Call for Papers for the
WEBDATANET CONFERENCE 2015
26 – 28 May 2015, Salamanca, Spain
The WEBDATANET conference aims to bring together researchers and experts throughout the world to exchange research on topics related to web-based data collection & analysis methods.
WEBDATANET network was established in 2011 to build a multidisciplinary network of web-based data collection & analysis experts - (web) survey methodologists, psychologists, sociologists, linguists, economists, Internet scientists, media researchers and public opinion researchers, statisticians - to accumulate and synthesize knowledge of methodological problems and their potential solutions that must be addressed to provide web-based data with the scientific validity that traditional research methods already enjoy. The Conference will be organized in paper presentations, poster presentations, roundtable sessions and keynotes.
Deadline for posters or paper abstracts submissions is January 15, 2015.
¡¡ Call for Papers Closed !!
Notifications will go out by February 15, 2015.
All attendees are requested to register. The registration form will be online from February 20th, 2015. No fee is charged but travel and subsistence are in principle at your own costs.
I. PAPERS SESSIONS
We are looking for interesting and innovative proposals by researchers and experts throughout the world who are interested in topics which are directly linked to the main research themes of the WEBDATANET network.
The following list of sessions has been approved by the Scientific Committee to participate in the Call for Papers:
• THEME 1: Quality issues of web surveys
• THEME 2: Innovations in web based data collection
• THEME 3: Guides, codes, standards, implementation and dissemination of web-based data
II. CALL FOR POSTERS
The Call for Posters will provide an opportunity for presenting late breaking results, on-going research projects and speculative or innovative work in progress. Posters are intended to provide authors and participants with the ability to connect with each other and to engage in the discussions about their work. We invite submissions relevant to the topics of research provided in the themes described above.
In a Rountable Session you will debate and discuss issues relating to your practice area with a small group of colleagues. The roundtable sessions include 20 minutes of presentation, followed by 40 minutes of discussion and feedback. Presenters should prepare targeted questions to pose to others at the table in order to learn from and with those attending.
These formats are among the most flexible offered at the conference and may look different from the standard session. When sharing ideas and interacting with others, the understanding of the topics by part of the presenters is greater than if you were on your own. For this reason the Scientific Committee has organized the following three roundtable sessions:
