SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMME INFORMATION
We are interested in hearing any of a wide range of topics on the
teaching of mathematics and statistics at university level. In the
past, for example, we have had papers on technology (computers,
graphics calculators, CAS), bridging courses, large first year
classes, modelling, teacher training, and the teaching of specific
topics (e.g. analysis, algebra).

Workshops of 1-2 hours duration are intended to enhance the
skills and broaden the perspective of their attendees. They should

in an area. Proposals for workshops should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that computer laboratory facilities will not be
available at the conference.
There will be two conference publications:
- A special issue of the International Journal of
Mathematical Education in Science and Technology
Delta '09 peer-reviewed best papers received
by a May will be published in the International Journal of
Mathematical Education in Science and Technology (iJMEST).
- DELTA’09 Proceedings book
This will include
peer-reviewed reports of teaching experiments/experiences and
research papers, and the abstracts of all conference
Participants may choose to only send an abstract.
The deadline for submission of papers for iMEST and abstracts for
