The Joint Meeting of
and the 6th Annual Bridges Conference

The International Society of the Arts, Mathematics, and Architecture
(ISAMA) holds an interdisciplinary conference each summer.
In July 2003, ISAMA'03 will be run jointly with the
and will take place in Granada, Spain.
The conference will be followed by a one-day special conference tour
The Beauty and Mathematics of the Alhambra on July 26.
Conference topics include:
- Mathematical Visualization
- Mathematics and Music
- Computer Generated Art
- Symmetry Structures
- Mathematics and Architecture
- Tessellations and Tilings
- Aesthetic Connections between Math and Humanities
- Geometric Art in Two and Three Dimensions
- Geometry in Quilting
The conference will feature presentations of regular, plenary, and
short papers. These will all be selected from the pool of submitted
papers. Regular and plenary presentations require a paper of about 8
pages; short presentations require an extended abstract up to 2 pages long.
The regular presentations will be given about a 30-minute time slot. The
best papers, or the ones that promise to appeal to the largest part of
the audience, will be selected for plenary presentations in a 45-minute
time slot. Short presentations will be given 20-minute slots.
There will also be a few hands-on workshops as in previous years.
Conference Art Exhibit
In conjunction with the meeting will be the exhibit "Mathematical Connections
in Visual Art", to be held at the University of Granada's Art Gallery.
Please submit slides or photographs of artworks for possible
inclusion to Nat Friedman (address below), the curator of the exhibit, by
April 1. Include dimensions of artworks specifying inches or centimeters. The
number of accepted works will depend on the exhibit space available. The art
exhibit participants may submit an abstract (not more than 1 page) if they wish,
due by May 1, for inclusion in the Conference Proceedings.
Accepted artworks can be shipped to Granada or hand-delivered. All possible
care will be taken in exhibiting accepted artworks. However, the Conference will
not insure artworks and cannot be responsible for any accidental damage. Artists
are also responsible for picking up their artworks after the Conference. The
Conference cannot be responsible for any artworks not picked up.
There will also be tables available for display space as at previous
conferences. Since we expect a large attendance, individual display space will
have to be limited. Please inform Friedman if you will need display space
and what you plan to display.
The conference will feature a poster session. The poster session participants
will present their materials such as diagrams, pictures, data, and narrative
text on poster boards (approximate size of a poster board is 24 by 32 inches;
however, there is not any size requirement in this regard).
Please submit a description of your poster for possible inclusion to Carlo
Séquin (address below), the curator of the poster session, by April 1.
Include dimensions of posters specifying inches or centimeters. The number
of accepted posters will depend on the exhibit space available. The poster
session participants may submit an abstract (not more than 1 page) if they
wish, due by May 1, for inclusion in the Conference Proceedings.
The conference will feature presentations of regular, plenary, and short papers.
These will all be selected from the pool of submitted papers. Regular and
plenary presentations require a paper of about 8 pages; short presentations
require a 1-2 page extended abstract. The regular presentations will be given
about a 30-minute time slot. The best papers, or the ones that promise to appeal
to the largest part of the audience, will be selected for plenary presentations
in a 45-minute time slot. Short presentations will be given a 20-minute slot.
The conference also plans to offer a few hands-on workshops as in its past
conferences, as well as a visit to the Alhambra, and possibly yet another tour
of a nearby towns or villages.
A volume of refereed proceedings will be published and distributed
at the conference. There is tight and firm schedule as follows:
- February 1, 2003
- Deadline for paper submissions for review.
Submit five copies to Reza Sarhangi (address below).
- April 1, 2003
- Notification of acceptance of papers.
- May 1, 2003
- Deadline for preparation of final camera-ready manuscript. Send two copies.
Papers published in the proceedings must follow the specified format and the
guidelines for the preparation of the camera-ready manuscript. These
instructions can be found online in PDF format
Papers should ideally be 8 pages long, but can be extended to 10 or 12 pages if
the content warrants the extra length. Authors will be charged 50 Euros for each
2-page extension. Papers that deviate from the specified style will not be
included in the proceedings. It is strongly suggested
that even the first submission of the paper be as close to the
recommended preparation guidelines as possible, so that the reviewers can
judge more easily what the final version will look like.
There is a registration fee of 50 Euros for each individual conference day,
or a fee of 130 Euros for the entire conference, plus 30 Euros for the
Proceedings. Please print out the Registration
Form, fill it in, and return it to Javier Barallo.
In addition to the three-day conference, a one-day guided tour of the Alhambra
and of the old parts of Granada has been scheduled for Saturday July 26, 2003.
The cost for this tour, including the shuttle as well as lunch is 60 Euros per
person. There will be several stops for people to purchase food, drinks, and
souvenirs. Please note that we cannot guarantee this program for all
participants. We will use "First paid, first served" rule in this regard.
There is a possibility that we will schedule a second tour to visit a nearby
town on Sunday, July 27. Information about such a tour will be announced when
it is available.
