MERGA Conference 2022

Ya Pulingina, welcome to the 44th  Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (MERGA) Conference 2022. On behalf of the Local Organising Committee, I am excited to announce that the MERGA 44 conference will be held physically on the University of Tasmania‚Äôs Inveresk Precinct Campus, 3-7 July 2022, in Launceston, Tasmania. We are optimistic that this conference might be our first opportunity to meet physically with our MERGA colleagues in several years. However, we recognise that there remains ongoing uncertainty with respect  to travel restrictions, and will thus be planning for a hybrid conference, with online access for those unable to travel, to both attend others presentations and present themselves.  

Registration is now open (Friday 26 November).

From the MERGA President

It is with great excitement that I invite you to attend the 44th annual conference of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (MERGA), hosted by the University of Tasmania, Launceston Campus.  The 2022 conference will be presented in hybrid form to allow everyone the opportunity to attend, whether it be face-to-face or online.  We are particularly looking forward to welcoming back our long-time MERGA members and teachers, early career and experienced researchers who are new to MERGA. The theme for MERGA44 is Mathematical Confluences and Journeys, providing an important platform for participants to come together to consider the ways in which we can bring our research together to influence the field of mathematics education and educational policy throughout Australasia. I look forward to welcoming you to MERGA44 and what will be an exciting and enriching conference and celebration of our individual and collective resilience, and of course, our research.

Kind Regards,


 Professor Catherine Attard 

President, Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (MERGA)
