The Wolfram team would like to thank all of the attendees who participated in the WMVC 2012 and helped make it such a success!
Event videos, presentation notebooks, and collateral are available on the resources tab.
Again, thank you for your support, and we hope to see you at our next event.


Is this conference the same as the Wolfram Technology Conference?

No. The Wolfram Mathematica Virtual Conference is a free, half-day event that will include talks with Q&A and access to virtual networking. The Wolfram Technology Conference in Champaign, Illinois is a fee-based, three-day event that will include 100+ talks and hands-on workshops, in-person networking, and access to Wolfram developers. Depending on your schedule, ability to travel, and learning preferences, we have a way to help you get the most out of Mathematica.

Who is this conference for?

Everybody—from Mathematica non-users to new users looking to expand their Mathematica skills to experienced users looking for specific solutions. The conference tracks cover diverse fields and applications across experience levels.

Attend if you are interested in:

  • Learning about Mathematica for the first time
  • Expanding your knowledge beyond your current uses of Mathematica
  • Getting more information before attending the Wolfram Technology Conference

How does the Wolfram Mathematica Virtual Conference work?

Once you've registered, you will receive a confirmation email with access details. Reminders will be sent prior to the event. On the day of the conference, you log in to the event's virtual environment. Much like attending an in-person conference, you can attend talks, including Q&A; interact with Wolfram staff and other attendees; browse related solutions; and download useful resources.

Will there be an opportunity to ask questions at the conference?

Yes. The last 10 minutes of each talk are reserved for Q&A. You can submit questions via chat during the talk.

How much does the conference cost?

The Wolfram Mathematica Virtual Conference is free to attend.

What time is the conference?

The conference will take place in two sessions to best fit your schedule:

Tuesday, September 25 from noon–4pm Eastern Daylight Time

Tuesday, September 25 from 8pm–midnight Eastern Daylight Time

In what languages will content be available?

All talks and materials will be available in English only.

What if I miss a talk or want to attend two concurrent sessions?

Following the conference, all talks will be available on demand.

Do I need to have Mathematica installed in order to attend?

You do not need Mathematica in order to attend the conference.
