The MES 8 Conference is a forum for discussing the social, political, cultural, and ethical dimensions of mathematics education. The Conference aims to:
  • Bring together mathematics educators from around the world to disseminate research that explores these dimensions of mathematics education.
  • Discuss theoretical and methodological issues related to research of this type, to foster international co-operation in the area. 
  • Develop a strong research community interested in these dimensions. 
The residential nature of the conference, in which all participants reside at the same venue, is a key feature of MES conferences and is designed to encourage the development of such an interactional community.

Previous conferences took place in Nottingham (UK, 1998), Montechoro (Portugal, 2000), Helsingør (Denmark, 2002), Gold Coast (Australia, 2004), Albufeira (Portugal, 2008), Berlin (Germany, 2010), and Cape Town, South Africa (2012).

The 8th Mathematics Education and Society Conference (MES 8) will take place in Portland, Oregon, USA and is being hosted by Portland State University.

We acknowledge the support of the university.
