Europe ATP prepares for its ninth annual Gaining Advantage Through Assessment Conference

This year's theme: Advancing Human Capital with Assessments

27 - 29 September 2017 - Noorwijk, The Netherlands -- 30 miles outside of Amsterdam!

Globalisation, the digital age, and cognitive computing are reshaping and redefining the skills needed to succeed. Testing plays a fundamental role in identifying knowledge gaps and answering critical questions, but imagine how much more we could learn if we challenged the traditional, well-known, and accepted notions about testing.

This year's E-ATP conference will challenge these notions, and will highlight key innovations and advances in assessment design, development, and delivery that will lead to future advancements in the testing industry. Conference topics will include: Emerging Technologies such as Gamificiation, Wearables, and Neuro -Assessments; Test Security and Integrity; Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning and Cognitive Computing; Badging and the Digitication of Credentials; Micro-credentials and Data Privacy.

This year's venue is The Grand Hotel Huis ter Duin, a beachside resort located just 30 miles outside of Amsterdam.  The Call For Presentations is Live until April 7. Registration is open and Sponsorships are available.

E-ATP Chair Cicek Svensson of Comms Multilingual urged delegates to register early to receive the best rate. "There are two cut-off dates for Early Bird rates - one in mid-June and other that goes until the end of August -- so attendees should register early to get the very best rate," Cicek noted.  [ATP members can go to the Member Benefits link on their member profile page at and receive the member discount code.]
