The MES8 Conference is a forum for discussing the social, political, cultural, and ethical dimensions of mathematics education. The Conference brings together mathematics educators from around the world to disseminate research that explores these dimensions of mathematics education, to discuss theoretical and methodological issues related to research of this type, to foster international co-operation in the area, and to develop a strong research community interested in these dimensions. The residential nature of the conference, in which all participants reside at the same venue, is a key feature of MES conferences and is designed to encourage the development of such an interactional community.
Previous conferences took place in Nottingham (UK, 1998), Montechoro (Portugal, 2000), Helsingør (Denmark, 2002), Gold Coast (Australia, 2004), Albufeira (Portugal, 2008), Berlin (Germany, 2010), and Cape Town (South Africa, 2013). Information on MES1 to 7, including access to proceedings (apart from MES4) is available at: http://MEScommunity.info.
Now we are now pleased to announce that the 8th Mathematics Education and Society Conference (MES8) will be held in Portland, Oregon, United States.
