Now in its second year, the ComputerBased Math Education Summit 2012. is fast becoming the hub of a major change in math education. A broad crosssection 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 computerbased math education worldwide?"
Computerbasedmath.org is a project to build a completely new math curriculum with computerbased computation at its heart  alongside a campaign to refocus math education away from historical handcalculating techniques and toward relevant, realworld 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 ICTWhere Does Programming Fit? * Is CBM Winning Over the Critics? * Assessment and CBM * Prototyping a CBM Lesson * Games, Competitions, and New Modalities for Learning * StateoftheArt Technology for CBM * Society's Changing Needs for Math * STEM Skills for University and Industry * The Politics of Math
