It’s Germany’s most important conference in the field of online research and we are pleased to announce that the General Online Research will take place again this year. Last year, the GOR celebrated its premiere as a digital conference and DGOF (the organizers) championed any technical challenges to present all the usual exciting presentation to a noticeably more international audience. Due to the success of the first ever GOR and the pandemic-related uncertainty hanging in the air, DGOF decided to organise a virtual GOR again this year. As usual, the conference programme is divided into four different tracks: Survey Methods, Data Science, Politics/Public Opinion/Communication and Digital Methods in Applied Research.
We will have the pleasure of sponsoring such an insightful and important event. Moreover, we will also be present as contributor; as some of our research has been selected by the conference committee.
Our first presentation is on Thursday 9th September at 4:20pm. We will present our findings to “Tracking and driving behaviour with survey and metered data: The influence of incentives on the uptake of a COVID-19 contact tracing app“; a research conducted together with Simon Munzert, Assistant Professor of Data Science and Public at Hertie School.
Besides Corona, fake news also remains a hot topic, not only during election campaigns. But which news is fake? At the same time on Thursday 9th September, we will show you a data-based approach on “Separating the wheat from the chaff: a combination of passive and declarative data to identify unreliable news media“.
Speaking of election campaigns: What is the connection between voting intention and the consumption of online news? “Explaining voting intention through online news consumption” will provide some answers on Friday, 10.9. at 12am.
We are looking forward to this year’s GOR! To an exciting conference, to new impulses and above all to the exchange with colleagues in the industry – even if it is on a screen!
