I just got back from another workshop on IRT and CAT, this one at the Universita G. d’Annunzio, Chieti, Italy.  Many thanks to Aristide Saggino and Roberta Romanelli for doing such a great job organizing this workshop!  It was truly an international affair, with participants from the US, Canada, UK, Belgium, Portugal, Switzerland, Italy, Malta, Croatia, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Iran, China, Brunei, and Korea.  Plus, besides getting to experience the Abruzzo region, many of us were lucky enough to spend a day or two visiting Rome.


Several participants inquired about future workshops, and the possibility of organizing one for their home country.  ASC currently has two future workshops tentatively planned: Tokyo (Sept 4-5, 2010) and Brasilia (June 2011).
