We are pleased to invite you to the international

East - West Conference on Mathematics Education (EWCOME 2017)

at the University of Social Sciences and Humanities, Warsaw, Poland
August 24 – 26, 2017
The Conference theme - Breaking Down Barriers

The barriers are between: mathematics and science, various subjects in education, diverse cultures, and scientists and teachers; barriers between mathematics and the general public; replacing the image of a cold and austere subject with mathematics of warm, human, inviting and challenging beauty. Our goal is to break down barriers by bringing together different approaches to education from different parts of the world.

The Conference is designed to break down these barriers through
  1. the creation of innovative methods in mathematics education aligned with other subjects,
  2. the application of new methodologies from science and art education, and
  3. the application of the best teaching methods from around the world: East and West.
