PME 38 will take place from July 15 to 20, 2014 in Vancouver (Canada).
Call for Research Forum proposals for PME 38
Proposals for a Research Forum to be organized at PME 38 in Vancouver, Canada, should be in hands of the PME Administrative Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org) not later than October 1, 2013. Guidelines to submitting Research Forum proposals can be found at the PME website: http://www.igpme.org/#/research-forums/3850279.
Pre-Submission Support for PME 38
The PME pre-submission support for Research Reports and Short Oral Communications is intended for novice or inexperienced researchers who have limited access to expert advice and who would like to receive guidance from more experienced PME researchers. Applicants should submit their paper to the coordinator who is appointed by the International Committee. The coordinator will then assign the paper to an appropriate mentor and ensure that the communication between the mentor and novice researcher proceeds smoothly.
The PME pre-submission support coordinator is Nathalie Sinclair (Canada), email@example.com
The PME pre-submission support deadline is in September in the year before the conference. People who wish to have a mentor for the PME 38 Conference in 2014 should submit a Research Report or Short Oral Communication and contact the coordinator as early as possible, but no later than September 1, 2013.
The pre-submission support papers should be accompanied by a statement in which the authors describe
- their limited experience in writing research reports (or journal articles) and
- their limited access to expert advice.
Mentors will correspond with the applicants and help strengthen their submitted papers.
Please note that this procedure is meant to provide feedback on written reports. It is not meant as support for conducting research. This mentoring does not guarantee acceptance, as all submitted papers will still undergo the regular PME reviewing procedures.
