Author Guidelines

Authors are invited to send the full paper in English by 15 May, 2022. All papers submitted will be reviewed by the Program Committee and authors will be notified of the acceptance of the paper by e-mail by 1 July, 2022.

Authors will be able to track the progress of their submission and will be invited to send the camera-ready papers by 25 July, 2022. Authors can choose between the poster (2 pages) or the regular paper (4 pages). However, to offer participants the opportunity to submit a longer paper, 8-pages papers can also be submitted and reviewed.

All papers accepted for the conference will be fully published in HAL archives.

Authors are invited to submit a paper prior to 22 May 2022. In the MEDA3_template.docx you will find the instructions for writing the papers for the conference. Please use this template for preparation of your manuscripts. The styles to be used are defined for all parts of the paper, from the title to the list of references. Please, follow the instructions in the template and use the styles to ensure correct publication of your paper. The abstract should contain no more than 250 words and should be also copy/pasted to the adequate text box of the paper submission form.

For submitting a paper, certain steps should be completed. Please go to easychair.

Topics & Scope

The scope of the conference includes but is not limited to the following major topics:

Theme 1: Mathematics teachers’ practices, teacher education and professional development in the digital age
  • Shared virtual/hybrid spaces and resources for teacher education and professional development
  • Teachers’ experiences and practices during the COVID-19 pandemic and expectations regarding perspectives for teaching after the crisis
Theme 2: Curriculum innovation, design of digital and hybrid environments and practical implementation of digital resources
  • Applications of Learning Management Systems, Learning Analytics and Artificial Intelligence in the design of resources, students’ activities, assessment and research in mathematics education
  • Design and implementation of resources with novel technologies as 3D print technologies, robots, AR, VR, MR and XR, in addition to the well-established DGS and CAS
  • Computational thinking in mathematics education at all educational levels
  • Different modalities of synchronous and asynchronous learning supported with various digital tools (e.g., digital concept maps, shared boards and spaces, etc.)
Theme 3: Assessment in mathematics education in the digital age
  • Formative and summative assessment in remote and hybrid conditions at all levels of education

Cross-theme relationships
Whilst we propose these three themes to support more focused work during the conference, we are acutely aware of the overlaps and relationships between them. Consequently, we will work to integrate these themes in the following ways:

  • We will welcome research papers that bridge two or three of the conference themes. The IPC will actively encourage papers of this type from the community.
  • We will support the ‘cross-theme’ work by scheduling sessions during the conference for the separate groups to come together.

The conference particularly welcomes contributions linking some of these three themes at any level of mathematics education: pre-school, primary, lower- and upper-secondary or tertiary.
