Measurement has long been an important and prominent concept in the sciences, engineering, and natural philosophy, and is often considered a privileged method for acquiring information about the world. Over the years, the tradition of Rasch measurement has been central to the enactment of objective measurement, particularly in the human sciences. The IOMW seeks to foster discussion and scholarship on high-quality, rigorous measurement practices in any field.
We want papers that further these ideals in the field of measurement. To submit your proposal, fill out the online form on the Presentation Formats, Submitting Proposals page.

The IOMW is interested in well-written papers and thought-provoking presentations relevant to the theory and practice of objective measurement. Tentatively, we expect that the program will be organized in four sessions centered around the following themes:
Presentations will be organized in sessions containing a mix of presentation types:
We were very pleased to publish a number of 2014 papers in Psychological Test and Assessment Modeling (PTAM) and Pensamiento Educativo, the Journal of Latin-American Educational Research (PEL). We are also considering alternatives such as the Online Educational Research Journal. Our Research and Dissemination Committee will convene in Spring to explore all venues for indexed publication. We invite authors of 2016 papers to consider working with us to bring their work to a wider audience in special guest edited peer-reviewed journals.
In addition, IOMW will continue to post abstracts, papers, and powerpoint presentations on its website so the public will have access to your work for this conference. Check out the 2014 Archive to read the material that was posted from the last IOMW.
Graduate Student Awards
IOMW and its sponsors are keenly interested in supporting the graduate students in our community. Awards are available as described on the Graduate Student Awards page. An Awards and Recognition Committee will select and distribute these funds to 2016 awardees at the conference.
The IOMW organizing committee is actively seeking individual and corporate sponsorship of the conference and the graduate student awards program. Sponsors will be prominently recognized.
