HPM Chair Message

Dear colleagues,

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).

As you might know, our Satellite Meeting will take place in Montpellier, from July 18 to July 22, 2016.

The host of the Satellite Meeting is the Faculty of Education of the Université de Montpellier:
2 place Marcel Godechot – BP 4152

We are pleased to inform you that registration is now open.
If you want to take advantage of the early registration rate, please register before April 29, 2016.

A public conference has been added to our scientific program.

The subject of the conference is mathematician Joseph Diaz Gergonne who was the editor of what came to be one of the most important mathematical journals of his time—Annales de mathématiques pures et appliquées, founded in 1810. The public conference will be given by Professor Christian Gerini. Commenting on the 19th century mathematician, Gerini notes that “Gergonne was a leading representative of the relationship between mathematics, history and pedagogy.”
On the social side of the 2016 HPM Satellite Meeting, you will find on the conference web page (http://hpm2016.sciencesconf.org) information about several excursions and a gala dinner.

The HPME 2016 Scientific Committee and the Local Committee are working hard to ensure a conference of the best scientific quality in a Mediterranean environment that is steeped in history.

I hope to see you all in Montpellier this summer.
