Emerging Communities
Call for new initiatives for promoting Emerging Communities
ERME recognizes the important efforts made by small groups of scholars in a number of countries to gain access to research in mathematics education and to integrate themselves to the international research community. The ERME Board offers a small number of grants (up to a maximum of 5000€) to well-motivated initiatives to support emerging communities of research in mathematics education in countries which have been underrepresented in this kind of research so far.
You can find details it here. Applications should be sent by email to the ERME board members Edyta Nowinska (enowinska@uni-osnabrueck.de) and Konstantinos Tatsis (ktatsis@uoi.gr). Strict deadline is June, 30, 2019.
CERME12 (in 2021)
Call for new TWGs
After CERME 11 has been closed in lovely Utrecht with all the wonderful experiences, we start to prepare for CERME 12 in Bolzano on February, 3-7, 2021. The local chair will be Giorgio Bolondi with co-chair Federica Ferretti, the IPC chair will be Jeremy Hodgen with co-chair Eirini Geraniou.
We call for applications for up to three new working groups, you can find it here. The proposals must be submitted until April, 20, 2019.
ETCs (in 2020)
Call for new ERME Topic Conferences
TWG leaders and co-leaders can apply for Organizing an ERME Topic Conference in 2020. ERME Topic Conferences (ETC) are conferences organised on a specific research theme or themes related to the work of ERME as presented in associated working groups at CERME conferences. Their aim is to extend the work of the group or groups in specific directions with clear value to the mathematics education research community.
We call for applications for up to three new working groups, you can find it here. The proposals should follow the prescribed format and be submitted until April 5, 2019.
