ICME: The International Congress on Mathematical Education

A major event in the life of the international mathematics education community is formed by the quadrennial International Congress on Mathematical Education, ICME, held under the auspices of ICMI. The site of an ICME is decided upon by the ICMI EC. Moreover for each ICME the scientific program is planned by an International Program Committee, IPC, appointed by but in principle working independently of the ICMI EC. However, in order to ensure continuity and conformity with general ICMI principles, the ICMI EC normally has representatives on the IPC (the President and Secretary of ICMI being ex officio members of the IPC), one of whom is acting as a liaison officer with the Local Organizing Committee of the congress.




IOWME has two 90-minute sessions, Wednesday July 11 and Friday, July 13 at 17:00-18:30.
