Mavi 22

MAVI 22

It is our great pleasure to announce the 22nd MAVI (Mathematical Views). The conference took place from 11 am on September 13th until 1 pm on September 15th at Linnaeus University in Växjö, Sweden.

Conference closed. Thanks to everyone who participated

The MAVI conferences were initiated in 1995 and since then the conference has been an important meeting point for researchers interested in affect and mathematics education. The spirit of the conference is to enhance dialogue and collaboration within our community where the meeting between junior and senior researchers makes the conference unique and valuable. Peer-reviewed proceedings, as well as insightful discussions during the presentations, guarantee the quality of the researches presented.

The complete programme can be found below. 

The conference is held with the financial support of the Board for Teacher Education at Linnaeus University.
