On behalf of the Museu de Matemàtiques de Catalunya (MMACA) and the National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath), the Scientific Committee, and the Local Organizing Committee, we invite you to participate in the III International Conference MATRIX, aimed at mathematics museums and outreach centers, to be held in Cornellà de Llobregat and Barcelona, Catalonia, from the 29th to the 31st of October, 2018.
MATRIX = Mathematics Awareness, Training, Resource & Information eXchange
The third edition of MATRIX will bring together representatives of mathematics museums from all around the world; creators and organizers of mathematical exhibitions; and people dedicated to the dissemination of mathematics for the general public.
The previous editions (Dresden 2014, Leeds 2016) became an important meeting point, generating shared projects, such as Mathspaces, exhibitions and specific collaborations. We want to continue in this direction, sharing ideas, experiences and good practices, dealing with hot topics such as the relationship between formal and non-formal education, museums and research centers, teacher training, modelling reality, experimentation and virtual simulation, statistics in the museums (and for the museums), mathematics and other STEAM disciplines.
The final goal, however, is to help improve the perception and involvement of society regarding mathematics.
We hope that you will be able to attend and contribute to the success of the meeting.
Josep Rey Nadal – President of MMACA
Cindy Lawrence – Executive Director of MoMath
