Conference Concludes

As an attendee at the NCTM 2023 Research Conference, you’ll examine the latest research in the profession in a variety of ways to stimulate discussion, build on collective knowledge, and support each other as we work to elevate mathematics pedagogy and practice.

Session formats include: 

New for 2023! Research in Progress Report

This new format combines developing research from 2-3 reports and allows you to examine and discuss the ongoing work, specific challenges, and resulting strategies. 

Research Symposiums

These in-depth sessions take a deeper on:

  • Several presentations focusing on the same problem from complementary or contrasting perspectives or research paradigms.
  • Several presentations from a connected set of studies arising from a single program of research.
  • One substantive presentation on a major program of research or a particular view of a research issue.
Interactive Sessions

As their title implies, these sessions are designed to encourage interaction around an issue or topic, including:

  • Challenges and opportunities at the intersection of research and practice.
  • How the research community grapples with an aspect of research, education, or mathematics.
  • Emerging research areas that could foster new research collaborations.
  • Understanding, analyzing, and applying a specific methodology or technique
Research Report

This traditional session examines completed research from two or three Research Reports, organized into a single session. The reports are designed to frame and share the findings from completed research studies.


The poster sessions use the visual display of materials to help highlight a research study and generate discussion with the poster author, encouraging the exchange of ideas.
