Call for Intention to Bid to organise and host ICME15 in 2024

ICMI is hereby inviting its state representatives, national/regional
organisations and academic institutions to consider the possibility
of organising and hosting the International Congress on Mathematical
Education in July/August 2024.

At the present, ICMI is inviting a declaration of intent which should
be received by December 1st, 2017. The full bid document should be
submitted by November 1st, 2018.

When considering and preparing the submission of a declaration of
intent to organise and host this conference, ICMI advises the
potential candidates to consider the following (which will be
required as part of a full bid document due in November 1st, 2018):

- Provide a statement explaining why ICME should take place in the
proposed state. Please point out particular highlights but also
address honestly potential weaknesses or difficulties.

- State that the bid is presented in agreement with the ICMI Country

- Provide a list of national and regional organisations
(professional associations, universities,
governmental/non-governmental organisations, others) and prominent
mathematicians and/or mathematics educators who support the idea of
organising and hosting the conference, and will contribute to the
organisational efforts.

- Nominate the convenor of the conference and the head of the local
organising committee, prepare a brief CV for each of these two
persons and provide a personal letter of intent signed by them. Bear
in mind that whereas all the members of the local organising
committee are appointed by the organisers, the members of the
international program committee (the IPC - in charge of the
scientific components of the conference) are appointed by ICMI.

- Provide a statement confirming that participants from all over the
world (regardless of their nationality) will be allowed freedom of
entrance to the hosting state (except for the possible need of a

- Provide a concise description of the venue (and its facilities)
available to host the academic activities of the conference (expected
attendance of 2500-3000 participants).

- Provide a description of the amount/type of accommodation which
can be offered, including an adequate amount of inexpensive lodging.
Provide some information about distances to the venue and
availability of convenient transportation.

- Provide an estimate of the budget and list possible sources of
funding (including intention to approach commercial, governmental or
philanthropic entities). Bear in mind that the registration fees to
be collected from the participants should be within the range of the
fees charged in previous ICMEs. Please take into account: personnel
costs, publication costs (Proceedings, website, program,
photocopies), rental of the venue, equipment, social events
(reception, farewell, happy hour, excursion, coffee breaks), invited
participants (travel and accommodation of plenary speakers), costs of
the organisation of two IPC meetings (travel and accommodation of
15-20 members for two one-week periods), insurance and miscellaneous

- Provide an estimated timeline for the publication of the Proceedings.

ICMI recognises that not all states have similar conditions to mount
a potentially successful bid. Nevertheless ICMI acknowledges that
every bid will have its own advantages and highlights as well as its
own weaknesses and difficulties. Therefore all states are encouraged
to consider bidding according to the guidelines below. The Executive
Committee of ICMI will judiciously weigh the weak and strong points
of all bids, taking into special consideration proposals from regions
in which ICME has not been held in the past, and for which the
conference will considerably boost mathematics education.

ICMI warmly recommends potential bidders to approach previous
conference convenors in order to gain first-hand information about
the character and scope of the task.

All members of the Executive Committee (EC) of ICMI, and certainly
the President and the Secretary General, will be open for
consultation towards the preparation of the proposal.

Please provide your letter of intent (acknowledging each of the above
points) by December 1, 2017.

Address the letter and/or any related question to:

Abraham Arcavi, Secretary General of ICMI

Jerry P. Becker
Department of Curriculum & Instruction
College of Education and Human Services
Southern Illinois University Carbondale
625 Wham Drive / MC 4610
Carbondale, Illinois 62901
