There will be two submission types: individual paper presentations and symposia. Individual paper presentations will be 20 minutes long and will be grouped together with similar proposals from other presenters in a time slot (total duration 90 minutes). In a symposium, thematically related research conducted by different first authors is presented. Four to five proposals can be grouped together for presentation in a joint symposium (total duration 90 minutes). Including a discussant is recommended.  IACAT welcomes both methodological research as well as practical applications of CAT and AI in assessment. The proposals should be related to at least one strand of the conference theme.

The abstract submission for individual paper presentations and symposia will be open on December 2020. More information on the abstract submission and the registration procedure coming soon!

In addition, on the first conference day IACAT provides time slots for half-day workshops. If you plan to hold a workshop on CAT related topics, please write an email to, no later than 1 December 2020, including the following information:
