ISAMA 2000

The Second Annual Conference of the International Society
of the Arts, Mathematics and Architecture
University at Albany
Albany, New York

June 24 - 28, 2000

ISAMA is an organization devoted to the purpose of furthering interdisciplinary education relating the arts, mathematics, and architecture.

ISAMA 2000 brought together people interested in these areas, including teachers, architects, artists, mathematicians, scientists and engineers. As in previous conferences, the objective was to share information and discuss common interests. In particular, we believe it is important to begin interdisciplinary education at an early age so one component of ISAMA 2000 was teacher workshops for K-12.
