Call for Submissions of contributions to the ICMI Study 24 Conference

The IPC for ICMI Study 24 invites submissions of contributions of several kinds which include: research papers related to school mathematics curriculum reform issues; theoretical, cultural, historical, and epistemological essays (with deep connection to curriculum reforms); discussion and position papers analysing curriculum policy and practice issues; synthesis and meta-analysis reports on empirical studies; reviews of curriculum reform efforts, especially at macro levels; and papers on comparative studies in curriculum reform initiatives.

  • Authors must select one theme from among the five described in the ICMI Study 24 Discussion Document to which their paper must be submitted.
  • Authors are expected to consider the questions listed below each theme in the Discussion Document in making their decision to submit papers.
  • To ensure a rich and varied discussion, participation from countries with different economic capacity, and different social, political and cultural heritage and practices is encouraged.
  • The IPC encourages people who are not familiar with such conferences to submit early and request assistance for finalising their contribution (by 28 February, 2018 - this ICMI Study 24 Discussion Document assistance concerns the choice of the paper topic, theme or structure, not the editing of English language). In this way, the IPC supports a tradition of helping newcomers to the international mathematics education community.
  • An invitation to the conference does not imply that a formal presentation of the submitted contribution will be made during the conference or that the paper will appear in the study volume published after the conference. 

Submission:  

  • A template for the submission of papers is available on the ICMI Study 24 website
  • Papers prepared in English (the language of the Study Conference) according to the template and a maximum of 8 pages must be submitted by the deadlines set out below. 

Deadlines:

  • 31 May, 2018: Submissions must be made online no later than May 31, but earlier if possible. 
  • 30 June, 2018: Papers will be reviewed, decisions made about invitations to the conference, and notification of these decisions will be sent to the corresponding/main author by the end of June.
