NOMAD workshop


for doctoral students in mathematics education

NOMAD, Nordic Studies in Mathematics Education, and the National Centre for Mathematics Education (NCM) at the University of Gothenburg arrange a one-day workshop, on how to write an article for NOMAD, for doctoral students from the Nordic and Baltic countries annually.

The workshop takes place May 31, 2023 at NCM in Gothenburg.

 NOMAD, Nordic Studies in Mathematics Education, and the National Centre for Mathematics Education (NCM) at the University of Gothenburg invite doctoral students to a one-day workshop on how to write an article for NOMAD.

The workshop will give the participants an opportunity to get feedback on their draft articles. The submitted manuscript should fit the scope of NOMAD and be complete following the guidelines of NOMAD (see information for authors and reviewers). Participants will be assigned to review one paper prior to the workshop. The review report is to be sent to the authors about two weeks before the workshop. Each participant will act as opponent on the reviewed manuscript at the workshop.

The workshop will be held by the editors of NOMAD, Britta Eyrich Jessen (University of Copenhagen), Cecilia Kilhamn (University of Gothenburg), Heidi Krzywacki (University of Helsinki), Jake McMullen (University of Turku), Johan Häggström (University of Gothenburg), Jonas Bergman Ärlebäck (University of Linköping) and Martin Carlsen (University of Agder).

The number of participants is limited. When the maximum number is reached, registration will close. NCM will pay for the workshop programme. Participants will organise and pay for their own travel costs and lodging.

To register for the workshop, send an e-mail no later than April 26, 2023, to Johan Häggström,

The e-mail should include the following (in English):

  1. Name
  2. University and department
  3. Short description (max 300 words) of your doctoral research project and name/s of your supervisor/s.
  4. A first version of a complete manuscript.
