Welcome to CERME 12

New dates: 2nd – 6th February 2022

CERME12 POSTPONED

CERME 12, the 12th congress of the European Society for Research in Mathematics Education will take place in Bolzano. Due to the Corona crisis, it is postponed from February, 2021 to February, 2-6, 2022 (with YERME day on February, 1). The local chair will be Giorgio Bolondi with co-chair Federica Ferretti, the IPC chair will be Jeremy Hodgen with co-chair Eirini Geraniou. We thank the LOC for their flexibility with the dates which will hopefully allow us to organize the conference in the CERME spirit of three C’s, communication, cooperation, and collaboration.
The deadline for submission of papers will hopefully be September, 15, 2021. We still discuss whether some virtual event can take place in February, 2021, so keep the old dates in the calendar.


Dear Colleagues,


It is with great pleasure and excitement that we invite you to attend the 12th Congress of the European Society for Research in Mathematics Education (CERME12), hosted by the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano. It will take place in Bozen-Bolzano (Italy), from the 2nd to 6th of February, 2022. CERME12 will be preceded by a YERME day for young researchers.


Italy has a longstanding tradition in mathematics education research. In the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, a young and vibrant athaeneum, there is a fresh and developing research community in this field. So we can offer the European researchers of mathematics education a good academic environment for sharing knowledge. We aim to bring together people active in the field of mathematics education research from all over Europe, and beyond.


The conference will be hosted in the central buildings of the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano. The plenary lectures will take place in the theatre of Bozen-Bolzano, the second producing theatre in Italy. The theatre and all locations for the thematic working groups are located in the centre of the town, near to the artistical and historical highlights and all accommodation facilities.

We look forward to welcoming you at CERME12 in Bozen-Bolzano.
Giorgio Bolondi & Federica Ferretti
Chair & Vice-Chair, Local Organizing Committee

Our engagement is to make CERME12 a green meeting! We hope that you will join us for reaching this target.
