Contribution formats

All proposals to contribute to the conference should be made by submitting an abstract.
Please note you are required to have registered and paid for the conference prior to your abstract being accepted.

Poster presentations
Your abstract should give an overview of the work to be presented using text although the poster itself should be visually attractive. Posters presented at the conference should be A1 in size and portrait in orientation.

Individual symposium contributions should be proposed in the usual manner together with an overarching proposal that should clearly indicate the connectivity of the contributions and set out a rationale for the symposium proposal. The overarching proposal should clarify exactly which individual contributions are included in the symposium.

Workshop presentations
Workshop presentations provide a more interactive format that you can use to involve the audience in hands-on activity. You might propose such a session if, for example, you wish to present work that is developmental in nature. For example, you might demonstrate new approaches to curriculum materials, assessment, models of professional development and so on.

For each of the contributions above please submit an abstract. Please note you are required to have registered and paid for the conference prior to your abstract being accepted.

Abstract formatting guidelines

Abstracts should be prepared to the following format:

  • A maximum of 400 words
  • Written in English
  • The presenting author should be indicated on the system

Paper presentations

Paper presentations may be primarily research or theory driven. The paper should give an overview of the intentions of the presentation and should have a clear focus on modelling or applications. It may address issues in relation to: – pedagogy; – learning; – assessment; – epistemology; – affective issues; – research methodology; – connections to other disciplines; – connections to the workplace or society more widely.

Next book in ICTMA series

The conference does not publish proceedings, but authors can submit a proposed chapter for consideration for publication in an edited volume after the conference. Instructions for authors will be available on the ICTMA website. Contributions are required to be submitted after the conference by 15th September 2017. The book chapters are fully reviewed by international expert referees. Not all submissions will pass successfully through this rigorous reviewing process. Books in the ICTMA series are published in the Springer Series, International Perspectives on the Teaching and Learning of Mathematical Modelling (Series Editors: Gabriele Kaiser and Gloria Stillman).
