YERME Day 2019

The YERME-Day (for Young Researchers in ERME) will be held one day before CERME11, and will take place from February 5th to February 6th 2019.

The YERME Day provides an opportunity for participants to meet key European researchers in mathematics education, getting to know about their work and methodological approaches. In addition, YERME Day constitutes an important networking possibility for meeting young researchers from other countries, pursuing similar and not so similar research issues.

The programme foresees several plenary presentations, three working groups (WG) and three discussion groups (DG). These groups will last for three hours and will be led by key scholars in European Mathematics Education from different academic traditions.

Participants may be PhD students, master’s degree students, recently graduated post-doctors (5 years), PhD researchers who are moving towards mathematics education coming from other fields. To be accepted participants need to first register for CERME11. Attendance in YERME Day, WG and DG is done by order of registration and is free of charge.

The maximum number of participants for YERME has been reached. If you registered and have been selected by the YERME-IPC you will shortly receive an email explaining the next steps; if you were not selected for participation in YERME this will also be communicated to you via email.”
