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.

We are looking for interesting and innovative session 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 (for more details see: http://webdatanet.cbs.dk/index.php/test/scientific-coordination):
