Dear colleague
We would love to count on your participation and contribution to the conference below and we kindly request you to disseminate this announcement to your contacts.
The Problem@Web International Conference on Technology, Creativity and Affect in Mathematical Problem Solving, jointly promoted by the University of Algarve and by the Institute of Education of the University of Lisbon, will be held in Vilamoura, Portugal on May 2-4, 2014.

The conference stems from a Portuguese research project (The Problem@Web Project) focusing on mathematical problem solving that extends beyond the mathematics classroom. The research field is based on mathematical problem solving competitions of an inclusive nature taking place through the Internet. Three main topics have been addressed within the project aims: students’ use of digital tools in mathematical problem solving, creative solutions to mathematical problems, and affect in problem solving and competitions, including parental involvement.

The conference official language will be English.
