13th International Congress on Mathematical Education (ICME-13) 24 – 31 July 2016 in Hamburg


The Society of Didactics of Mathematics (Gesellschaft für Didaktik der Mathematik – GDM) has the pleasure of hosting ICME-13 in 2016 in Germany. The congress – to be held under the auspices of the International Commission on Mathematical Instruction (ICMI) – will take place at the University of Hamburg from Sunday, 24th July to Sunday, 31st July 2016.

ICME Philosophy

International Congress on Mathematical Education (ICME) is held every four
years under the auspices of the International Commission on Mathematical Instruc- tion (ICMI). It is, however, planned and organised by separate committees, which operate independently of the ICMI, namely the International Programme Committee (IPC) and the Local Organising Committee (LOC) with the Local Chair. The responsibil- ity for the whole congress is within the Convenor of the congress.

International Congresses of Mathematics Education serve two major functions:
On the one hand they provide a scholarly opportunity for discussion, debate, and the presentation of new research and theory concerning all aspects of mathematics education. On the other hand it is a meeting place for the international community of mathematics education, namely, mathematics educators at various educational levels, mathematicians, teachers, policy-makers, and resource producers. ICME always seeks to simultaneously engage in serious scholarship and inclusive participation.

The scholarly aspect of ICME is represented by the Plenary Lectures and Survey Teams, the Invited Lectures and Topic Study Groups, and other fora. The people involved are chosen due to their high level of scholarship, but also with care for rep- resentativeness. All presentations in the congress are potentially subject to review, and may be allocated a time or mode of presentation that reflects its relevance and quality.

Inclusiveness within ICME is obtained in many forms. All who wish to attend
are welcome, and all who wish to present will be given an opportunity to do so in an appropriate Topic Study Group (TSG) or in an Oral Communication Session associated to the appropriate TSG or an associated Poster Session. In addition, discussions will be especially supported via Discussion Groups and Workshops, all congress partici- pants can submit convincing proposals.

ICME organisers also make special efforts to assist those who have financial or other difficulties concerning attendance by a solidarity grant. New and inexperienced members of the ICME community are especially welcome.

It has long been recognised by ICME organisers that collaboration is the best way of advancing our understanding of any topic. Thus, there is a need to give individual voices the opportunity to be heard and the community the opportunity of hearing them, without having to conform to the deliberations of a specific group.

Another factor in inclusiveness is the issue of language. While English is the official language of the congress, ICME organisers make every effort to accommodate the fact that many participants will not have English as their first language, and that there will be significant groups of participants from other language regions. Therefore trans- lations of the slides of the plenary lectures and of other important activities into the main congress languages will be provided. German as the language of the congress host country needs special attention, including special teacher activities run in German.

2nd Announcement

Call for Special Session Proposals at the Mathematical Congress of the Americas 2017 (MCA2017)


Proposals of special sessions at MCA 2017 are welcomed by the Special Sessions Subcommittee. Early submission of proposals is encouraged: good proposals will be approved on a regular basis before the deadline, so that session speakers may be invited in plenty of time to make travel and funding arrangements.

A proposal should include :

• the names, affiliations and contact information (including email addresses) of all the organizers, with one organizer designated as “contact organizer”,
• a brief presentation of the topic and scope (up to one page),
• a preliminary list of the expected speakers.

The topics should be broad and fairly well represented throughout the Americas. The list of organizers must include at least two mathematicians from different countries in the Americas. Preference will be given to proposals whose list of suggested speakers represents diversity in all aspects.

Each special session will consist of two 4-hour periods. We recommend that the organizers base their sessions on a total of 16 half-hour time slots for their speakers.

Although it is anticipated that limited financial support will be available to help with expenses of some of the participants, at present we cannot promise financial support for the special sessions.

Proposals should be sent to mca2017.sessions@gmail.com before July 31, 2016.

V Congreso Latinoamericano de Matemáticos UMALCA


Entre el 11 y 15 de julio de 2016, en la ciudad de Barranquilla, Colombia, se llevará a cabo el V Congreso Latinoamericano de Matemáticos de la UMALCA.

La Unión Matemática de América Latina y el Caribe (UMALCA) fue creada formalmente en la reunión realizada en julio de 1995 en el Instituto de Matemática Pura y Aplicada de Rio de Janeiro, con la participación de los Presidentes de las Sociedades Matemáticas de Argentina, Brasil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, México, Uruguay y Venezuela, y un representante de la de Perú. Actualmente son miembros de la UMALCA las sociedades matemáticas de Argentina, Brasil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, México, Paraguay, Perú, Uruguay y Venezuela. Las principales actividades de UMALCA se centran en tres programas: Las Escuelas Latinoamericanas de Matemáticas, el programa de apoyos para movilidad de matemáticos en la región, y el Congreso Latinoamericano de Matemáticas (CLAM).

El Congreso Latinoamericano de Matemáticos (CLAM) tiene como objetivos principales contribuir al desarrollo de la investigación matemática en América Latina y el Caribe, aumentar la visibilidad de la producción matemática de la región, y contribuir a establecer contactos profesionales entre matemáticos de la región y matemáticos de otras partes del mundo. Estos congresos se realizan cada cuatro años, y durante cada congreso se entrega los Premios UMALCA como reconocimiento a los más destacados jóvenes matemáticos que trabajen en la región.

Se han realizado cuatro de estos congresos:
Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, en 2000
Cancún, México, en 2004,
Santiago de Chile, Chile, en 2009
Córdoba, Argentina en 2012.

Congreso Internacional de Física Matemática 2015 se realizará en Santiago


El XVIII International Congress on Mathematical Physics se realizará en Santiago de Chile,  entre los días 27 de Julio y 1 de Agosto de 2015.

The International Congress  of Mathematical Physics (ICMP), on its three year cycle, is the most important conference of the International Association of Mathematical Physics. The ICMP 2015 will be a major event, where new results and future challenges will be discussed, illustrating the richness and vitality of Mathematical Physics. Following a tradition started in London in 2000, the ICMP 2015 will be preceded by the Young Researchers Symposium (July 24 and 25, 2015). Several satellite meetings are being organized in Valparaiso and Santiago (Chile) and  in Sao Paulo (Brazil) either  before or after ICMP2015.
