will be held in Granada (Spain) from 2 to 5 September of 1998.

The previous explanation DOES NOT imply that Ethnomathematics is ONLY an
instrument to improve mathematical education. Indeed, the role of Ethnomathemtics is much more than improvement of way of teaching. During the The Latin-American Seminar of Phylosophy and History of Ideas, in his note entitled ETHNOMATHEMATICS AS REVISIONISM? , D'Ambrosio, cited that *Ethnomathematics has a role in helping us to clarify the nature of
Mathematical knowledge and of knowledge in general.*

Since then, especially during in the recent years, many educators gave their attention to the subject and a lot of valuble work was done. In the Net, there are various online lists of publications relating to the ethnomathematics as well as many other sites relating to the ethnomathematics in general.

BiFoEtMa: *Bibliography Finder For
EthnoMathematics* is an online references finder which is based a simple
database that is compiled using different data sources. Some of these data
came to me through e-mail files, and to avoid retyping them, I simply added to
the database. So there is no uniformal structure of the results of BiFoEtMa,
and probably, there can be some errors (type-writing errors). Morever, the
list of publications is not yet as complete as possibile, so if you use it and
find
some missing items or errors, do not hesitate forward to me. I appreciate
your suggessions as well as your contributions.

The aim of this page and the indexed database of references is to provide a source of information about the existing ethnomathematics publications. This can be of help especially for the young researchers and the students who are approaching for the first time research in ethnomathematics and relating topics (both mathematical and non mathematical topics).

### Bibliography
