Invitation from Co-chairs
We enthusiastically welcome everyone to LTRC 2013 in Seoul, Korea. This is the first year for the conference to be held in Korea, and we are excited about the program we are putting together. The theme of Language Assessment, Diagnosis, and Accountability is timely, as it highlights some of the most important issues being explored in language testing today.
This year we will offer a number of workshops on current issues including writing assessment and cognitive diagnosis modeling. The main events of the conference will include insightful talks and engaging symposia on diagnostic testing as well as other current issues, given by leading figures from the field of language assessment.
We have also planned an opening reception, formal banquet, and other scheduled events to introduce Korean culture, including opportunities to tour some national landmarks. We hope LTRC 2013 will be a memorable and enjoyable event for everyone who attends.
