The International Community of Teachers of Mathematical Modelling and Applications (ICTMA) invites you to participate in the 19th International Conference on the Teaching of Mathematical Modelling and Applications (ICTMA-19).
Location and dates
The conference will take place at the University of Hong Kong from 21 to 26 July 2019. Invited are experts, researchers, educators in the field as well as young researchers interested in research on the teaching of applications and modelling in all areas of mathematics education – primary through secondary schools, as well as colleges and universities, and the world of work.
With the theme of “Mathematical Modeling Education in West and East”, ICTMA-19 will be a valuable occasion for over 200 researchers and educators with expertise in mathematical modeling from across the globe to meet each other to discuss all aspects of teaching applications and modelling in all areas and at all levels of education.
China has fostered its unique mathematical education which is influenced by the learning from other countries such as Japan, European countries, US and former Soviet Union; and deeply rooted with its profound culture established in a 5000-year history of civilisation, particularly Confucianism.
Hong Kong is a Special Administrative Region of China, and as an international metropolis, it is an educational and cultural hub of West and East.
Hosting ICTMA 19 in Hong Kong:
allows Chinese educators and researchers to learn and connect with the International Community of Mathematical Modelling and Applications and thus boost the promotion in Hong Kong and the rest of China in this field.
is a valuable occasion for mathematics educators and researchers from across the globe to get to know more about the development in the promotion of mathematical modelling and applications in the Greater China region.
ICTMA-19 will be the first international conference on mathematical modeling held in Hong Kong. It will show to the world that Hong Kong and the rest of China is keen on putting mathematical modeling and STEM education forward and creating a collaborative momentum in this field among the international community.
