Seventh International Objective Measurement Workshop

IOMW7 meets on April 10-11, 1993, Emory University (206 White Hall), just before AERA, April 12-16, in Atlanta. Measurement theorists and practitioners from the United States, Australia, the Netherlands, Singapore, South Africa, and Spain will attend.

Most convenient lodging is Emory Inn (404-712-6700, 800-933-6679) with shuttle bus to Emory University. IOMW7 group rate is $62. per room (single, double or triple - share and save!). The AERA conference hotels (Educational Researcher, Nov. 1992) are one-hour by public transport (MARTA) or 30 minutes by taxi from Emory. There are shuttle vans from Atlanta airport to Emory Inn or downtown.

Saturday Night Dinner: We plan to go to a nearby restaurant. If you want to join our party, let us know immediately.

Objective Measurement: Theory into Practice III. Editors, George Engelhard and Mark Wilson, ask that IOMW7 papers intended for publication in this volume be submitted before or at IOMW7.
