Thanks a lot for all your (and your teams) effort for organizing this conference! I think it was very well organized. Well done.
In case anybody is interested - Just some photos that I have taken while I am here. Not at the conference, just around the city. http://www.flickr.com/photos/yorkntu/sets/72157620360742597/
I've noticed the following blog posts for the conference, if you have written a blog post or come across any, please add detail here: Diederick de Vries: http://www.diederickdevries.net/blog/?tag=essconf09 Gillian at NGS: http://nationalgridservice.blogspot.com/2009/06/e-social-science-in-germany.html#links
as we move towards the final session, which networking tools have proved most popular and which most effective? At a quick scan, grapevine seems to be in the lead. Any observations on this?
Thanks Paul, for chairing this morning's session where our presentation took place and your helpful comments.
Thanks, Farzana for inviting me to the eSS conference social network on crowdvine. Great tool...
Hi Katy, I've just god a comment from Meik about the good conference organization and I want to pass this on to you and Angelika. Well done!
Hi Wolfgang, thank you, and many thanks for helping out! Also very well done with all your organisation with the conference, I enjoyed everything very much - especially the deserts yesterday at Rheinterassen.. ;-)
good presentation that you gave - even with the problem of changing the slides.
For those interested in a demonstration of our toolkit: I have cancelled the scheduled lunch demo because no one will show up anyway as everyone will be enjoying their nice three-course lunch.
If you want, I am exited to demonstrate the tools to you personally in one of the other breaks. Simply find me, and I'll fold open my laptop...
At the Ethics and Law workshop on Wednesday there was some interest expressed in a survey management tool that we (Kristan Hopkins Burke and I, we are both at this conference and on this network) are developing at Nottingham Trent University. The programming is not yet completed, but the idea is to take care of some ethical issues for academic researchers such as a forced informed consent stage and a mechanism for respondents to withdraw their da...

'the kinds of survey research you are interested in..' - it's mostly large scale sample surveys, e.g. government survyes, & especially for comparative research over time and between countries..
By all accounts, including my own, Workshop 6 (Imagining, Identifying, and Investigating e-Research) was a fantastic success, that quality being measured by the level of scholarly discourse. I enjoyed the day immensely, particularly the diversity of imaginings of what e-research is and might be. As facilitator of the event, my thanks to all that contributed. For those that did not have opportunity to attend, all of the background materials for th... [read more]
Many of the comments on Meik Poschen's presentation were about the survey method used to gather evidence about UK university researchers' use of Web 2.0 services. What attracted attention especially was the low response rate (10%) achieved by an email solicitation to complete a web-based questionnaire. This is the usual level of response rate to such surveys. Is there a better way of collecting evidence for this study?
Apologies if this is wrong "place" for doing so, but I've posted the slides for the presentation I held this morning to my blog and wanted to share the link with the other participants (and anyone else interested, of course): http://blog.ynada.com/78 Thank you once more to Julian and Esther for organizing the workshop!
Hi, hope you are enjoying the conference!
You should have received a USB with conference papers on when you registered. Unfortunately they are not compatible with Macs. So we have made the content available at: http://www.ncess.ac.uk/usb. So that you don't have to download one paper at a time, you can download the entire usb content here: http://www.ncess.ac.uk/resources/usb.zip.
i'd be keen to hear more about the kinds of survey research you are interested in. Best wishes, Kristan
It is good to be here in Cologne. Best wishes,
because nobody is using crowdvine at present, nor Twitter.
Post where you have booked/plan to book your accomodation here . .
http://www.maternushaus.de/ Hello all, Just a comment to let you know that the Conference Venue appears as a church on most maps as it's owned by the catholic church. June.
The conference folders have arrived, and they're the popular fold-over kind like we had last year. There's still a chance for other parties to sponsor an insert (if you're quick), drop Katy Middlebrough a line if you haven't done so already.
Go Tim - oh sorry, Kenny.
Frank, is that you or Elvis?
Do you use a Blog, Twitter or maybe Flickr? When referring to the 5th International Conference in e-Social Science please add the following tag: #essconf09 Farzana
