The purpose of the conference is to share current research in mathematics education. The conference planning committee encourages proposals of completed research studies as well as works-in-progress. This is an excellent conference for faculty and advanced graduate students to share their evolving programs of research and receive constructive comments on preliminary framings/findings as well as on finished studies.

RCML publishes conference proceedings of selected papers that have been accepted as conference presentations. Acceptance of a proposal does not guarantee acceptance of the associated publication for the proceedings; however, all authors whose conference proposal has been accepted are invited to submit a paper based on their proposal. Manuscripts proposed for the conference proceedings are due by October 31, 2017. Before submitting your paper, please review the Proceedings Submission Guidelines here. Conference proposals and papers submitted to the RCML Proceedings are peer reviewed. The lead author on the proceedings paper must register for the conference.
