Experienced Attendee Program - Throughout the Conference

Look out for people wearing an Experienced Attendee ribbon:


These individuals have been to several IMPS conferences and invite you to approach them with questions you have about the conference. (For questions very specific to IMPS 2015, such as directions to rooms, please ask Conference Staff at the registration desk or volunteers wearing orange baseball caps.) You are also encouraged to have a conversation with Experienced Attendees about your research and theirs, careers, and membership in the Psychometric Society.
