Join SCILA’s workshop on the design of online experiments

Laboratory for Social and Cognitive Informatics is organizing a workshop on the methodology of web-based experiments on June 22. It will be hosted by the Web Science Conference 2021.

The workshop “Designing Web-based Experiments: Sampling, Recruitment, and Data Collection in Social Media and other Digital Environment” will be held online. It is supposed to bring together researchers from various fields with an expertise in online experimental designs. Participants will be able to share their experience and discuss different methodological aspects of this approach such as sample construction, recruitment of participants, online experiment interface development, etc. Researchers from SCILA will present our recent experimental study on the perception of fake news.

We invite scholars to present their projects at the workshop. To participate as a panelist, please, send us an extended abstract of your study (based on an online experiment as a primary method) to scila.websci21@gmail.com. Full papers are not required. The submission deadline is April 23. More information about the workshop you can find on the website.

We also welcome scholars at any stage of their career who are interested in the online experiments to participate without presentation. For this, you need to register through the conference website.

WebSci’21 is organized by the University of Southampton. This year, it will be held online on June 21–25. The main topic of the event is “Globalisation, Inclusion and the Web in the Context of COVID”.
