International Congress on Mathematics Education - ICME12

O Congresso Internacional em Educação Matemática (ICME) é um dos mais importantes congressos do mundo na área de Educação e Ensino de Matemática.

ICME-12: 12th International Congress on Mathematical Education
July 8-15, 2012, Seoul, Korea.

A call for ICME-12 Discussion Groups

Contrary to past ICME practice, Discussion Groups for ICME-12 will be
created in response to a proposal submitted by a group of up to five persons
representing a diverse region of the world.
As their name suggests, Discussion Groups (DGs) are designed to gather
Congress participants who are interested in discussing, in a genuinely
interactive way, certain challenging, controversial or emerging issues and
dilemmas of interest to an international or regional audience. The focus of
DGs should be distinct from the subjects covered in the Topic Study Groups
(TSG) (see TSG listing attached) but could discuss a specific issue in
greater detail than that of a TSG.  Each DG will be allocated two time slots
of 90 minutes each during the Congress.

A proposal should include
-- Description of the background and expertise of the proposed organizers
-- Detailed description of the topic including anticipated aims and a
rationale for the topic
-- Key questions and issues for the DG to consider
-- A precise description of the anticipated structure that will be used to
manage the discussion during the two sessions, taking into account there
will be no oral presentations in a DG except introductions by the organizers
of the group to provide the background and framework for the discussion.

Application forms are available on the website (http://icme12.org). Members
of the organizing team must conform to the ICME custom that a person may
only play one major (TSG, DG, Survey Team, Panel, plenary and regular
lecture) and one minor role (poster presentation & other forms of
contribution to the scientific program) at ICME. Note that proposing a DG
will be considered a major role. Proposals should be received by the
International Program Committee (IPC) by June 30, 2011. Proposals will be
reviewed in accordance to the relevance of the topic to an international
audience, the diversity and expertise of the proposed organizing team, and
the format proposed for the discussion. Proposers will be notified of
acceptance by August 15, 2011.

Tasks for Organizing Teams (OT)
The OT will be expected to:
* Set up and maintain the DG web page
Before the congress, the discussion group organizing team will post their
page at the ICME-12 web site (http://icme12.org ) including contributions
that define, limit, and/or present basic premises, theoretical
considerations, research findings, viewpoints and facts that should be
accounted for if a fruitful discussion is to be attained. Prior to the
congress, participants can send individual contributions to the organizers
for consideration as additional background information and may raise
questions or participate in an exchange of ideas through the web site.
* Produce a progress report by December 30, 2011
* Submit a final version of the DG presentation to be included in the Final
program booklet. The final version must be sent to the Local Organizing
Committee by April 10th, 2012. This description for the Final Program
booklet should be between one and two pages (700 to 1,400 words) with the
  a) Name of DG and composition of the organizing team
  b) General description of the program for this DG; that is the aims,
scope, list of main questions it addresses, the rationale which guided the
OT in arriving at the program, and so on.
  c) The program of the DG, that is, the manner in which the discussion is
organized and distributed in the two sessions.
* Organize and manage the DG sessions during the Congress
* Produce a final report for the ICME-12 Proceedings

Deadline summary:
-- June 30, 2011    Proposal submission
-- August 15, 2011    Notification of acceptance
-- December 30, 2011    Progress report
-- April 10, 2012    Final version of the DG program submitted to Local
Organizing Committee

An IPC liaison will be appointed for each DG. The role of the IPC liaison
officer is to support and be an important resource on how a DG works.
Another source for information and guidance in planning a DG are the
websites of recent ICMEs (see http://icme11.org and http://www.icme10.dk ).
Thank you for your willingness to contribute to the success of ICME-12. We
are looking forward to an energetic exchange of ideas and information
through the Discussion Groups.
