The CERME Spirit
CERME (ERME Conferences) is organised by ERME whose chief aims are to promote communication, cooperation and collaboration (the famous three Cs of CERME) in research in mathematics education in Europe assuming that
  1. we need to know more about the research which has been done and is ongoing, and the research groups and research interests in different European countries and
  2. we need to provide opportunities for cooperation in research areas and for inter-European collaboration between researchers in joint research projects.
CERME is a Congress designed to foster a communicative spirit. It deliberately and distinctively moves away from research presentations by individuals towards collaborative group work. Its main feature is a number of thematic groups whose members will work together in a common research area. Researchers wishing to present a paper at the Congress should submit the paper to one of these groups. In addition to the Thematic Groups, there will be plenary sessions with opportunity to debate and to communicate the work of each group to other participants; poster sessions for new researchers, and others, to communicate their work and gain feedback; and policy and purpose sessions to negotiate the work and directions of ERME.
