Dear All, 

My colleagues and I are in the process of looking at Rasch measurement
conferences to attend, particularly those with an education/medical
education component.

We need to prepare our budget now, so I was wondering if an estimate of
registration costs would be available for the IOMW 2012?

Kind regards

Imogene Rothnie

Peter: This, too, is to say thanks for taking this up.  Richard Smith
and Mark Wilson, among others, have taken the initiative at many of
these meetings, but I think you are right that no one owns them and that
they have a tradition of being alongside, generally just before AERA. 


I will do what I can to attend, and have also put it in my diary.  I am
sure Richard and Mark will be happy to give advice, as well as Derek
Briggs who organised the last one in Bouler and whose team did a great


All the best with it. I have added the Matilda Bay Site in this reply,
and it might be helpful to keep it on your list.

Thanks to you (and Brian) for taking the initiative to make IOMW 2012
happen. I have put April 11-12, 2012 on my calendar and look forward to
attending. A trip to Vancouver sounds exciting. Let me know if there is
any way I can help.

AERA. As the last IOMW took place in Boulder Colorado in 2010 the next
expected IOMW would be in Vancouver in 2012. I have been making inquires
of individuals in the Rasch community since Boulder in 2010; I have been
unable to locate any group that claims the organization of IOMW or IOMW
itself as their own. Although I was unable to attend the Rasch SIG
meeting AERA 2011, I understand the matter was raised but there was no
discussion that resolved anything. I see no reference to IOMW on any of
the Rasch related websites. The www.Rasch.org site does not list it as
occurring prior to AERA.
>        As Vancouver BC is in my region (I am north of Vancouver), the
organization of this conference seems a natural to me. Brian Bontempo
(lives south of Vancouver) and I had discussed this at the Rasch
conference in Denmark (Probabilistic models for measurement in
education, psychology, social science and health, FUHU Conference
Center) in June 2010. We had agreed that time that we would jointly
organize this conference IOMW 2012 in Vancouver. At that time Brian
extended a verbal invite to all present during the closing remarks of
the conference. However Brian and I have not discussed the conference
since that time. I will ask Brian to respond.
>        While this seems to be an odd way to go about this, as there
appears to be no visible group claiming responsibility for IOMW, and no
discussion of the conference, I will initiate the planning of IOMW 2012
in Vancouver BC for the dates of April 11-12, 2012. I will begin making
inquires about location based on a conference similar to IOMW 2010 i.e.,
room size, availability etc. I know that IOMW is low budget so that I
will take that into consideration. I am pursuing several options for
some funding assistance. The physical location only one of many aspects
of a conference and perhaps a very minor one. The organization of
themes, types of presentations, the call for submissions, the review and
selection of submissions, and scheduling of sessions are some of the
many tasks that lay ahead.
>        This conference will require the expertise and assistance of
many individuals more experienced than me. If you have been involved
with IOMW before and wish to offer your expertise please let me know via
return email. If you are new to this and wish to work on the conference
also please let me know. If by chance you are part of a group that feels
an "ownership" of IOMW and that you have been left out of the decision
making, I would be very interested in hearing your concerns. As IOMW is
not strictly Education (i.e. AERA, Rasch SIG) please forward this email
to other groups that have traditionally been involved.
