We will print your congress materials individually.




The Society of Didactics of Mathematics (Gesellschaft für Didaktik der Mathematik - GDM) has the pleasure of hosting ICME-13 in 2016 in Germany. The congress – to be held under the auspices of the International Commission on Mathematical Instruction (ICMI) – will take place at the University of Hamburg from Sunday, 24th July to Sunday, 31st July 2016. Hamburg is a bustling cosmopolitan port in the north of Germany, and with 1.8 million inhabitants its second largest city. It offers a perfect environment for a challenging congress.

We invite participants from all over the world to come to Hamburg and make ICME-13 a rich experience for all. ICME-3 took place in Germany in 1976 in Karlsruhe, and we are proud to welcome mathematics educators from all over the world back to Germany. The congress attendees will experience the very special characteristics of the German mathematics education discussion, which is closely connected to European traditions of didactics of mathematics and has seen important recent developments.

The Society of Didactics of Mathematics represents the German speaking community of didactics of mathematics, bringing together mathematics education groups from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Supported by the German Mathematical Society, the German Educational Research Association and the German Association for the Advancement of Mathematics and Science Education we are eager to welcome ICME-13 participants to Germany.
