Call for Papers: GOR Best Practice Award 2022 Competition

The German Society for Online Research (DGOF) has been awarding the GOR Best Practice Award since 2008. DGOF has been presenting the GOR Best Practice Award at its annual General Online Research Conference (GOR) since 2008.

At the upcoming GOR 22, which will take place from 16 – 18 March 2022 at HTW Berlin, contributions that deal with the concrete use of online research methods in business practice will again be awarded. Projects will be presented in which online market research methods have been successfully used in companies. Especially new and innovative methods, such as virtual reality, internet-of-things, measurement of biometric data and research with wearables, are welcome. The best study will be awarded with the GOR Best Practice Award 2022.

The winners will be chosen by the GOR Best Practice jury and the audience. The audience will vote online directly after the Best Practice session at the conference.

GOR 22 offers a good opportunity to present your own ideas and concepts and to discuss them with an international audience of online researchers from academia and practice. Submissions for the GOR Best Practice Award 2022 are open until 12 December 2021.
