The international network INDRUM (acronym for International Network for Didactic Research in University Mathematics) has been initiated by an international team of researchers in didactics of mathematics (see below).

The INDRUM research project is intended to contribute to the development of research in didactics of mathematics at all levels of tertiary education, with a particular concern for the development of young researchers in the field and for dialog with mathematicians. It has several objectives, among which:

  • elaboration of a scientific program in order to federate existing research in this field in Europe and in the world;
  • development and emergence of international collaborations by applying to project calls at all levels (local, regional, European, international);
  • reinforcement of the visibility of these research towards researchers in mathematics education and towards the mathematicians community;
  • contribution to the development of doctoral programmes in this field.

The conference INDRUM 2016, held March 31–April 2 in Montpellier, France, was the first edition of biennial and bilingual conferences (English, language of the hosting country) that address all aspects of research in didactics of mathematics at tertiary level, including students' and teachers' practices, teaching and learning of specific mathematical topics. Targeted audience of the INDRUM conferences are researchers in didactics of mathematics, mathematicians and any teacher or researcher that is interested in these issues.All papers and posters submitted to INDRUM enter a rigorous reviewed process in which they are reviewed by a member of the INDRUM Scientific Committee and another researcher experienced in the topic of the proposed communication. Based on the recommendations of these reviews, the Scientific Leaders of the conference make a decision about whether papers and posters will be included in the conference and the proceedings, which are published online subsequent to the conference on this website.
