We want to thank you to everyone who attended and contributed the 3rd edition of International MATRIX Conference 2018 on October 29-31 at Cornellà de Llobregat and Barcelona, Catalonia. Your participation helped to make this event a great success and your enthusiasm and positive spirit helped make our time together both productive and fun.
Over 120 persons from 18 countries gave their time and resources to attend and to contribute, what made the conference a success and it was a great pleasure to see so many of you there! Hopefully you enjoyed the program and we hope that the cooperation with most of you will continue in the near future toward Matrix Conference 2020. We would like to give special thanks to speakers of plenary talks, conductors of conversation groups and all volunteers.
We thank you in advance for your comments and suggestions.
Indeed Matrix 2018 is not finished, new ideas and collaborations emerged from the conference, building a network, and what we learnt could be shared. In this direction Conference proceedings will be published including extended abstracts of plenary talks and surveys on Conversation groups.
…and, of course, this is the beginning for the next edition of MATRIX conference in 2020.
See you there!
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
