    Submitting a proposal is "free", but conference registration is $80 for lead speakers and $120 for secondary speakers.   To submit a proposal, click on the "REGISTER" button below left. 

    We invite proposals for 75-minute sessions at all levels, from Pre-Kindergarten to Post-Secondary.  Proposals should explore the theme "Teaching Mathematics in a Changing World" where possible.  Multidisciplinary presentations are welcome.

    All presenter rooms have a teacher station with a computer, monitor, projector, DVD player, audio, and internet access.  In addition, there are 5 computer labs available, so sessions that engage participants in computer-based activities are encouraged. We ask that the description of the session highlight the mathematics content to be presented. Please complete all required fields in order for your proposal to be reviewed.

    Deadline for proposals is December 11, 2015.  If your proposal is accepted, you will need to complete the conference registration form by January 15 in order to be put into the program as a conference speaker. Only one discount registration allowed per session, and all session speakers MUST register under Conference Registration by January 15 to be included in the program.

     Teaching Mathematics in a Changing World. 

    The 37th Annual Conference will be held at the Stafford Campus of the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, VA,  March 4-5, 2016.    

    The University of Mary Washington is a new venue for us.  The Stafford Campus is accustomed to hosting professional conferences, and we'll have excellent access to technology.  Session rooms are classrooms equipped with projectors and Internet access.    UMW is located midway between the population centers in Richmond and northern Virginia and is easily accessed from I-95.  Parking and unloading will be extremely convenient:  no stairs and no elevators.  We expect to locate exhibitors near the registration area.

    The support of our exhibitors is crucial to the success of the conference.  We wish to thank you for the support you have offered in the past, and humbly request your help again this year.  The exhibitor fees we have charged the last few years remain unchanged.  Registration for exhibit space will be $400 per table.  The space includes one six-foot table (no skirt) with chair, and lunch on Friday.  There is no additional charge for access to an electrical outlet, but exhibitors will need to bring their own extension cords. We offer a discounted rate of $200 per table for non-profit organizations and companies with 4 or fewer total employees. 

    In order to "hold the line" for exhibitor fees, we need sponsors to help with this event.  What type of sponsorship fits your budget?  If you can donate conference bags for participants, your company's logo will appear on one side.  Please also consider providing t-shirts for volunteers, monetary donations towards meals, or an advertisement in the program.  All sponsorships will be gratefully acknowledged by including your company's logo in the conference program and with a sign at your exhibit booth.

    If you wish to present a session at the conference, you are invited to do so.  I do not handle speaker requests directly, but please feel free to complete the on-line speaker request at  You will need to sign up as a vendor and use the code VENDOR314 to register as a speaker as well as a vendor.

    If you are exhibiting at the conference, the requirement of being a member of VCTM is waived.  Information about nearby hotels where rooms have been blocked off for exhibitors and attendees can be found at     

    You may register online using a credit card simply by clicking on the register button on the left.  If you choose to register by mail, then you will find the registration form attached here.  Simply print it out, complete the form and mail it in as directed on the form.   We have a limited amount of exhibit space, and we do expect to sell out, so please get requests in early!

    As always, VCTM values your support of the mathematics community in Virginia.  If I can answer any questions or make your participation in the conference easier, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Your involvement in our conference will help make this our best one yet!  I look forward to working with you.
