Michèle Artigue (France) Will Receive the Luis
Santaló Medal Awarded by the Inter-American
Committee on Mathematics Education

The Executive Committee of the Inter-American
Committee on Mathematics Education
( is very pleased to
announce its decision to award the Luis Santaló
Medal to the French Researcher and Educator,
Michèle Artigue, ex President of the
International Commission on Mathematical

Michèle Artigue

This medal is the most important international
recognition awarded by IACME. It carries the name
of Luis Santaló, who was a Spanish-Argentinian
mathematician and educator, President of IACME,
and who contributed significantly to the teaching
and learning of Mathematics in Latin America. It
is presented every four years to someone who has
provided considerable support to the actions of
IACME and to Mathematics Education in the

Luis Santaló Medal

In presenting this prestigious award to IACME considered:

. Michèle Artigue's significant results in
research in Mathematics Education, which have
been an important intellectual reference for our
education community.

. The many actions of cooperation, collaboration
and solidarity with IACME and our region that
Michèle has provided for many years: supporting
students, graduate programs, research, and
academic exchanges; and building bridges from our
region to the rest of the academic world.

. In the last 15 years, just to mention another
representative aspect of her contributions, she
has participated in IACME XI in Blumenau (Brazil)
in 2003, in IACME XII in Querétaro (México) in
2007, in IACME XIII in Recife (Brazil) in 2011,
and will be in IACME XIV in Chiapas (México) in
2015. Also, in November of 2013, she participated
in the First Congress on Mathematics Education in
Central America and the Caribbean in Santo
Domingo (República Dominicana). Her participation
has always been characterized by an extraordinary
disposition, kindness and affection.

. Her efforts have permitted IACME to strengthen
its ties with the International Commission on
Mathematical Instruction and with the Mathematics
Education international community.

The medal will be presented on May 3, 2015 during
the inaugural ceremonies of IACME XIV
( in the city of
Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas (México). On that
occasion Michèle will give the opening plenary

In the name of the Executive Committee of IACME,
I would like to invite the international
Mathematics Education community, and in
particular colleagues from the Americas, to
congratulate Michèle.

Best regards

Angel Ruiz
