The 15th International Congress on Mathematics Education 7-14 July 2024
The International Congress on Mathematical Education is the largest international conference on mathematics education in the world. Organised under the auspices of the International Commission on Mathematical Instruction, this quadrennial event explores the current state and trends in mathematics education research and the practice of mathematics teaching at all levels from across the world.
The 15th International Congress on Mathematics Education (ICME-15) will be held 7-14 July 2024 at International Convention Centre in Sydney, Australia. The first time in 8 years that the international mathematics education community has been able to come together in person, ICME-15 promises to be an innovative congress that builds on the well-established ICME program. Featuring established and emerging thought leaders from around the world, this interactive, relevant and dynamic event is not to be missed.
Convenor ICME-15, Chair International Program Committee
It is an honour and a great pleasure for me to invite you to what will be a truly unique and exciting initiative for mathematics and statistics education in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
The successful bid to host ICME-15 in Sydney in 2024 is the work of the Consortium for Mathematics Education (CoME), a group of eight leading national organisations in the mathematical sciences. I had the privilege of leading the work of CoME in recent years, and was honoured to accept the nomination as Convenor of ICME-15.
The broad base of commitment for this initiative is a clear indication of the importance these leading organisations ascribe to supporting the further development of mathematics and statistics education.
CoME members are determined to engage and involve colleagues across the region in order to make ICME-15 an important opportunity for mathematics teachers, lecturers, researchers, teacher educators, consultants, curriculum developers and other mathematics education professionals in Australia and across the Asia-Pacific region. Our aim is for ICME-15 to be an inclusive event at which people who are passionate about mathematics and statistics education can come together, and connect with like-minded colleagues from around the globe – to create lasting local, regional and global legacies in our field.
I have attended all but one ICME since 2004, and it would be an privilege to welcome ICME-15 delegates to my own country in 2024.
I encourage you to stay in touch for updates and we welcome your input to help make ICME-15 a resounding success.
Local Organising Committee Chair ICME-15
In 1984 Australia created a significant global legacy when we hosted the Congress in Adelaide. Forty years on, in 2024, Australia’s mathematics community seeks to create a new legacy for the next generation, by growing mathematics education capacity through developing and sharing programs that translate globally, especially within the Asia-Pacific region, as well as locally. Australia’s vision is for a congress at which extensive collaboration nurtures ongoing professional connections and drives the creation of tangible education resources.
As a future-focused community, an Australian Congress will seek to embrace the technologies available to the global mathematics community to optimise both the delivery of the Congress and the sharing of outputs and outcomes.
Highlighting the 40th anniversary of Australia’s first ICME will demonstrate the lasting impact of ICME5 in 1984, and set the challenge for a similar legacy to bear fruit in the coming years, not just in Australia, but, with the facilities of contemporary communication technologies, across the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.
