INDRUM 2018, the second conference of the International Network for Didactic Research in University Mathematics, will be held April 5 – 7, 2018 in Kristiansand at the MatRIC Centre (University of Agder, Norway). The themes to be adressed at INDRUM 2018 will build on those adressed at INDRUM 2016 and will cover a range of issues concerning teacher and student practices and the teaching and learning of specific mathematical topics at undergraduate and post-graduate level as well as across disciplines. The target audience of this conference is researchers  in didactics of mathematics, mathematicians and teachers and researchers who are interested in these issues. The organisation of the conference will comprise: a plenary talk (speaker to be announced shortly); an expert panel discussion; 4 to 6 thematic working groups (6 hours each); short communications in parallel (two sessions of 1h 30min) and a standing poster exhibition. We are pleased to announce that Duncan Lawson (Newman University, United Kingdom) will be the plenary speaker. Preconference proceedings will be distributed to registered participants. The final version of the proceedings will be posted on the open archive HAL. A book reporting from INDRUM 2016 and INDRUM 2018 will be published in the Routledge ERME Series.

This Conference falls within the activities of the research project INDRUM, which has been initiated by an international team of researchers in didactics of mathematics at university level. This research project aims to contribute to the development of research in didactics of mathematics at all levels of tertiary education, with a particular focus on support for young researchers in the field and for dialogue with mathematicians. The project has several objectives, including:

  • elaboration of a scientific program in order to network existing researchers in this field in Europe and in the world 
  • development and emergence of international collaborations by responding to project funding calls at all levels (local, regional, European, international)
  • enhancing the visibility of these research areas for researchers in mathematics education and for the community of mathematicians
  • contribution to the development of doctoral programmes in the field.

For up to date information on how to contribute and attend the conference, we invite you to consult the conference website that will be regularly updated: http://indrum2018.sciencesconf.org/.
