Attendance was about 3500 participants from 98 countries. In the preface to the second volume, Bernard Hodgson reports that the IPC decided to maintain the practice introduced at ICME-7 of having a significant number of lectures. Therefore, in addition to the plenary lectures, the working groups and topic groups, there were about sixty invited regular lectures, a selection of which (33) is published in Volume 2. In his final address, Secretary General Mogens Niss reminds the audience that the ICMEs are held on behalf of and under the auspices of ICMI. He provides an overview of the activities of ICMI and on the fields of interests of mathematics education.

Two volumes, format about 23 cm x 15 cm; 539+485 pages.
