Conference location

This paper will describe how XML and web technologies can be combined with Mathematica in order to provide innovative solutions for computation. It will pay particular attention to the use of MathML, both as a way to render mathematical and technical information in a web browser and as an interchange format between different computer applications. The use of SVG to generate high-quality graphical images that support dynamic animations will also be discussed. A final section will discuss the use of XML as a general data format for exchange between applications that communicate over the web.
