Information about different types of submissions

The scientific program includes many different types of activities open to proposals from conference participants: 

Submissions of proposals

All submissions need to use the PME 46 template. Submissions to ConfTool are only possible if the presenting author is registered in the ConfTool system and will only be reviewed if the presenting author pays the non-refundable conference deposit before the submission deadline and if the rules for the number of submissions per presenting author are followed (see below). Furthermore, for accepted papers to be included in the proceedings, the presenting author has to make a full registration May 15, 2022 at the latest. More information about registrations.


All presentations have to promote the major goals of the IGPME. In addition, please note that there are restrictions on the number of possible contributions and the way in which they need to be submitted.

Each submission should be made by the presenting author. You are allowed to be presenting author of either a Research Report (including those bundled within a Colloquium) or an Oral Communication presentation but not both. You can thus submit only a Research Report or an Oral Communication, but not both simultaneously.

Applications for Pre-Submission Support

The PME pre-submission support for Research Reports and Oral Communications is intended for novice or inexperienced researchers who have limited access to expert advice and who would like to receive guidance from more experienced PME researchers. Applicants should submit their paper to the coordinator who is appointed by the International Committee. The coordinator will then assign the paper to an appropriate mentor and ensure that the communication between the mentor and novice researcher proceeds smoothly.


The PME pre-submission support coordinator is Merrilyn Goos (



Authors who wish to have a mentor to compose a Research Report or Oral Communication should contact the coordinator as early as possible, but no later than November 1, 2022. The pre-submission support papers should be accompanied by a statement in which the authors describe:

Mentors will correspond with the applicants and help strengthen their submitted papers. Please note that this procedure is meant to provide feedback on written reports. It is not meant as support for conducting research. This mentoring does not guarantee acceptance, as all submitted papers will still undergo the regular PME reviewing procedures.
