The 7th International Meeting on Origami in Science, Mathematics and Education (7OSME) will take place at Oxford University, UK, between 5th and 7th September 2018.  The meeting will be held prior to with the autumn Convention of the British Origami Society.

The OSME meeting is one of the most important gatherings of the origami community around the world. Previous meetings, held approximately every four years, have been highly successful; the community has grown exponentially, (over 300 participants attended in the 6OSME in Tokyo). The meeting proceedings have become the definitive guide for advanced origami research.

There are various strands to the meeting, including a stream dedicated to Origami in Education.  This will feature presentations from both researchers and teachers on the work that they have done around the world.

At the heart of the conference is the presentation of and publication of research papers.  The deadline for submission of papers is the 15th March 2018.  However, in advance of this we are inviting authors to submit abstracts, (shorter summaries of papers).  The call for abstract submission for papers went out on September 1st and the 7OSME website is now open to receive submissions.

Details of the submission process, via a conference management system known as Easychair, can be found on our website.  Both abstracts and full papers should be submitted through Easychair.  If you do not have an account with Easychair, use the link provided above to create an account.

Full details can be found here;

Before 1st December 2017, only abstracts are required.   These submissions will be reviewed by the technical committee and a decision will be made on the suitability of the proposal to be developed into a full paper for 7OSME.  This decision will be made no later than 6th February 2018.

Abstracts are invited in a standard format comprising a 2-page of A4 / letter PDF format. Two templates are provided on the website, one in MS Word and the other in LaTeX. You may include figures and tables in your submission.

We aim to make the proceedings of 7OSME available at the meeting, which will then be published as a book entitled “Origami7”. As a result, the gap between notification of acceptance of abstracts and the deadline for full paper submission is quite close.  We would encourage potential participants to start preparing the full paper now.
