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.

You are all invited to submit papers. We follow previous MAVI conferences and use the PME template, which is found below. Papers are restricted to 10 pages including references. All submitted papers should explicitly address the field of mathematics-related affect, beliefs, attitudes, emotions, motivation, etc.
The papers will be peer-reviewed and authors to papers are expected to act as reviewers. Once a paper has been accepted, authors will be asked to present it at the conference. The papers will be published in a conference proceeding at the open conference system at Linnaeus University (which implies ISBN:number, doi-address and creative commons).

We travel by bus with a local guide from Växjö to Bergdala glassfactory where we will be treated to a traditional Swedish "Hyttsill" with entertainment and many traditional typical Swedish delicacies. This will be served in the actual area, the "glas hytta", where the glass blowing takes place. You will have an oppportunity to test your own glassblowing skills and visit the glass shop where you can purchase the glass produced at this site at a 20% discount.
