Research focused on the analysis and development of textbooks (in conventional format or digital media) has recently gained great prominence in the international arena of research in mathematics education. This prominence is reflected, for example, in the International Conference on School Mathematics Textbooks (ICSMT), held in Shanghai in 2011, and in the ZDM special issue (Volume 45, Issue 5, September 2013), on textbooks research in mathematics education.
Also reflecting this trend, the first International Conference on Mathematics Textbook Research and Development (ICMT-2014) took place at the University of Southampton (UK), from 29 to 31 July 2014. About 180 participants, from 30 different countries, attended ICMT-2014. ICMT-2014 proceedings are available on http://eprints.soton.ac.uk/374809/.

It is our pleasure to announce the II International Conference on Mathematics Textbook Research and Development / II Conferência Internacional em Pesquisa e Desenvolvimento de Livros Didáticos de Matemática (ICMT2), to be held from 7 to 11 May 2017, at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) and at the Federal University of the State of Rio de Janeiro (UNIRIO), Brasil.
The conference is organized by the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro – UFRJ), the Federal University of the State of Rio de Janeiro (Universidade Federal do Estado do Rio de Janeiro – UNIRIO), the State University of São Paulo (Universidade Estadual Paulista – UNESP) and the Federal University of Pernambuco (Universidade Federal de Pernambuco – UFPE). It is supported by the Brazilian Mathematics Education Society (Sociedade Brasileira de Educação Matemática – SBEM), the Brazilian Society of Mathematics (Sociedade Brasileira de Matemática – SBM), and the Brazilian Society of Applied and Computational Mathematics (Sociedade Brasileira de Matemática Aplicada e Computacional – SBMAC).
ICMT2 will feature different activities, including plenary lectures, symposia, workshops, oral presentations, posters and special activities addressed to teachers. Accepted and presented papers will be published after a peer-review process in Proceedings following the Conference.
