Dear Friends,

Data Recognition Corporation and JAM Press are pleased to announce that IOMW 2008 will be held in New York City at New York University on March 22 and 23, 2008, just prior to the AERA 2008 annual meeting. The meeting will be held in the Helen and Martin Kimmel Center for University Life located at 60 Washington Square South in New York City.   This location is a short bus, cab, or train ride from the AERA conference hotels.

This is the fourteenth meeting of IOMW, a series of biannual meetings that originated in 1981. The first IOMW was organized by Ben Wright and held at the University of Chicago. Paper and symposium applications will be accepted beginning in September 2007. IOMW 2008 will feature 16 presentation sessions with approximately 80 presentations. The final date for paper and symposium submissions is January 18, 2008. The final program will be announced on February 1, 2008.

Information on the paper and symposium submission process can be found at www.jampress.org.  Scroll down the JAM home page until you arrive at IOMW 2008 (near the bottom) and click on that link.  This will take you to the IOMW 2008 page.  Once on this page, please click on the appropriate links to download a printable pdf form for paper or symposium submission.   The two-day program will allow for a total of 80 presentations. There will be two plenary sessions and 6 concurrent sessions each day with a maximum of 5 presenters in each session. Each session will be 90 minutes in length, allowing each presenter approximately 14 minutes per presentation, with 20 minutes at the end for questions and answers.  Individual papers will be grouped into a session with papers sharing common themes. Symposia based on 4 to 5 commonly themed papers will be considered.

We all hope that this will be a special IOMW,  located very near Ben Wright's childhood home.  We are organizing a session to talk about Ben's New York experiences.  A conference dinner is also in the planning stage.  Please plan on joining us for this conference and we hope that you will submit a paper for presentation.
