Join us at the 2021 IACAT conference!
We are delighted to announce that the 8th IACAT conference will be hosted by the Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany. With more than 45,000 students and a strong research record, the Goethe University is one of the major German universities. Several research groups at the university and associated research institutes are devoted to research on educational measurement and psychometrics. The conference will take place on the new Westend Campus of Goethe University, which is characterized by its central yet quiet location adjacent to a city park.
In addition to keynotes given by several of the most distinguished researchers in the field, there will be a wealth of individual oral presentations, symposia, and innovative interactive sessions on cutting-edge CAT research and applications. The conference dinner will be held at the impressive Eberbach Monastery, the location where the movie “The Name of the Rose” and the trailer for the fifth season of “Game of Thrones” were shot. A number of awards and student grants will be available.

The Campus Westend is located northwest from the city centre of Frankfurt, within about 25 minutes walking distance from the city centre.
