Call For Paper

Abstract Submission

We invite you to share your works in the area of psychometrics and measurement across the human and social sciences, including psychology, education, health, and related fields with colleagues around the globe. Works related to Rasch Model and its application as well as works based on larger spectrum of psychometrics theory and application are greatly appreciated. Abstract may be submitted for oral presentation, symposium, or poster sessions.

Oral Presentation

The oral presentation is an individual presentation of an original work that has not been published elsewhere. The first authors will present abbreviated versions of their work. We will be grouping 3 – 5 individual presentations into a single 75 minutes chaired session. Typically, the chair will have 5 minutes to introduce the session followed by 12 minutes per presentation, discussant point of view, and audience questions and answers. The chair may adjust the time according to the number of presentations scheduled for the session. Ten minutes will be allocated for a discussant (optional) to address the session.


Symposium is a session focusing on a common issue. It includes a convener, three to four presenters, and a discussant. Abstract of a symposium should be submitted by the convener accompanied the abstract of the individual presentations. Typically, convener will chair the session and open the session by providing the perspective of the symposium. The convener will close the session by integrating all the presentations in to a meaningful whole.

Poster Session

The author will have the opportunity to display their work and take up an individual discussion throughout a half day. Space for poster session will be provided by the conference organizer.

Topics of the symposium will include but not limited to:

  1. Rasch Model, theory and application
  2. Item Response Theory
  3. Validity Studies
