Seventh International Conference on the History of Mathematics Education (ICHME-7) University of Mainz, (Germany), 19. – 23. September 2022

The deadline for submission of papers is hereby extended to March 15th. In view of the current developments in the pandemic, we assume that the conference can take place in person at the planned time in Mainz on the beautiful river Rhine.

We are calling for papers for this seventh Conference, presenting original research on the history of mathematics education.
The main thematic issues of the Conference will be:

1- to compare recent research on the history of mathematics education at the international level;
2- to highlight and analyse the interrelations between the history of mathematics and the history of mathematics education;
3- to explore new methods of research, interpretation, and evaluation of sources;
4- to enrich the history of education with a comparative approach to the mathematical contents taught;
5- to take into account the sociological context to analyse the educational and professional scope of mathematics education;
6- to analyse the dissemination of conceptions and reforms in mathematical education internationally.

The history of mathematics education is now a well-established area of research. The major moment in its modern development was the creation and work of TSG 29, the history of mathematics teaching and learning, at ICME 10 in 2004, in Copenhagen.  Since then, it has been a subject of interest in various international meetings, e.g., at the ICME, HPM, CERME, and ESU conferences and an object of many studies and publications.

The first specialized research conference, entitled "Ongoing Research in the History of Mathematics Education", held in Garðabær near Reykjavík (Iceland) in 2009, led to a series of such specialized conferences. This will be the seventh international conference, this time held in Mainz, Germany. It will be the continuation of the successful work of the first six conferences, in Iceland (2009), Portugal (2011), Sweden (2013), Italy (2015), The Netherlands (2017) and France (2019).

Please send your abstracts of proposed contributions per Email to Natalia Poleacova ( before March 15, 2022.

The Johannes Gutenberg university Mainz and the the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt are the local organizers of ICHME 7.
