PME43 is pleased to offer a special day (Early Researchers’ Day, ERD) for early career researchers who are also attending the PME43 conference. The Early Researchers’ Day will directly precede the main PME conference and will consist of presentations, working groups, and other kinds of sessions planned to be of value to those new to research in mathematics education.
The aim of the ERD is to provide early career researchers with opportunities to develop their research skills in various fields, establish new contacts, build networks among themselves and with respect to future PME conferences, and meet and work with international experts in the field.
The 2019 ERD will be held on the afternoon of Saturday 6 July 2019 and the morning of Sunday 7 July 2019 at the Groenkloof campus of the University of Pretoria. The event is being organised by Anthony Essien and Michal Tabach. Registration fees for ERD, coffee breaks, dinner on Saturday and lunch on Sunday are complimentary (no cost). Researchers can apply for participation at the same time as the full registration. As there are a limited number of places, priority will be given to current PhD students and post-doctoral students, and special consideration will be given to applicants from underrepresented countries.
