We know you can’t travel to every conference, so DC-AAPOR and WSS are teaming up once again to bring you a sample of exemplary presentations (both talks and posters) taking place at this year’s national and international conferences. At the 2018 Summer Conference Preview/Review, you will get the opportunity to share your work, hear what others are doing, and connect with colleagues.

A conference program will be released before the conference on both the WSS and DC-AAPOR websites. Presentations will be featured from some of the following conferences:

  • American Association for Public Opinion Research Conference
  • Joint Statistical Meetings
  • World Association for Public Opinion Research
  • International Field Directors and Technologies Conference
  • International Total Survey Error Workshop
  • Business Data Collection Workshop
  • Methodology of Longitudinal Surveys International Conference
  • Other survey methodology conferences

After the conference, we will have a happy hour at Union Pub. 201 Massachusetts Ave, NE (entrance is on D street). Conference registration includes food and drink at the happy hour.
