Call for paticipation

15 May, 2017

The 7th International Meeting on Origami in Science, Mathematics and Education (7OSME) will take place in Oxford, United Kingdom between 5th and 7th September 2018. The meeting will be held in conjunction with the Summer Convention of the British Origami Society, who have just reached their 50-year anniversary this year.

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, which is demonstrated by the fact that over 300 participants attended in the 6OSME in Tokyo. The meeting proceedings have become the definitive guide for advanced origami research.

We are fully aware that the success of the meeting is dependent on your active participation. We welcome you if you are origami artists who create artistic objects, mathematicians who model origami or use origami to solve other mathematics problems, scientists who explore folding or biological objects, engineers who use origami to tackle problems in the virtual and real worlds, and educators who use origami to inspire younger generations.

At the moment, we are actively working on various issues related to the meeting, and details will be announced on this website as soon as all the logistics have been completed. Please pre-register so that we shall keep you informed about the meeting.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Oxford.
