8th ICMI-East Asia Regional Conference on Mathematics Education (EARCOME),


The 8th ICMI-East Asia Regional Conference on Mathematics Education EARCOME will be held May 7-11, 2018 in Taiwan. The EARCOME series grew out of earlier conferences in the region.  The South East Asia Conferences on Mathematics Education (SEACME) series began in 1978 in Manila, and thereafter conferences were held at three-year intervals at Kuala Lumpur (1981), Haad Yai (1984), Singapore (1987), Brunei (1990), Surabaya (1993), Hanoi (1996), and Manila again in 1999.  

EARCOME is held every three years except on the years when the International Congress on Mathematical Education (ICME) is held. On such a year, EARCOME is held the year before. Countries/Regions in East Asia take turns hosting the conferences. 

"Flexibility in Mathematics Education" has been chosen as the theme of the conference. Flexibility is highly related to creativity, multiplicity, and adaptation. In the current era, rapid changes in economy, environment and society have been facilitated by the rapid development of technology and engineering. Flexibility in mathematical thinking, problem solving, teaching methods, evaluation, teacher education and mathematics education research is a key to empowering learners, teachers, educators and researchers to tackle the complexity and uncertainty, and to giving them the capacity and motive to change in the innovative era.
