We are pleased to announce that the 6th IACAT conference with the theme “Advancing assessment through CAT” will be held in Niigata, Japan on 21-28 August, 2017. As in previous IACAT conferences, it will feature world-class keynote and invited speakers, pre-conference workshops, refereed presentations, symposia and sessions on a wide range of topics.

The proposals submitted will be reviewed blindly and continuously. Decisions will be communicated within 2 - 3 weeks after the proposal submission.
