Third and Final Announcement and Call for Papers

Transformations through Science, Mathematics and Technology
Education: Towards an Innovative and Sustainable Society

Jointly organised by the Science and Mathematics Education Centre,
Curtin University, Australia, and College of Education, Sultan Qaboos
University, Oman

Muscat, Oman, 4 - 7 NOVEMBER, 2012
Proposal submissions closes 31 July, 2012

Following the successful conferences in Vietnam, South Africa,
Canada, Thailand and most recently in Taiwan, this conference will
provide another intellectually challenging and culturally enriching
experience for science, mathematics and technology teachers, teacher
educators, researchers, and administrators from all education levels
from around the world.

The conference will include keynote addresses, workshops and paper
presentations. Papers may be presented either in Arabic or English
and participants will be invited to submit their presentations for
consideration for inclusion in the conference proceedings. A social
and sightseeing program will be organised in conjunction with the
conference.

Keynote Speakers:

The Sultanate of Oman provides a unique environment with its
diversity of landscape from a largely untouched coastline, some of
the oldest mountains in the world, wide pristine deserts to the
burgeoning capital Muscat, with its forts, palaces and old city wall.
It provides a living example where development and tradition can
co-exist hand in hand. In a country renowned for its security,
stability and the spirit of tolerance of its people, visitors are
guaranteed to hear many Ahlan wa Sahlan (you are welcomed) from the
ever smiling locals.
