You are invited to contribute to the 9th British Congress of Mathematics Education (BCME 9) to be held at the University of Warwick, 3 April - 6 April 2018.

BCME is a celebration of mathematics education attracting delegates from every phase (early years through to university) and aspect (teaching through to research, policy and public engagement). It takes place every four years under the auspices of The Joint Mathematical Council of the United Kingdom (JMC).

Contributions can take the form of workshop, talk, demonstration, discussion group or research presentation; aimed at practitioners concerned with Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) , Key Stage 1 (KS1), KS2, KS3, KS4, post-16, university, initial teacher education (ITE) or teacher professional development (CPD) for 30, 60 or 90 minutes. Sessions should not be used to advertise commercial wares, but commercial wares might be used to illustrate a particular teaching approach. If your session is linked with a particular JMC participating body, please indicate this when applying.

The draft programme, that is subject to change, is below.

Conference Programme

Contributions will be scheduled into 60 minute (B, C, F, G, J, K) or 90 minute (A, D, E, H, I) sessions. If you prefer a particular day or session, please indicate this on your application. If your contribution is linked to another contribution, please indicate this so they can be appropriately scheduled: for those offering 30 minute contributions, we particularly encourage you do this so that related contributions can be scheduled in the same session. Do not worry if you are unable to do so, the programme team will do its best to find some suitable way to schedule your contribution.

All contributors will be able to share resources with delegates through the website before the conference and will be invited to submit an article based on their contribution to the BCME proceedings. Research contributors will be able to opt to have their article refereed by members of BSRLM. Please note that this is a significant change to previous practice where the proceedings have been prepared in advance of the congress.

To accept this invitation please offer a contribution completing all the necessary information by 31 July 2017. You will need to provide title, description (maximum 100 words), details about the contribution (type, phase and duration) and any resource or equipment needs, including room layout (lecture style, chairs only, cabaret (groups of tables), classroom (rows of tables)). If you are a new presenter you will be able to indicate if you would like support. Please note that you will be asked to indicate an intention to register as a delegate.

If you have any queries or wish to discuss a possible contribution, please contact programme@bcme.org.uk. Whilst we cannot guarantee accepting all offers of contributions as we need to ensure a broad and balanced programme, we are looking for 32 contributions at any one time so you are in with a good chance.

Yours sincerely
