Technology and its Integration into Mathematics Education

Guest Editors:

Submission time line: From July 15th to October 6th, 2012


In 1992, the ACDCA (Austrian Center for Didactics of Computer Algebra) began a conference series focusing on the use of symbolic calculation software in mathematics education. The first international conference dedicated to the use of Derive symbolic calculation software took place in 1994. After that time, ACDCA and Derive conferences were held in alternating years. In 2002, the two conferences were merged into the first TIME (Technology and its Integration into Mathematics Education) Conference. In 2012, Derive conferences are renamed as Conferences for CAS in Education & Research.


IJTME exists to provide a medium by which a wide range of experiences in the use of computer software and hand-held technology in mathematics education can be presented, discussed and criticised so the best practice can be assimilated into the new curricula of schools, colleges and universities.  The main criterion of acceptance is that the material should make a contribution to knowledge in this field. The types of contribution normally considered for publication in IJTME are:

It is anticipated that the TIME submissions will mainly fall into the first two of the above categories. The TIME conference submissions will be refereed by members of the conference’s academic committee, who will decide which papers should be submitted for the special edition.

For this TIME IJTME-SI, we welcome extended versions of selected papers presented at TIME 2012.


It is essential that submissions to be considered for publication in The International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education conform to the details set out below. The file SamplePaper.doc has been included as a template.

A brief biographical note on the author(s) and the address for correspondence (electronic and postal) must be included. 

  1. Contributions must use Microsoft Word or Word Compatible documents.
  2. The SamplePaper.doc shows an example of a final layout.
  3. The length of the papers must not exceed 6 pages when in the standard IJTME format. The SamplePaper.doc contains just over 4000 words as well diagrams.
  4. The submission should be written in standard English. Straightforward language is preferred to the obscure or complex. The use of complex statistical evidence is not considered to be intrinsically valuable.
  5. We kindly request authors to send their contribution to be reviewed by an English-speaking native person before submitting it.
  6. The document should be accompanied by an abstract/summary of between 100 and 150 words.
  7. Each illustration (figure or table) must be of sufficiently high quality.  The position of each illustration in the text should be made clear and should have an explanatory legend or title.
  8. References should be listed in alphabetical order at the end of the paper. For different examples, see the file IJTME_authors_notes_references.pdf.

Submission procedure
The International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education (IJTME) welcomes the opportunity to publish papers from the TIME conference. Up to two issues will be set aside and these will contain 8 papers each. The papers for the special edition will be subject to a maximum length of 6 pages to enable a good spread of papers to be included in each edition.

TIME IJTME-SI is now open. In order to speed up the review process, remember to send your contribution to be reviewed by an English-speaking native person before submiting it. In order to submit your proposal, you have to attach and send it to

The dead line for submissions has been extended to October 6th.
