ICME-12 : pour information

la période d’inscription a prix réduit à ICME 12 à été prolongée jusqu’au 17 avril

- 8 avril 2012 -

Early deadline for registration to ICME-12 extended

Dear ICMI Representatives and Chairs of ICMI Affiliate Organizations

ICME, the International Congress on Mathematical Education, is the biggest event organized by ICMI, where several thousand professionals meet to discuss all problems and advances around mathematics education.
The next such congress will take place in Seoul, South Korea, next July, from the 8th to the 15th. The General Assembly of ICMI will take place on July 8.

The LOC-Local Organising Committee of ICME-12, chaired by Hyun Yong Shin and co-chaired by Hee Chan Lew, worked very hard to get low registration fees, and the early registration fee was set at 400 USD (with a discount of 20% for those that register also for the satellite conferences of the ICMI Affiliate Organizations MCG-The International Group for Mathematical Creativity and Giftedness or HPM-The International Study Group on the Relations between the History and Pedagogy of Mathematics).

With this situation we expect the maximum number of people interested might be able to attend ICME-12 in Seoul, South Korea.
But there have been several difficulties with the payment, namely with the use of credit cards that need to be able to use the 3D Secure system.

So, the LOC decided to :
a) extend the deadline for the early payment of the registration to the 17th of April.
b) ask all people with difficulties with the payment to write to icme12@icme12.org where they will receive information on a case by case basis.

We hope that all problems can be solved and we all meet in Seoul next July.

Please disseminate widely this information in your country or organization.

Thank you very much for your cooperation.

Jaime Carvalho e Silva
Secretary-General of ICMI
