HPM 2016 is the 9th quadrennial meeting of the International Study Group on the Relations Between the History and Pedagogy of Mathematics — the HPM Group. It is a satellite meeting of the 2016 International Congress on Mathematical Education (ICME 13) and is scheduled just before it.
These quadrennial meetings are a major activity of HPM to bring together individuals with a keen interest in the relationship between the history of mathematics and mathematics education.

Main theme and topics
The theme of HPM 2016 is “Mathematics in the Mediterranean." The program and activities are structured around the following topics:
1. Theoretical and/or conceptual frameworks for integrating history in mathematics education.
2. History and epistemology in students and teachers mathematics education: Classroom experiments and teaching materials.
3. Original sources in the classroom and their educational effects.
4. Mathematics and its relation to science, technology, and the arts: Historical issues and interdisciplinary teaching and learning.
5. Cultures and mathematics.
6. Topics in the history of mathematics education.
7. Mathematics in Mediterranean countries.

Deadlines:
Submission of Abstracts: October 31, 2015

Notification of acceptance or not of the submitted abstracts: 30 November 2015

Submission of full texts: January 31, 2016.

July 24-31, 2016
13th International Congress on Mathematical Education -
ICME 13
Hamburg, Germany
http://www.icme13.org/

For details on the complete scientific programme of ICME 13 and its structure and time-schedule, as well as on practical details, the registration process, the venue and social events, visit the official ICME 13 website http://www.icme13.org/ and especially its 2nd Announcement at
http://www.icme13.org/files/2nd_announcement.pdf

For ICME 13 flyer click here
More concise information on ICME 13 is available in this presentation, and in this video.

A major part of the scientific program of the ICMEs consists of Topic Study Groups (TSG). These are mini conferences designed to gather a group of the Congress participants who are interested in a particular area of Mathematics Education.

During ICME 13, there will be 54 TSGs in total.
Two of them are directly related to the HPM perspective, constituting an important activity of the HPM Group, namely

TSG 21: History of the teaching and learning of Mathematics  
co-chairs:
F. Furinghetti (Italy),
furinghetti@dima.unige.it
A. Karp (USA),
apk16@columbia.edu
 

TSG 25: The role of History of Mathematics  in Mathematics Education
co-chairs: C. Tzanakis (Greece),
tzanakis@edc.uoc.gr
X.Wang (China),
xqwang@math.ecnu.edu.cn

TSG 25 aims to provide a forum for participants to share their research interests and results, as well as their teaching ideas and classroom experience in connection with the integration of the History of Mathematics (HM) in Mathematics Education (ME).
The discussion within this TSG refers to all levels of education – from primary school, to tertiary education, including in-service teachers’ training.

The programme of TSG 25 will be structured around the following main themes:
1. Theoretical and/or conceptual frameworks for integrating history in mathematics education;
2. History and epistemology implemented in mathematics education: Classroom experiments and teaching materials, considered from either the cognitive or/and affective points of view;
3.
Surveys on the history of mathematics as it appears in curriculum and/or textbooks (including the history of mathematics in old mathematics textbooks);
4. Original sources in the classroom, and their educational effects;
5. History and epistemology as a tool for an interdisciplinary approach in the teaching and learning of mathematics and the sciences by unfolding their fruitful interrelations;
6. Cultures and mathematics fruitfully interwoven.

There will be the following types of contributions:
- Invited contributions,
- Submitted contributions
that will lead either to a paper, or a poster presentation.

Each participant can submit a proposal either for a paper or a poster presentation, but not for both.

Important: Please notice the following deadlines:
September 1 - October 1, 2015: Submission of papers
September 1 - October 1, 2015: Submission of posters, for authors intending to apply for a solidarity fund
January 1 - January 31, 2016:  Submission of posters, for authors not intending to apply for a solidarity fund
All proposals for paper and poster presentations will be submitted via the ICME 13 website.

The original announcement of TSG 25 has been detailed, especially on the procedure of submitting  proposals and time schedule. Please click here.
