Abstract Submissions are Open for the 2021 AAPOR Annual Conference!

by Kristen Olson, AAPOR Conference Chair
It’s fall! Leaves are turning from green to red, orange, yellow and brown; pumpkin spice-flavored drinks and food are everywhere; and AAPOR is now accepting abstracts for the 2021 AAPOR Annual Conference. We are seeking abstracts for a variety of submission types—our traditional papers, methodological briefs, posters, and panels—and we have introduced two new session types: professional development and career advice sessions and round tables. Abstract submissions are open through Friday, November 13, 2020, at 11:59 PM.

This year’s AAPOR conference is themed “Data Collection, Measurement, and Public Opinion During a Pandemic.” As the world has been facing challenges to public health and safety due to the growing pandemic, many survey organizations, federal statistical agencies, and public opinion researchers have had to immediately pivot to a “new normal” of data collection. Public opinion and individual behaviors about the pandemic and toward leaders have changed at lightning speeds. To explore these and other changes, the 2021 AAPOR Conference will have a mini-conference dedicated to papers related to this theme. Learn more about the theme and mini-conference.
As always, AAPOR is accepting papers on a wide range of other topics not related to the theme of the conference. This year’s conference tracks include Attitudes and Opinions; Elections, Polling, and Politics; Media, News and Information Sources; Questionnaire Design and Interviewing; Data Collection Methods, Modes, Field Operations, and Costs; Response Rates and Nonresponse Error; Probability and Nonprobability Samples, Frames, and Coverage Errors; Statistical Techniques and Estimation; Data Science, Big Data, and Administrative Records; Multicultural, Multilingual, and Multinational Research; AAPOR’s History; Research in Practice; and Qualitative Research.
Despite the uncertainty facing all of us right now, one thing is clear—the 2021 AAPOR Annual Conference will continue to provide insights into cutting-edge research on important methodological and public opinion topics. Submit your abstract today!
