Previous Conferences in the Series

The first Conference on Research in Mathematics Education in Ireland (MEI 1) was held in St Patrick’s College, Drumcondra (SPD) in 2005. The mission of the conference was to bring together those with an interest in mathematics education research in Ireland to:

  • discuss recent research and developments;

  • consider future directions for such research in Ireland; and

  • improve linkages and encourage research collaboration among mathematics education communities in Ireland.

Since 2005 there have been 7 MEI conferences. A link to the proceedings of each of the conferences can be found below
