Topic Study Groups (TSG)

A Topic Study Group is designed to gather a group of congress participants who are interested in a particular topic of mathematics education. Each TSG will be organized by a team of five IPC invited experts in the field. The organizing team will review, select and organize contributions, some by invitations and some by submissions by interested participants. All the accepted submissions will be invited to present in one of the three modes, including regular TSG presentation, short presentation and poster presentation.

A total of 62 topics have been decided by the IPC. As an innovative feature of ICME-14, the list of topics will be grouped into two classes running in different timeslots. Therefore, the participants are allowed to associate themselves with two TSGs (one primary and one secondary) from different classes and then expected to stay with the two groups throughout all the sessions.

The 62 TSGs are as follows. Grouping TSGs into two classes will be decided by IPC later and will be announced in the Second Announcement:
