GOR 11: Brief portrait
The focus of the General Online Research (GOR) is the
discussion of basic research, innovative developments,
and practical experiences in the field of online research. Online
research covers a) all methods, instruments and
theories that are dealing with the collection of data via online
networks and b) effects of online applications
and technologies on all levels of society. That involves mobile
communication as well. The annual GOR
conference involves research mainly within the social and behavioral
sciences. GOR 11 supports the exchange
of knowledge not only in an interdisciplinary way, but also between
researchers and practitioners as well as
between universities and companies.
