Major VBM Presentations

There was a presentation of this program at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Berlin on Friday August 21st, 1998 in the Special Session on Mathematical Software. An HTML version of the presentation is available online.

There is also a conference presentation for the 3rd SOS Workshop
