Call for papers and posters

SUBMISSION SYSTEM IS NOW CLOSED

For a pdf version and further details: Second Annoncement & Call for Papers

We now invite paper and poster proposals on the following two broad Thematic Working Groups (TWG)1:

  • TWG1 Teachers’ and students’ practices at university level, including: transition to university mathematics; challenges for, and novel approaches to, teaching; the role of ICT and other resources; assessment; and the preparation and training of university mathematics teachers.
  • TWG2 Teaching and learning of specific topics in university mathematics, mainly from analysis and calculus – linear and abstract algebra – logic, reasoning and proof – number theory and discrete mathematics – mathematics and other fields. This includes research on innovative course or task design; theoretical studies of mathematical themes in view of their teaching and learning; and, research on the teaching and learning of specific contents in different contexts, such as study programmes or institutions.

Submissions should comply with the guidelines for CERME conferences and the INDRUM template. Please indicate in your submission if your contribution is theoretical or empirical and to which of the above TWGs it mostly belongs. The selection of papers and posters to be presented will be conducted through peer review coordinated by the Scientific Committee.
