Attendance was about 3500 participants from 94 countries. The first and to the second volume have the same preface describing the structure that is becoming the norm for the ICME congresses (see Contents). In the Presidential Address, Miguel de Guzman stresses the need for a Solidarity Program and a Solidarity Fund in Mathematics Education. In his concluding address, the Secretary General Mogens Niss reminds the audience that the ICMEs are held on behalf of and under the auspices of ICMI. He gives a survey on the activities of ICMI and underlines the complexity of the field of mathematics education.

Two volumes, format about 23,5 cm x 15 cm; XXV + 495 + XII + 370 pages.
