Hi Professor,

Looks good. The website advertising this event is missing information on a "call for papers" and the actual fees of the conference. I take it that this information will be forth coming.

Dear Rasch colleagues,
Go on; step outside the comfort zone of the usual conferences. Come to the country where Rasch is the future, not the past:


I'm very delighted to announce that the PROMS Board has decided the PROMS2014 symposium will be held in Guangzhou, China from August 4-6 2014 with pre-conference workshops scheduled for August 2-3 2014 and post-conference self-arranged events scheduled for August 7, 2014.

        Over the past years, PROMS has been successfully hosted in many Pacific Rim countries and regions for the purpose of promoting the research and contributing to the development of the Rasch Model. Following the inaugural PROMS symposium in 2012, held in Jiaxing, Zhejiang Province, China Mainland and the PROMS2013 symposium, Kaohsiung, Taiwan, we are now opening our arms to welcome all PROMS counterparts to Guangzhou, China.

        The ideas and concepts regarding the Rasch Model were first introduced into China in 1980s by Professor Gui Shichun. Later, it was Professor Gui who first utilized the Rasch Model in the form of the ten-year long (1990-1999) Equating Project for Matriculation English Test (MET). The results of Professor Gui’s MET received praise and adulation in China, but the following years did not witness significant Rasch-based application and research. With this in mind, we can see the PROMS2014 symposium meets the important need of providing an excellent introduction to the Rasch model and its application.
