First Announcement


After successful conferences held at Pécs, Hungary (2007), Hagenberg,
Austria (2009), Hluboká nad Vltavou, Czech Republic (2010), Novi Sad,
Servia (2012), Halle, Germany (2014) and Targu Mures, Romania (2016) we
are delighted to announce that the CADGME conference continues. The team
from Department of Mathematics and Center for Informatics and Systems of
the University of Coimbra has volunteered to host the conference in 2018
in beautiful city Coimbra. As for the last CADGME conferences we want to
create a forum for all European colleagues, and for all interested
academics from around the globe to exchange ideas and nurture
collaboration. We hope that you will join us in Coimbra on 26 – 29 June

In Coimbra, we will have amazing keynote lectures, regular talks and
posters, but additionally we will discover several new areas in the
already proposed working groups: 1) Assessment in CAS-DGS environments;
2) Evaluation of step-wise problem solving with TPS; 3) TAME -
Technology, Arts and Mathematics Education. Beyond these topics we are
still waiting for submissions for other working groups and workshops.
Futhermore, the will be an opportunity to participate in an Educational
Research Design workshop mainly catered for masters and PhD students,
but colleauges interested in learning about educational researh
methodologies are welcome to attend. More details of the programme is below.

Keynote speakers

Jaime Carvalho e Silva (University of Coimbra, Portugal) The challenges
schools face with the development of Computer Algebra

Kristof Fenyvesi (Jyvaskyla, Finland) STEAM-ing Up Learning with
GeoGebra: from Explorations in Arts and Design to Robot-making

Philippe R. Richard (University of Montréal, Canada) The Utility of the
Automatic Reasoning Tools for Performing Mathematical Work

Ornella Robutti (University of Torino, Italy) Mathematics teachers
working in collaboration with the use of technology

KatarzynaWinkowska-Nowak (SWPS University, Poland) GeoGebra role in
building mental models and improving computational thinking skills

Call for papers

The aim of the conference is to continue offering a forum for academics
in Europe in closer connection with Western European colleagues to share
their experiences and practices with technology-assisted mathematics
teaching with colleagues from all around the world. Hence, we kindly
invite colleagues - everyone from everywhere - to participate and
contribute to the conference. The conference language is English.

How to contribute

Contributed talks
The talks will be given in parallel sessions; the length is 20 minutes
plus 10 minutes for discussion.

Research results can be presented on posters. There will be time
allocated to present and discuss posters.
Working groups
Talks will be organised around topics (proposed list is below). We
welcome proposals of working groups by 29 January, 2018 in which
participants can contribute talks/papers. In working group sessions
plenty of time will be allocated for in-depth discussion of
talks/papers. Already accepted working groups:

1) Assessment in CAS-DGS environments;
2) Evaluation of step-wise problem solving with TPS;
3) TAME - Technology, Arts and Mathematics Education

We encourage participants and software developers to organize workshops.
Proposals (max 500 words) should be submitted by 29 January, 2018.
Please let us know about the technical facilities needed for the
workshop. The time limit is 90 minutes per workshop.

Electronic submission of proposals and abstracts Submission of proposals
for workshops/working groups and abstracts of contributed talks and
posters will be made electronically through a dedicated EasyChair Web page.

Publication, proceedings
The abstracts of contributed talks and posters will be available on the
conference Web page. Authors should comply with Easy-Chair,
“Instructions For Authors” regarding the style/template to use. 

Post Conference Publication
We are in discussion with several journals that might publish a special
issue with papers presented at CADGME-2018.

Topics for contribution

The conference will be arranged around four important themes — Teaching,
Learning, Curriculum and Assessment — using any digital tools. In the
past years, we paid particular attention to Computer Algebra Systems
(CAS), Dynamic Geometry Software (DGS), Theorem Proving Systems (TPS)
and combinations of these technologies, but we would like to open to new
horizons in technology-related areas not only mathematics, but science,
engineering, technology and arts education (so called STEM disciplines).
This includes, but is not restricted to, contributions to the following

    • The impact of technology uses on mathematics and STEAM teaching
    • The changing role of the teacher
    • Teacher learning
    • Distance learning and digital tools
    • Arts for the teaching of mathematics

    • The impact of digital tools on students’ learning
    • Students’ attitudes toward digital tools
    • Understanding and knowledge with respect to digital tools
    • Algebraic skills and digital tools
    • Instrumentation
    • Creativity and digital tools

    • Design of learning environments and curricula
    • Implementation of curricula and classroom practices
    • Innovative practices
    • Promises of digital tools for curriculum development and

    • Assessment with digital tools
    • Web-based assessment systems
    • Problem solving and stepwise use of digital tools
    • Intelligent Assessment
