GOR 24: The 26th General Online Research Conference at the RFH in Cologne ends successfully

The General Online Research Conference (GOR 24). Around 240 participants attended the conference, which took place in spring from 21 March 2024 to 23 March 2024 for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic. Despite the short preparation phase (the last GOR took place in September 2023 at the University of Kassel), the organisers from the German Society for Online Research (DGOF) and the RFH Cologne were very satisfied with their joint event.

The presentation of the conference awards for special achievements in the field of online research attracts a great deal of attention at every GOR:

The GOR Poster Award 2024. This year, the award, which is endowed with 500 euros, goes to Matthias Roth (GESIS Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences) for his poster “Ask a Llama – Creating Variance in Synthetic Survey Data”. A total of nine posters competed against each other.

The GOR Thesis Award. Georg Ahnert (University of Mannheim) was honoured with this year’s prize for the best Master’s thesis for his project “Fair Sampling for Global Ranking Recovery”. In the competition for the best PhD thesis, Julian B. Axenfeld (DIW Berlin) beat off the competition with his work “Imputation of Missing Data from Split Questionnaire Designs in Social Surveys”. The GOR Thesis Award 2024 was once again sponsored by Tivian. The winners also received prize money of 500 euros each.

The Best Paper Award 2024 . The award, worth 500 euros, which honours outstanding scientific contributions to online research, went this year to the duo Tobias Felix Reiter and Ramona Schoedel for the paper “Never miss a beep: Using mobile sensing to investigate (non-)compliance in experience sampling studies”. The sponsor of the DGOF Best Paper Award 2024 was Bilendi & respondi.
