In response to the positive feedback and outcomes from the 2015 Newcastle Mathematics Educators' Conference (NMEC I):

"For Maths' Sake: Let's Get Together!"

we are pleased to advise that the University of Newcastle's IMSITE team will be hosting a follow-up conference this year: the 2016 Newcastle Mathematics Educators' Conference (NMEC II):

"For Maths' Sake: Let's Stay Connected!"

Due to the capacity of our venue, limited seats are available and therefore invitations to school teachers will be undertaken by inviting school principals to nominate one or two teachers from their school.

Nominations due by
Monday 9th May, 2016
