> Now that AERA/NCME and IOMW are past, I noticed  that AERA is scheduled 
to be in Chicago next April 16 to 20, 2015, for their  annual meeting. Given 
this location and the historic role that Chicago has  played in the 
development of outcome measurement, it might be a good  opportunity to organize a 
health outcomes conference in Chicago around that  time in spring 2015. 
Chicago is a very busy convention city and hotel rates  for the three days prior 
to AERA are sky high due to the presence of the  Health Information and 
Management Systems Society meeting just before AERA.  Fortunately, right after 
AERA, there is less pressure on hotel costs, so the  dates of April 21 and 22, 
2015 look like the best opportunity to organize a  conference.
> Some of you may remember the three International  Outcome Measurement 
Conferences (IOMC) that we held in Chicago back in the  90's (1996, 1998, and 
2000). It would be a nice to revive that tradition  again. JAM is willing to 
organize the conference. We have contacted a Michigan  Ave. hotel with space 
to accommodate a meeting of about 50 people and would  like to reserve that 
space, if there is sufficient interest. It is possible to  expand into a 
second room if there is sufficient interest.  The cost of  the meeting space 
would be modest, about $40 per person for the two days,  without food.
> I would like to think of this as a "state of the  art" conference with 
the goal of publishing two issues of JAM from the  presentations at 
conference. Presenters would have to agree to provide  publication-ready copy at the 
time of the meeting, so begin peer review and  publish the issues in late 
2015. Recall that JAM is indexed in PUB MED and  Index Medicus, so the 
presentations/articles would be widely available. I  think it would be very fitting 
to reconvene IOMC in Chicago in recognition of  the ground breaking work 
that began with Ben in Chicago and has grown  world-wide since the 1980's.
