We have attempted to personalize the Proceedings by presenting a short
biography of every speaker.
There are individual pictures accompanying these
biographies as well as a collection of pictures taken during the conference.
Also, a small segment of each Speaker's talk has been highlighted and
can be viewed as an on-line video clip.
All the Invited articles
in the Proceedings have been ``activated" or ``enlivened".
In addition, so have some of the Associated articles. The degree of activation
has depended on the nature of the material, the interest and skills of
the authors and activators, and the exigencies and (time) constraints of the
process. This process
involves identifying the mathematics within formatted text, and feeding
it to an interactive mathematical platform (like Maple or Mathematica).
The results are
then displayed, allowing the user to manipulate the parameters within the
mathematics to explore the content of the text. In addition, many hypertext
links were included such as historical biographies, details of proofs of cognate results, and scanned images.
