See it live during this free Wolfram seminar. Our expert will introduce you to new features in usability, computation, data manipulation and visualisation. With a whole array of new ideas and application areas, Mathematica 9 will equip you with the tools you need, whatever your field, background or experience, to solve an ever-larger variety of problems. Seats are limited, so register soon.

This free evening seminar will comprise:

  • Tea and coffee on arrival
  • Presentation on Mathematica 9 (please read more below)
  • Q&A and networking opportunity

Webcast access:

If you are unable to attend this seminar in person, you can still join us online by logging in to 7city's learning webex. Please still submit your registration to be able to access the session electronically. You will be emailed the session URL and password, however, you must mention in the Comments field on the registration form that this is your preferred method of attending this event.

Who should attend:

  • Those with an interest in finance, engineering, data science, software engineering etc.
  • Technology strategists wanting to know what’s possible now in computation
  • Existing users of Mathematica who want to see the latest features and additions
  • Beginners wanting to get up to speed with Wolfram technologies
  • Nonusers wanting to find the best technology for their next project


  • New Software Development
    Mathematica 9 provides an extended range of development opportunities, with new asynchronous client-side web access allowing AJAX-style programming, the ability to interact directly with web APIs, support for hierarchical datasets through the HDF5 file format and extensive support for business dates and calendar-based computation.
  • Predictive Interface and Units
    Get a look at the new interface paradigm and systemwide units support, the next-computation Suggestions Bar, context-sensitive Input Assistant and units features, from unit conversion to dimensional analysis.
  • Social Networks and Data Science
    Learn about Mathematica 9's new social network analysis capabilities with built-in access to social media data, plus other graph and network enhancements. Mathematica 9 introduces new computational features in data science built from new, flexible data structures allowing for random simulations—including both survival and reliability analyses.
  • Data Manipulation and Visualisation
    Introducing the new features for image and signal processing, with the ability to interact with and analyze volumetric data. Overhauled interactive gauges and systemwide legends support radically improve the ability to create easy-to-digest interactive elements and visualisation.
  • R Integration
    With Mathematica 9 you are now able to integrate the open-source statistical environment R directly into your Mathematica workflow. RLink allows R code to be written, evaluated and output from within Mathematica notebooks—providing the powerful visualisation and interactive capabilities of Mathematica to all R users.

...and much more.
