Public Announcement on Hybrid Mode for ICME-14


November 6, 2020

Considering the current situation and potential development of COVID19, we (ICME-14 Chair and LOC together with the ICMI Presidents, Vice Presidents and Secretaries General, Incumbent and incoming) decided in a joint online meeting on October 29, 2020 that ICME-14 will be held in a hybrid mode, i.e., it will be held simultaneously in face-to-face form (in Shanghai) as well as online form. The IPC agrees with the decision. The detailed design for integrating two forms in a conference is being discussed and any new updates will be announced once ready. 

We wish this decision helps you to make your plan of attending the congress, and, if applicable, we hope you could still try your best to attend the face-to-face congress in Shanghai.

Address of Welcome


As the Congress chair of ICME-14, I cordially invite you to participate in the Congress to be held in Shanghai from July 12th to 19th, 2020.


As an ancient country with a 5,000-year history of civilization, China boasts a brilliant tradition of mathematics and mathematics education. In recent 100 years, the introduction of western mathematics and mathematics education and their integration with traditional Chinese culture and education have fostered new achievements in mathematics education of modern China. Shanghai, a well-known metropolis in the Far East, is a powerful engine for the economic and social development of China and a window of China's opening-up policy. In addition, it is also the cradle of modern Chinese mathematics and mathematics education and the birthplace of the Chinese Mathematical Society. East China Normal University is one of the top universities in China and takes the lead in the development of teacher education in China. The mathematics education team of ECNU has a great influence both at home and abroad. Taking consideration of all these facts, I believe that the ICME-14 hosted in Shanghai will be a grand academic Congress and a great surprise for the colleagues around the world.


I am very much looking forward to seeing you at ICME-14 in Shanghai. I am sure your participation will contribute greatly to the success of the ICME-14.
