The ICMI Executive Committee is pleased to announce that Professor Mogens Niss, from Roskilde University and former Secretary of ICMI, has been appointed Chair the International Program Committee for ICME-10. The composition of the IPC will be announced in the next issue of the ICMI Bulletin.
Bernard R. Hodgson, Secretary
From the Danish National Representative to ICMI:
Although Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark, ICME-10 is planned in a cooperation between all the Nordic Countries and the local profile of the conference will be a Nordic profile. This means that the Local Organizing Committee may have a majority of Danes, but includes members from other Nordic Countries as well. Moreover there is a special Nordic Coordination Committee with equal representation from all the Nordic Countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
Under the chairmanship of Morten Blomhøj, associate professor at Roskilde University, the work in the Local Organizing Committee is in good progress. We have developed a beautiful logo which we look forward to disclosing in Tokyo together with a short video presentation of the local culture of Mathematics teaching. We have put a lot of effort in finding the best congress centre or university in Copenhagen for ICME-10. We have checked that Copenhagen and Malmø in Sweden - recently connected by a bridge across the Sound - can offer accommodation at different prices for a large conference at the appropriate time in 2004.
