The goal of a seminar is the professional development of PME participants, especially early researchers and/or first comers, in different topics related to scientific PME activities. This encompasses, for example, aspects like research methods, academic writing or reviewing. A seminar is not intended to be only a presentation but should involve the participants actively. PME can give a certificate of attendance to participants of the seminar, if requested by the proposers. Facilitating a seminar will not count as a contribution for the existing restrictions on conference contributions. Since seminars take place in the same time slots as research forums, it will not be possible for one presenter to participate in both these categories.
A SE application must include:
Two-page proposals for a SE must be submitted not later than 1 March 2019. The IPC reviews and selects SEs during the second IPC meeting. Notification of the decision of the IPC to accept or reject a proposal for a SE will be communicated in April 2019.
The two-page proposals of accepted seminars will be included in the conference proceedings. Two 90-minute sessions will be allocated to seminars. After presentation, the coordinators of each SE are required to send a report of its activities to the PME Administrative Manager (e-mail address: mailto:[email protected]). This report may be included in the PME newsletter. This report is due by the end of September 2019.
