ICME-15 Committees and Supporters

The Consortium for Mathematics Education

The Consortium for Mathematics Education (CoME) was created to bid for the opportunity to host ICME-15 in Sydney in 2024. The leading national organisations from across the spectrum of mathematics education that form CoME are:

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Mathematics Alliance

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Mathematics Alliance (ATSIMA) was officially established in 2015 as a not-for profit organisation with the vision that all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander learners will be successful in mathematics. The basis of ATSIMA’s work is to create innovative pedagogies in mathematics that connect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture to the teaching and learning of mathematics.

Chris Matthews represents ATSIMA on the committee for the CoME.

The Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers

The Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers (AAMT) is a federation of associations of teachers of mathematics from all Australian States and Territories. AAMT’s aims are to support and enhance the work of teachers, promote the learning of mathematics, and represent and promote interests in mathematics education.

Allan Dougan represents AAMT on the committee for the CoME.

The Australian Council of Heads of Mathematical Sciences

With a membership based on the convocation of the heads of mathematical sciences departments in all Australian universities that is augmented by representatives from other key organisations, the Australian Council of Heads of Mathematical Sciences (ACHMS) provides a broad base for input to policy and discussion on areas of concern to the mathematics and statistics community.

Anthony Dooley represents ACHMS on the committee for the CoME.

The Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute

The Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI) is a joint venture of Australia’s universities, government agencies and learned societies. AMSI’s mission is to deliver radical improvement of the mathematical sciences capacity and capability in the Australian community through the support of high quality mathematics education for all young Australians. AMSI aims to improve the supply of mathematically well-prepared students entering tertiary education by direct involvement with schools, support mathematical sciences research and its applications including cross-disciplinary areas and public and private sectors and enhance the undergraduate and postgraduate experience of students in the mathematical sciences and related disciplines.

Tim Marchant represents AMSI on the committee for the CoME.

The Australian Mathematical Society

The Australian Mathematical Society (AustMS) is a national society for the mathematics profession in Australia. AustMS aims to promote and extend mathematical knowledge and its applications.

Chris Tisdall represents AustMS on the committee for the CoME.

The Mathematical Association of New South Wales

The Mathematical Association of New South Wales (MANSW) is the professional association for teachers of Mathematics in New South Wales, and an affiliate of the AAMT. For over 100 years, MANSW has provided professional learning opportunities for teachers, journals, and conferences, and stimulating activities for students.

Darius Samojlowicz represents ANSW on the committee for the CoME.

The Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia

The Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (MERGA) is an association which aims to promote, share, disseminate, and co-operate on quality research on mathematics education for all levels particularly in Australasia; to provide permanent means for sharing of research results and concerns among all members through regular publications and conferences; to seek means of implementing research findings at all decision levels to the teaching of mathematics and to the preparation of teachers of mathematics; and to maintain liaison with other organisations with similar interests in mathematics education or educational research.

Catherine Attard represents MERGA on the committee for the CoME.

The Statistical Society of Australia

The Statistical Society of Australia (SSA) is a national society representing Australian and overseas statisticians which aims to support and further the work of state statistical societies representing professional statisticians.

Peter Howley represents SSA on the committee for the CoME.

The International Program Committee

The International Program Committee (IPC) is appointed by ICMI Executive Committee following the successful bid to host ICME. It is the responsibility of the IPC to form the ICME scientific program, select presenters, and oversee the progress of the Congress preparations.
