ICMI Studies

A major ICMI programme is the series of ICMI Studies. This set of activities was
launched in the mid-1980s and has acquired a growing importance and influence on
the field. It contributes to a better understanding and resolution of the challenges that
face multidisciplinary and culturally diverse research and development in mathematics
education. Each Study focuses on a topic or issue of prominent current interest in
mathematics education. Built around an international conference, it is directed towards
the preparation of a published volume intended to promote and assist discussion
and action at the international, regional or institutional level. Several ICMI studies,
which have already hold their study conference, will present their results.

ICMI Awards

The Executive Committee of the International Commission on Mathematical Instruction
(ICMI) has created three awards in mathematics education research:

– The Hans Freudenthal Award, for a major programme of research on mathematics
education during the past 10 years
The Felix Klein Award, for a lifelong achievement in mathematics education
The Emma Castelnuovo Award for Excellence in the Practice of Mathematics

At the opening ceremony of ICME-13, five ICME awards will be formally presented:
the Felix Klein Award and the Hans Freudenthal award from 2013 and 2015 and the
