Sent at the request of Alan Rogerson.
The complete First Announcement and Call for Papers is attached.
Update 2 on Montenegro Conference, September 21-26, 2014

Dear friends,

1. Please find attached the full and finalised
First Announcement. Please send your
papers/workshop summaries as soon as possible and
we will begin peer review for those who requested
it. Many thanks to those of you who offered to
help with this process.

2. Thank you to those who sent in feedback, 140
people are planning to attend the conference even
at this early stage.

3. Please send in your registration forms as soon
as convenient. There are local accounts for fee
payment in the UK, Australia and Poland.
Otherwise please make a bank to bank transfer of
the fee OR use Western Union IF it is more
economical for you. I have discovered a local
Western Union Office here in Ciechocinek so money
transfer there will be easy for me (and I hope
also for you). After you send in your form you
will receive precise details of how to pay the
fee, depending on which country you live in.

4. I am very grateful to Jasia Morska, a good
friend and colleague of Margaret and I since
1999, who will be working with me on the
organisation of the conference, and also as a
partner on a number of national and international
projects in the future.

5. It is a pleasure, on behalf of other
colleagues, to mention the important event below.

Best wishes,

Dr. Alan Rogerson

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.






Strand 1 - Technology: Strategies and
representations used in technology-based problem
solving approaches

Strand 2 - Creativity: Students' mathematical
creativity in mathematical problem solving

Strand 3 - Affect: Attitudes and emotions of
students, parents and teachers regarding
mathematical problem solving
