Requirements of artwork for exhibition

Image of artwork (300 dpi): vismath_SURNAME.jpg
Short description of mathematical and artistical content (max. 1000 words): vismathexh_SURNAME_desc.doc
Short curriculum vitae (300 Words in phrases): vismath_SURNAME_cv.doc
Filled template with signature in a scanned file: vismath_SURNAME_templ.pdf

The transfer of all requested Information should be finished until the 1st of September to the following contact:

The exhibition will be a visual collection of possible solutions of mathematical contents, such as

  • experiments with perspective,
  • visualisations of algorithms,
  • two- or three-dimensional models of geometrical contents, or
  • artwork that is inspired by mathematical contents
  • etc.

A jury consisting of representatives from the University of Applied Arts Vienna and research partners will select artworks which will be exhibited in form of a multimedia installation at Belgrade Metropolitan University. Participation includes the agreement that photos & texts of the artists and those which were produced during the VISMATH exhibition in Belgrade 2014 might be published on the VISMATH Website and other related to the research project and in printed proceedings.

The artists will be listed in the program of the conference.

Requirements for educational toolkits

For the Submission please use the template for classroom examples.
Filled template send in a separate file: vismath_SURNAME_edutool.doc
Filled template should be send until the 30th of August to the following contact:

During the conference there will be the possibility to offer workshops as “testing experiments”. Please do not forget to inform us whether you are planning to present your toolkit - or not!

A jury consisting of representatives from the research partners will select educational toolkits, which will be presented online via this homepage.

The selected submissions will be presented as short presentations on the conference and published in a special issue of the electronic journal "Visual Mathematics" published by the Mathematical Institute.

Participation includes the agreement that photos & texts of the educational toolkit designersmight be published on the VISMATH Website and others related to the research project and in printed proceedings.
