- Group Activities -
The aim of the group activities is to achieve the exchange of information and ideas related to the PME.
Conference participants will need to select which sessions they would prefer to attend and indicate this in their registration. Group activities take place during the parallel time allotments, and have limited space.
Discussion Group (DG)
Proposals for a Discussion Group were submitted to the International program Committee by means of a one-page abstract. The deadline for the submission of DG proposals was March 1st, 2012.
Proposals of a DG were reviewed by the members of the IPC. Notifications of the decision of the program Committee were sent by April, 2012.
Accepted proposals for a Discussion Group will be included in the conference proceedings, provided the full Conference Fees for both the coordinators and the assistant coordinators are paid before May 16th, 2012.
Two 90-minute sessions will be allocated to Discussion Groups. Each Discussion Group is required to send a report of its activities to the Administrative Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org), so that it can be included in PME News. This report is due by September 20th, 2012.
