OrigamiUSA announces the
3rd International Meeting of Origami Science, Math, and Education
March 9-11, 2001
Update: 3OSME has come and gone, and all reports indicate that it was a great success!
There was a great write-up of the 3OSME conference in the October 2001 issue of SIAM News!
In 1989 and 1994 the first two meetings devoted to origami
research and applications in math and science were held in
Italy and Japan, respectively. OrigamiUSA is proud to
sponsor the third such meeting, to be held at Asilomar in
Monterey, CA on March 9-11, 2001.
Features of the Program
Concurrent Session Tracks
Mathematics of OrigamiThis track focuses on research in the underlying mathematics involved in paperfolding. Topics may include mathematical modeling of the paperfolding process, geometric constructions via paperfolding, intrinsic geometry of origami, modular origami, or paperfoldng sequences, just to name some examples.
Scientific Applications of OrigamiAny reports on uses ot paper or surface folding in scientific applications are welcome in this track. Possible topics are the modeling and use of paper crumpling, folding processes observed in nature, mechanical applications of paperfolding, and architecture. Any other connections between scientific areas and orgigami are welcome.
Educational Uses of OrigamiOrigami has become an increasingly popular tool to use in primary, secondary, and college education. This track invites educators to present their insights and pedagogy on incorporating paperfolding in classes in all levels. Cross-curricular uses of origami are welcome, but of particular interest are ways to use origami to teach mathematics and science.

The deadline for submitting abstracts has passed.
(Note: Even though the deadline has passed, if you would like to give a talk at 3OSME please contact Thomas Hull. If we have room in the schedule we'd be happy to consider you.)
Exhibition and Poster DisplayParticipants are invited to bring origami works and/or informational posters on topics related to origami science, math, and education for display during the meeting. If you would like to have a display area reserved for you, please indicate this when you register.
RegistrationRegistration forms can be found at http://www.ifold.org.
ProceedingsPapers of talks presented at 3OSME and other origami work in math, science, and education will be compiled in a proceedings book for the conference. This will be published after the meeting. Visit this web page in the future for more information. The preliminary deadline for submission of papers for the proceedings is May 1, 2001.
