Organizing a PME conference in Greece has been an endeavour long pursued by the regular Greek PME members, who will do their best to make sure that our 2009 annual meeting will be both socially and scientifically successful.
The theme of the conference, “In search for theories in Mathematics Education”, has been chosen in the hope that, as Ancient Greece provided the context within which Mathematics advanced theoretically, Modern Greece can become the threshold for enhancing the ongoing debate on this crucial for our field’s scientific maturity and development issue.
The conference will be hosted at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the University of Macedonia. Both venues are close to the centre of the city. We hope that your stay in Greece will be a pleasant experience and look forward to seeing you in Thessaloniki, in July 2009.
