Current Innovations in Probability-based Household Internet Panel Research
Washington DC
Thursday, February 21, 2019

As online panels are rapidly becoming a familiar tool for research, the need to ensure high-quality, representative data collection and analysis is also increasingly clear.  The first “Current Innovations in Probability-based Household Internet Panel Research (CIPHER)” conference will be organized by the Center for Economic and Social Research (CESR) of the University of Southern California and hosted by the Global Financial Literacy Excellence Center (GFLEC) at the George Washington University on the 21st of February, 2019.

CIPHER 2019 will focus on new approaches to the design and use of probability-based Internet and mixed-mode panels for research and policy, and the potential and challenges ahead.  We are pleased to invite abstract submissions for oral presentation and discussion at CIPHER 2019 in Washington DC. We encourage proposals from researchers with a variety of backgrounds (including academic research, official statistics, private/nonprofit research, and government social research)  related to the topics below, as well as other topics that address the conference’s broader theme:
- Survey methodology and practice
- Data management and linkages
- Developments in analysis techniques
- Substantive applications of research
- Combination of data collected with wearable devices with self-reports
- Naturally occurring data
- Experiments
