The 4th German Online Research 2001 conference is organized jointly by
the German Society for Online Research (DGOF e.V.), and the University
of Goettingen's Georg-Elias-Mueller Institute for Psychology. The
conference will be held in Goettingen.

Presentation of empirical investigations which examine the Internet as
both an instrument for, and an object of, scientific investigation,
will be the central focus of the conference. Additionally, DGOF will
hold its annual assembly and regional chapters meeting during GOR 01.

Following in the tradition of previous GORs, it is our goal to document
the progress of research in Online Research and Internet Science and to
facilitate dialogue between theoretical and applied perspectives.

Conference central topics include:

- Basic Research @ Internet
- Learning and Teaching @ Internet
- Market Research @ Internet
- e-Commerce @ Internet
- Computer-Mediated Communication In Organizations

Presentations and posters will be organized around these central
topics. Background information on the list of topics can be found at:

other topical foci for presentations and posters are possible (e.g.
Brands @ Internet or Web radio and Web TV).
