**TUTORIALS**

**INTRODUCTION**

There is wide range of mathematical software available for computation and visualization in geometry, ranging from specialized free programs to commercial software like Mathematica, Maple, and Matlab. Many geometers already use such software for teaching purposes. The purpose of these tutorials is to encourage more geometers in Japan to use software in their research. Each tutorial features demonstrations by specialists and hand-on practical work, with a very high tutor:participant ratio.
