You are invited to participate in CERME3, and in particular in
Theme Group 2.

<bold>CERME 3: Group 2
Affect and Mathematical Thinking (This includes the role of
beliefs, emotions, and other affective factors.)</bold>
The Third Conference of the European Society for Research in
Mathematics Education (CERME 3) takes place at Bellaria , Italy,
from February 28th (Friday) to March 3rd (Monday), 2003.
CERME is a conference organised by the European Society for
Research in Education, and is designed to promote
communication, cooperation and collaboration in research in
mathematics education in Europe. Thus it deliberately and
distinctively moves away from research presentations by individuals
towards collaborative group work. The main device for promoting
this is a range of Thematic Groups whose members will work
together in a common research area. This message refers to Group
2, one of twelve such groups.
We will have 12 hours over four days in which to meet and develop
our work on affect and mathematical thinking. Submitted papers
will be peer-reviewed as follows: three reviewers will be chosen, as
far as possible from the group of participants in Group 2. Thus the
process will NOT be blind review. If you submit a paper to Group 2,
you are likely to be asked to review one or more papers. (Please
indicate when submitting a paper if you think this is inappropriate.)
The Thematic Group discussions will be conducted around the
accepted papers. To enhance the discussions, we intend to
distribute the accepted papers before the meeting, accompanied
by discussion issues (proposed by the Group organisers). These
questions will be formulated both around the themes below and the
papers themselves. Thus all Group members, participants as well
as organisers, are expected to do some preparatory work
beforehand.

The organisers for Group 2 invite research-based papers on affect
and mathematical thinking, including the role of beliefs, attitudes
and emotions.
We will be particularly interested in theoretical, empirical or
didactical-practical papers that address one or more of the
following themes (though any papers of relevance
to the overall focus of the group will also be considered):
<paraindent><param>out</param><FontFamily><param>Symbol</param>=B7 <FontFa=

their
relationships with mathematical thinking, learning and
doing; </paraindent>

We wish to encourage papers from researchers world-wide.
Papers for Group 2 on Affect and Mathematical Thinking should be
submitted electronically by 15 September 2002, to Jeff Evans
(J.Evans@mdx.ac.uk), together with the submission form. This
form and details of format for papers are given on the CERME3 web
site (see above for URL).
