Abstract

After a succinct description of the meeting opportunities for mathematics educators up to the 1950s, this chapter describes how, in the wake of the New Math/modern mathematics reform movement, meetings have become a fundamental tool for focusing on problems and potential of reform proposals. Bodies that have played the most relevant roles are ICMI, CIEAEM, OEEC/OECD, and UNESCO. In the conferences that followed the Royaumont Seminar, particular interest was turned to the search for new axioms for geometry, with many proposals and discussions. But modern mathematics was not just this; in other places, the attention was turned to more general questions of a methodological and social nature. This congress season has fostered the creation of new traditions such as the birth of journals specialized in mathematics education, and periodic conferences on mathematics education, as exemplified by the four-year ICMEs.
