- Group Activities -
The aim of the group activities is to achieve the exchange of information and ideas related to the PME.
Conference participants will need to select which sessions they would prefer to attend and indicate this in their registration. Group activities take place during the parallel time allotments, and have limited space.
Working Sessions (WS)
Proposals for a Working Session were submitted online via the registration system, by means of a one-page abstract. The deadline for the submission of a WS was March 1st, 2012.
In order for a proposal to be considered, the coordinator must pay the Conference Deposit by the submission date. Notification of receipt and acceptance of the proposal was mailed in April 2012. Accepted proposals for a Working Session for the current year will be included in the Conference Proceedings, provided the full Registration Fee for the coordinators is paid before May 16th, 2012. Two 90-minute sessions will be allocated to this activity.
Each Working Session is required to send a report of its activities to the PME Administrative Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org. This report will be included in PME News. The report is due by September 20th, 2012.
