Proceedings of ICME-14

The publication of the Proceedings of the 14th International Congress on Mathematical Education is delayed due to force majeure factors, including Covid-19. It is estimated to be published within 2023.
On behalf of the ICME-14 Local Organizing Committee, ICMI is uploading the Proceedings on this webpage gradually for reference only before its official publication. It should be noted that both the content and the format of the Proceedings will be changed by the time of the official publication. The current page numbers do not represent the continuous page numbers of the final Proceedings.
Any suggestions and comments on the pre-print Proceedings from IPC members, editorial board members and authors are welcome. Please send an email to
