Ad Hoc Meetings are a new form of conference activity. During the conference, PME provides time slots and rooms for meetings of ‘ad hoc’ groups. The idea is that researchers can meet and discuss research topics which spontaneously came up during discussions of previous presentations at the conference. The Ad Hoc Meetings are reserved only for discussions; presentations or a continuation of a Research Report or an Oral Communication are not approved.
To organize an Ad Hoc Meeting, at least two persons should prepare an announcement with a short and precise description of the topic, the names of organizers and the preferred time slot, and deliver it to the PME Administrative Manager (AM). The AM will then assign times and rooms. Since there are only a few time slot and rooms, proposals will be accepted on a first-come first-served basis.
