Call for papers
This is an invitation to colleagues who would wish to present their paper at the conference.
Papers may be of two types:
Research papers, which have a rigorous theoretical underpinning.
Papers from teachers and others on research/experimental work which has been done in the classroom.
All papers submitted must relate to the theme of the conference and will be reviewed by a panel of experts, provided the guidelines and timetable, as set out below, are met.
Guidelines for papers
Deadlines for authors:
The full text of the papers to be presented should be submitted by March 25, 2015 to .

Final deadline for submission of papers following any necessary modifications requested by the referees is June 1, 2015. Papers received after June 1, 2015 will not be accepted for publication.
The accepted papers will then be published in the conference proceedings which will be handed out to participants at the start of the conference. Proceedings to SEMT '05, '07, '09 and '11 are registered in Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI Web of Science).
Apart from research papers, the participants are welcome to present a poster at the conference. The description of the poster to be published in the conference proceedings must be sent to by May 15th, 2015. The text will be reviewed by the chair of the international programme committee.
