2017 Annual Conference of the North American Chapter of the
International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education

FAQ

The conference program will be available by August 2017.

I will need speakers for my presentation. How do I order these?

We cannot provide speakers for individual conference sessions, so you should plan to bring your own. We will have A/V assistance on site to help you troubleshoot any issues with projecting sound. There will be an LCD projector in each session room.

Why does my submission type say "Poster" or "Brief Research Report" if I submitted my proposal as a Full Research Report?

All Academic does not differentiate between submission type and accepted type. If your proposal was accepted in an alternate format, your submission type will be the alternate format. You should prepare your final paper according to the guidelines for the submission type that is reported in the system currently, not the submission type you indicated when submitting the proposal.

There is a Fed Ex Print and Ship store located 2 blocks from the Crowne Plaza Hotel. They can print posters and make other copies.

Printing fabric posters has become popular over the last few years (and they pack nicely in a suitcase). Here is one tutorial for doing this relatively cheaply. Other poster printing sites also are now offering this option for additional costs.

The maximum poster size is 48 inches wide and 36 inches high.

If my flight is cancelled, will I be reimbursed for a portion of the conference fee?

No refunds of conference fees are possible after 9/1/2017. We recommend you purchase travel insurance when booking your flight, to cover your travel costs if your trip needs to be cancelled. Here are two providers of travel insurance.

If you are coming from outside the U.S., remember to get a visa, if necessary! To allow enough time for your visa request to be processed by your country of origin, we recommend you check the U.S. Government's web site regarding visas.

If you are concerned about obtaining visa status for entry to the U.S. before registering, please contact Jill Newton, janewton@purdue.edu.
