I have the following announcement to share with you.


The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics has applied to the National
Science Foundation for funds to permit travel support for U.S. mathematics
teachers at all levels, mathematics supervisors, teacher educators and
researchers to participate in the 1996 International Congress on
Mathematics Education (ICME-8) in Seville, Spain, July 14-21, 1996. In
anticipation of the availability of funds, the Council is preparing to
administer the selection process.

Applications forms for support and the First Announcement of the congress
may be obtained by writing to Department I, National Council of Teachers of
Mathematics, 1906 Association Drive, Reston, VA 22091-1593, by calling
(703) 620-9840 ext. 113, by faxing (703) 476-2970 or by e-mail at Completed applications must be received in the NCTM
office by March 15, 1996. Applicants will be notified by April 30, 1996.
Women and members of minority groups are especially encouraged to apply.

Applications will be evaluated by a panel of mathematics educators and
mathematicians under the terms of a proposal submitted to the National
Science Foundation (NSF). Should the proposal be funded, the following
condition will apply: applicants who are given grants for support of their
travel to ICME-8 may not supplement them with any other NSF funds.
Currently, it is the intention of NSF's funding program to provide no
additional funds on its other regular grants for travel to ICME-8 in 1996.
However, an individual who does not receive a travel grant may use regular
NSF grant funds, subject to the usual restrictions and prior approval

Thanks for you attention.

All good wishes.
