Computer Algebra in Mathematics Education (CAME) Mini Symposium

In this CAME Mini-symposium, we would like to review and discuss the work carried out during the past two decades on the role of CAS and its research in mathematics education. Our Keynote Speakers have offered us to deliver a stimulating talk and paper in this area. We aim to discuss this topic as well as make preparations for a regular CAME event in 2013.
