Both the AERA Annual Meeting and the Eleventh International Objective Measurement Workshops will meet next April in New Orleans. AERA runs April 1-5, and IOMW11 will be held the weekend after AERA, April 6-7.

We are exploring the possibility of holding IOMW11 in hotel meeting space instead of in local university classrooms, as has been the tradition to-date. This will require that we also institute a registration fee, which we will keep in the $50-$75 range.

IOMW11 presentation proposals will be due later this year, and will be submitted via a web site now being tested.

The meetings next April in New Orleans will prove exciting, given the opportunity to build on developments stemming from this autumn's meetings in Denmark, Malaysia, and Chicago. The program committee is already cultivating extensive Australian, European, and Asian participation, as well as strong involvement from North American researchers.

We'll also organize another dinner at Mulate's for Cajun music, dancing, and cuisine.

So while preparing your AERA abstracts, remember that you'll be able to attend two top measurement conferences in one week. Although no one should submit the same work for presentation at both meetings, it is perfectly acceptable to frame two presentations from different aspects of the same study.

And IOMW11 presentations will be considered for publication in the Objective Measurement book series edited by Mark Wilson, George Engelhard, Jr., and Karen Draney.

See you in N'Awlins next April!
