CERME (ERME Conferences) is a Congress organised by ERME designed to foster a communicative spirit. It deliberately and distinctively moves away from research presentations by individuals towards collaborative group work. Its main feature is a number of thematic groups whose members will work together in a common research area.

NORSMA is the abbreviation for the The Nordic Research network on Special Needs Education in Mathematics. Their interest is about students with mathematical difficulties.

As in the Nordic countries special needs education in mathematics has developed. The 1st NORSMA conference took place in Agder in 2001 and conferences hold between NORSMA 1 (2001) to NORSMA 6 (2011) each had an overall theme. From NORSMA7 (2013) hold in Aarhus University, the Nordic Network Conferences begins at a mature state with presentations in a broad range of themes.


The 9th conference of The Nordic Research network on Special Needs Education in Mathematics (NORSMA) will take place in Vaasa, Finland, between 21 May – 23 2018. The conference will be hosted by the Åbo Akademi University.
