Best 100 of Seoul    

A Topic Study Group is designed to gather a group of congress participants who are interested in a particular topic in mathematics education. For ICME-12, the Topic Study Group is the major arena for participation. Participants are expected to associate themselves with one TSG and to stay in that group for all four sessions.

The word ‘study’ suggests that the activities of the groups will include presentations and discussions of important new trends and developments in research or practice related to the topic under consideration. Each TSG will be organised by a team of five to six. Two co-chairs have been appointed for each team. Each TSG will include a local member, who, as well as being a member of the team, will be the liaison with the Local Organising Committee for practical issues.

The purpose of the TSGs is to provide a forum for presentations and discussion on the current state-of-the-art in the topic, seen from an international perspective. One of the special features of ICME is that it is a place where different perspectives are welcomed and can cross-pollinate each other. By their very nature, some of the topics are focused more on research than on practice. For others the opposite will be the case, whereas several topics will have a fairly equal balance of the two.

At ICME-12, the TSGs will have four one and a half hour timeslots at their disposal. This makes TSGs the prime forum for participation. Organising teams are therefore asked to ensure that all participants who submit a contribution are given some way of making a presentation. It is recognised that some submissions are of higher quality than others, and hence may be given more time within the group. But everyone attending ICMI has a right to make a presentation of some kind, be it short oral or poster and the TSG is the only forum available. The International Programme Committee (IPC) may be consulted by Co-chairs who are having difficulty meeting this requirement.

Each TSG organising team will have the responsibility of updating the web site linked to the congress website. The web sites of each TSG will be opened in the middle of May. On this site it will be possible to follow the planning process and eventually access all relevant documents including the timetable for TSG sessions. Participants who would like to present papers in a TSG are requested to communicate with the team chairs. The TSG teams are responsible for establishing a scheme for paper presentation by distribution, see “How to contribute”. Typically proposals should be put forward no later than November 1, 2011, but specific guidelines, if such apply, will be made available on the web site. If the proposal is accepted, the final draft should be submitted through on-line no later than April 10, 2102.
