Topic Study Groups (TSG)

A Topic Study Group (TSG) is designed to gather a group of Congress participants who are interested in a particular topic in mathematics education. TSGs will promote the discussion of a variety of perspectives on the theme of the group. A TSG will serve as a mini-conference and will display the progress of the discussion in the intervening years, which will consist of high-standard discussions enabling the newcomer to get a broad overview on the state-ofthe-art and allowing the experts to lead discussions at a high level. The team will provide the participants of their TSG not with a nationally framed insight into the strands of the discussion of the theme, but with an overall overview on the international discussion as broadly as possible and allowing for insight into less well-known strands of the discussion from underrepresented countries. 

As like previous ICMEs, in ICME-14, the TSG is the major arena for participation. There are 62 TSGs designed and divided into two classes, odd TSG numbers (TSG 1, TSG 3, …) in Class A, and even ones (TSG 2, TSG 4, …) in Class B, to run in different sets of timeslots. Every TSG has four sessions with 90-60-90-60 minutes’ timeslots. There are also two additional 60-minutes’ timeslots for posters, shared by all TSGs. 


Call for Papers and Posters

We cordially invite participants to submit presentations in the form of papers or posters to one of the 62 Topic Study Groups at ICME-14. However, due to the expected large number of contributions, each participant can only submit either a paper or a poster to one TSG, which has to be selected at the beginning of the submission process, and he/she is encouraged to participate in all sessions of the selected TSG to focus on a highly-related theme to his/her own study. Since the 62 TSGs have been partitioned as two classes fitting into two different sets of time-sessions, participants are able to visit more TSGs they are interested in. Participants can also serve as subordinated authors of other papers or posters, but only for two others maximally.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed. Depending on their quality and their alignment with the planned structure of the selected TSG, the papers will be presented in a longer or shorter timeslot in the sessions for TSG. Due to restrictions of the rooms, posters will be jointly presented in the poster sessions.

This structure strengthens the role and importance of the TSGs. It will allow high-standard discussions to give an overview on the current state-of-the-art and will enable all interested participants to present their work at ICME-14 and receive feedback from the academic audience.


Paper/Poster Submission Process
    — Paper submission to a selected Topic Study Group, 4-page maximum.
    — Poster submission to a selected Topic Study Group containing a 1-page description of the planned poster, rather than the poster itself.

Templates for papers and posters must be used and are available on the official website (homepage—downloads—template for paper, or homepage—downloads—template for poster). The submission should be made via ICME-14 registration system.

The authors of the papers selected for a long presentation will be invited to extend theirpapers to 8 pages. All the other papers will remain unchanged.

All papers and posters will be uploaded to the administration system under the domain connected to the selected TSG and are only accessible to registered participants of this TSG. This setting allows intensive discussions about all papers and promotes advanced reading. Moreover, some but limited information of the papers/posters and the authors will be used in the Congress programme brochure and the after-Congress proceedings if necessary. However, it would not influence further publication of the papers by the authors themselves.
