COVID-19 has led to dramatic changes in many facets and forced severe limitations on education activities in communities all across the world. As countries in the region grapple with this COVID-19 virus, the task at hand of governments is to decide an educational policy whilst conducting educational activities. Because of this outbreak, the Indonesian’s government made an online learning policy instead of real class to avoid virus spreading. Passing almost two years in pandemic condition brings us hope for a new normal and adapts post-pandemic mathematics teaching and learning in Indonesia. Furthermore, we ensure that academicians and researchers in mathematics and mathematics education are still enthusiastic to conduct research during this outbreak and willing to share and discuss their findings with others.

On behalf of the ICITMME Committee, UIN Sunan Kalijaga Yogyakarta, we warmly invite you to participate in the International Conference of Innovation and Technology in Mathematics and Mathematics Education (1st ICITMME) held on August 13th, 2021. In this first-year conference, ICITMME raised the theme “Opportunities and Challenges of Research in Mathematics and Mathematics Education during Pandemic and post-pandemic”. This theme is considered to represent nowadays educational conditions during the pandemic and post-pandemic to find a solution and discuss its problems.

Due to this COVID-19 outbreak, ICITMME 2021 will be a fully virtual conference since participants may come from different places or countries. The conference is a scientific forum for participants to share and discuss research findings or ideas in mathematics and mathematics education scope and build networks for further collaborations.
