Now in its second year, the Computer-Based Math Education Summit 2012. is fast becoming the hub of a major change in math education. A broad cross-section of leaders with a stake in STEM education from industry, technology, government, and education will attend to answer the question, "What are the steps to delivering computer-based math education worldwide?"

Computerbasedmath.org is a project to build a completely new math curriculum with computer-based computation at its heart - alongside a campaign to refocus math education away from historical hand-calculating techniques and toward relevant, real-world and conceptually interesting topics.

The summit will take place on 1 and 2 November 2012 at The Royal Institution, London. http://www.computerbasedmath.org/events/londonsummit2012

Themes of this year's summit will include:

* What's In, What's Out for the Computer Based Math (CBM) Curriculum?
* Computer Science, Math, and ICT--Where Does Programming Fit?
* Is CBM Winning Over the Critics?
* Assessment and CBM
* Prototyping a CBM Lesson
* Games, Competitions, and New Modalities for Learning
* State-of-the-Art Technology for CBM
* Society's Changing Needs for Math
* STEM Skills for University and Industry
* The Politics of Math
