Call for papers on the history of mathematics education

For the Fifth International Conference on the History of Mathematics Education (ICHME-5), held in Utrecht from September 19-22 2017, there is an open call for papers. Abstracts of proposed contributions must be submitted before 1 April 2017.

Submission of abstracts, and later of papers, is only possible via the conference website. Abstracts should be in English and about one page (500 words). References must be included. Please motivate very shortly (one or two sentences) why your proposed presentation is a relevant addition to the body of knowledge of the history of mathematics education. There will be no possibility for a revision of abstracts, once submitted. 

New topics

Those proposing abstracts will have wide freedom of choice, but in order to stimulate research in areas that are less explored, new topics, such as teacher journals and mathematics education prior to 1800, are suggested. A publication of the proceedings is planned. Papers will be peer-reviewed.

The decision about acceptance of proposals will be communicated by 15 May 2017. The conference is organised by the Dutch Association of Mathematics Teachers in cooperation with the Freudenthal Institute and the Descartes Centre, both of the University of Utrecht.
