China Mathematica Tour 2009 Showcases Revolutionary Advances in Technical Computing
March 18, 2009--Ahead of the release of Mathematica 7 Simplified Chinese
Edition later this year, Wolfram Research today announced plans to
showcase the software's powerful new capabilities during the China
Mathematica Tour 2009, which runs April 19 to 28.
With stops in Shanghai, Dalian, Shenyang, Harbin, Beijing, Guangzhou,
and Shenzhen, the China Mathematica Tour 2009 will give both experts and
beginners a unique opportunity to experience the powerful advancements
of Mathematica 7, including integrated image processing, parallel
high-performance computing, and on-demand data. The tour will also show
Mathematica's impact on a wide range of areas, from engineering and
finance to research and education.
Each half-day event features talks by Roger Germundsson, Director of
Research and Development at Wolfram Research, and local Mathematica
experts, who will demonstrate Mathematica's exciting new technologies,
help attendees learn how to incorporate Mathematica 7 into their work,
and share information about Wolfram Research's exclusive programs for
Mathematica users in China. Anyone interested in science, engineering,
finance, research, or education is invited to attend the free events.
Space is limited and a high turnout is expected at each venue, so early
registration is recommended. Registration details and a complete
schedule are available online.
To arrange media interviews, please email Xiang Wang.
