SATELLITE CONFERENCE

FLUMINENSE FEDERAL UNIVERSITY – NITERÓI – BRAZIL

JULY 30, 2018

UPDATE: WE’RE NOW OPENING A SPECIAL SESSION FOR
PRESENTATIONS IN PORTUGUESE AND SPANISH


PRESENTATION

GeoGebra is a free dynamic mathematics software for all levels of education that brings together geometry, algebra, spreadsheets, graphing, statistics, calculus and programming in one easy-to-use package. GeoGebra is a rapidly expanding community of millions of users located in just about every country. GeoGebra has become the leading provider of dynamic mathematics software, supporting science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education and innovations in teaching and learning worldwide.

The International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) offers a good opportunity for the GeoGebra Community to meet colleagues from all around the world. So, join us!


SESSIONS

There will be some keynote presentations highlighting important issues in both software and community developments (20 min for presentation + 10 min for questions). We welcome submissions for short presentations about interesting applications of GeoGebra, research (including the use of GeoGebra to research Mathematics) and local community activities, these presentations can be 10 min for presentation + 2 min for questions due to the shortage of time. Posters can be also presented in digital form.

There will be no parallel sessions. All participants will attend the presentations of the other colleagues.


SUBMISSIONS/REGISTRATION/DEADLINES

The submission process is now open, and it can be done using this online form. Important: we're now opening a special session for presentations in Portuguese and Spanish. Notice, however, that even in these cases, abstracts and presentation slides should be in English! The selected abstracts will be published in a digital book but only for those who, in fact, have presented their work on the day of the event.

New deadlines:

  • June 20, 2018: final date to submit your abstract
  • June 25, 2018: announcement of the result

Registration fee: US$ 10 to cover room use, coffee, and printed material. Registration fee can be paid in US$ or R$ on the conference day.


DATE AND LOCAL

The event will be held on July 30, 2018 (Monday) in the auditorium of the Building F (Faculty of Economics) at the Gragoatá Campus of the Fluminense Federal University, Niterói, RJ, Brazil.

Niterói lies across Guanabara Bay facing the city of Rio de Janeiro and forms part of the Rio de Janeiro Metropolitan Area. It can be reached from Rio de Janeiro by boat, by car or by bus. By boat: the ferry between Rio and Niteroi is a pleasant and affordable trip. It takes between 10 and 20 minutes to cross the bay, depending on the fare for a slow or fast boat from adjoining terminals at Praça XV. By car or bus: From Rio you just drive through the longest bridge in Brazil, the Ponte Rio-Niterói; just like the name says it connects both cities. It´s 13 km (8 mi) in length and there is a toll of R$ 4,90 (you pay 1 way only, coming from Rio). Buses from Rio: Lines 771, 770, 100 and others.
