ICME15

CEOs, Presidents and National Leaders of Australia’s major mathematical-based societies* united in a consortium through 2018 to submit (October 2018) a bid for Australia’s hosting of the 15th International Congress on Mathematical Education (ICME15), 2024, at the International Convention Centre, Sydney, Australia. As part of the bidding process, the consortium hosted the ICMI delegates’ site visit in April 2019; at the time Australia was one of two shortlisted locations, the other, Prague. 

ICME is run once every four years and was last hosted in Australia in 1984. Prof. Chris Matthews has been representing ATSIMA in this consortium. As a member of the national consortium, Chris is  delighted to share the exceptional news that the collaborative bid for Australia (Sydney) to host the International Congress on Mathematical Education in 2024 has been successful.

A wonderful team effort that united Australia’s leading mathematical and statistical associations*.

Please help spread the good news as the work continues in preparing for 2024 and ensuring that mathematics education for Indigenous peoples is, for the first time, an essential part of the international conference.

THE IMAGINATION DECLARATION

"... With 60,000 years of genius and imagination in our hearts and minds, we can be one of the groups of people that transform the future of life on earth, for the good of us all.

We can design the solutions that lift islands up in the face of rising seas, we can work on creative agricultural solutions that are in sync with our natural habitat, we can re-engineer schooling, we can invent new jobs and technologies, and we can unite around kindness."
