Following the tradition of ICMI Studies, this Study will comprise two parts: the Joint Study Conference and the production of the Joint Study book. The Joint Study Conference will be merged with the IASE 2008 Round Table Conference.
The Joint Study Conference (ICMI Study and IASE
Round Table Conference) will take place at the Instituto
Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores,
The second part of the Joint Study – the Joint Study book – will be produced after the conference and will be published in the ICMI Study Series.

Proposed papers for contributions to the Joint Study Conference should be submitted by e-mail no later than October 1, 2007, to the IPC Study Chair (Carmen Batanero, email@example.com). Papers should be relevant to the Joint Study focus and research questions, as described in the Discussion Document (which is available at the Joint Study Website (http://www.ugr.es/~icmi/iase_study/) or directly at http://www.ugr.es/~icmi/iase_study/Discussion_Document.pdf.
