The 15 conference papers in this report address a variety of issues such as computer applications in mechanics and optics, three-dimensional representation in physics teaching, computers in the physics laboratory, information technologies, the perceptual approach in physics education, improving students' conceptual understanding in physics, using computers in teaching physics to medical students, physics curriculum reform, and the examination of two-dimensional motion with video and computer programs. Papers include: (1) "Computer Practical Works in Physics: Mechanics and Optics" (Vasily A. Davydov, Sergey V. Lavristchev, and Alexandre V. Skurikhin); (2) "Animation Programs and Three Dimensional Presentations in the Teaching of Physics" (Jyrki Hokkanen and Peter Holmberg); (3)"Computers in Physics Laboratory" (Ari Hamalainen); (4) "An Approach to Computer Based Educational Environment on Physics" (Vladimir A. Karpov); (5) "New Information Technologies in Education: Mathematical Simulation Processes and Systems" (V.P. Konovalov); (6) "'Physics by Pictures': Simulation of Physical Experiments and Problems on PC in School-Physics Teaching" (Stanislav Kozel and Nataly Soboleva); (7) "Perceptional Approach in Physics Education" (Kaarle Kurki-Suonio); (8) "Using Microcomputer-Based Data Acquisition To Improve Pupils' Conceptual Understanding in Physics (Jari Lavonen); (9) Information Technology in a Modern Physics Classroom" (Veijo Meisalo); (10) "The Renewal of Physics Curriculum in Finland" (Veijo Meisalo); (11) "Computers in Teaching of Physics for Medical Students" (Tiiu Muursepp and Toomas Muursepp); (12) "Computer Models of Physical Processes in School Education" (A.M.
