A MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR OF HPM
In this edition of the HPM Newsletter, I would like to provide an update on our forthcoming 2016 HPM Satellite Meeting of the International Congress on Mathematical Education (ICME).
The HPM Scientific Committee and the HPM Advisory Board have been working together with the Montpellier Local Committee to establish the scientific program of the 2016 ICME HPM Satellite Meeting. As announced in a previous HPM Newsletter, the 2016 ICME HPM Satellite Meeting will be held in Montpellier, France, from July 18 to July 22, 2016.
I am glad to report that the scientific program has been finalized. It includes plenary lectures, discussion groups, panels, workshops, research presentations, and posters. Below, you will find a summary.
