17TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THE TEACHING OF MATHEMATICAL MODELLING AND APPLICATIONS (ICTMA17)

19 – 24 JULY 2015

Conference Theme: Modelling perspectives: looking within and across boundaries

The Centre for Research in Mathematics Education (CRME), University of Nottingham, U.K., will host the 17th International Conference of the Community of Teachers of Mathematical Modelling and Applications.

Organisation:

The conference will be organised locally by CRME staff, with Associate Professor Geoff Wake as Conference Chair, supported by Professors Hugh Burkhardt and Malcolm Swan (Director of CRME), University of Nottingham. They will be supported by others of the U.K mathematics education research community who have worked in the field of mathematical modelling and applications for many years including Profs. Julian Williams (University of Manchester) and Mike Savage (University of Leeds). This team of experienced researchers and educators will seek to involve a number of newly established researchers in accordance with the proposed policy of building community capacity.

Scientific Programme and Public lecture:

The Conference theme is Modelling perspectives: looking within and across boundaries. It is intended to provide a stimulus to consider new approaches drawing on best practice from other related research in mathematics education and associated domains. Modelling is considered as having potential for interdisciplinary work that is required for effective problem solving in the world of work and more widely. In developing the scientific programme it is proposed to take the opportunity to strengthen and build our community taking the view that mathematical modelling and applications has potential appeal to a wider constituency than currently within the field of mathematics education research. The programme will include plenary lectures, research and theoretical paper presentations and working groups. In addition, drawing on the strength of CRME staff and others in the UK who work in mathematics education design research, we propose to invite participants to actively participate in an ‘exhibition’ of teaching and learning materials that prioritise mathematical modelling and applications. In the UK there is currently concern over public awareness of, and interest in, mathematics and science. A number of high-profile figures are working hard to reach audiences of those who ordinarily are wary of these subjects. It is hoped to organise a public lecture involving such a figure during the conference to assist this endeavor and to celebrate the ICTMA community assembling in Nottingham.

Venue and Travel:

The conference will be held in the excellent academic facilities of University Park with a range of accommodation facilities for delegates on-site at a range of different costs. University Park is Nottingham’s largest campus at 300 acres. Part of the University since 1929, the campus is widely regarded as one of the largest and most attractive in the country. It is conveniently located only two miles from the city centre.

The University of Nottingham is a major UK university, set in an attractive campus on the outskirts of the City of Nottingham in the East Midlands region of England. It is easily accessible from both within the UK and internationally. The city is well-served by a number of airports with direct flights from many European cities and from other continents through London, Manchester and Birmingham. From the airports in these cities Nottingham can be reached by train in about 90 minutes – 2 hours depending on route and time of day. Close at hand, East Midlands Airport (EMA) is most convenient with the city centre being easily reached by bus service in about 30-45 minutes.
