Hosted by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the NIH Office
of Behavioral Social Science Research (OBSSR), and the University of
Illinois at Chicago, ICOM's theme this year is "Behavioral Health
Measurement: From Theory to Application." We will review the science
behind the measurement of important constructs in substance use and
behavioral health research, while also exploring opportunities to improve
the field with the new tools available in psychometrics.
In addition to the main conference, ICOM will be hosting two pre-session
workshops: Introduction to IRT/Rasch Measurement Using Winsteps on
September 9th and 10th, and the Introduction to PROMIS, Item Response
