Call for Nominations for the first ICMI EMMA CASTELNUOVO AWARD: Deadline January 15, 2015

The Emma Castelnuovo Award Committee is extending to January 15, 2015, the deadline for submitting nominations for the new ICMI award named after Emma Castelnuovo, an Italian mathematics educator born in 1913, in celebration of her 100th birthday and honoring her pioneer work. She died in April 2014.

This award will consist of a medal and a certificate, accompanied by a citation, and will be awarded once every four years (and not once every two years as is the case with the ICMI Klein and Freudenthal awards). The recipient of the first award will be announced early in 2015, and the award will be conferred at the 13th International Congress on Mathematics Education in July 2016 in Hamburg, Germany. The awardee (or its representative in the case of an institution, project, or organization) will be invited to present a special lecture at the Congress.

The Emma Castelnuovo Award will celebrate outstanding achievements in the practice of mathematics education. It will honor persons, groups, projects, institutions, or organizations that have done exceptionally excellent and influential work in our field.

For details of the evaluation criteria and the nominations process, see

All nominations must be sent by e-mail ( to the Chair of the Committee no later than January 15.
