The ERME Board, YERME and the Local Organisers
are happy to invite PhD students, post-doctoral
researchers, and master students in mathematics
education and others entering mathematics
education research to take part in the Seventh
YERME Summer School (YESS-7).

In line with the ERME Manifesto, the aims of the Summer School are:

o To let people from different countries meet
and establish a friendly and co-operative style
of work in the field of mathematics education

o To let people compare and integrate their
preparation in the field of mathemat-ics
education research in a peer discussion climate
with the help of highly qualified experts from
various research areas;

o To let people present their research ideas,
theoretical thoughts, methodological approaches
or problems, and preliminary research results, in
order to get sug-gestions (from other
participants and experts) about possible
developments, different perspectives, etc. and
open the way to possible connections with nearby
research projects and co-operation with
researchers in other countries.

PERIOD: The school begins at 9:00 am on August
5th and finishes on August 10th evening, 2014
(five and a half days of work plus one
