Keynote speakers:

Professor Michael Dorff , Chair of the Department of Mathematics, Brigham Young University, Utah, USA.

Professor Dorff leads the PIC Math program . A strong component of PIC Math involves students working as a group on a semester-long undergraduate research problem from business, industry, or government. Undergraduate research is a high impact teaching and learning practice and has been shown to improve students abilities in: Problem solving; Critical thinking; Independent thinking; and Communicating.

Dr. Borge's research area is algebra, geometry and topology.

Professor Knut Mørken Department of Mathematics and Department of Informatics, University of Oslo.

Professor Mørken's research area is differential equations and computational mathematics.

Professor Carl Winsløw Department of Science Education, University of Copenhagen

Professor Winsløw holds the Chair in Didactics of Mathematics.

Note:

For participants from Norwegian universities and university colleges MatRIC will cover one night (Wednesday 19 October) accommodation at Park Inn, together with food and conference costs. Participants are asked to fund their travel from other sources. Further details at the registration link.
