[BMS-RC33] Meeting - Questionnaire Design, Development, Evaluation & Testing (9-13 Nov 2016, Miami)

Oct 29 2016

Welcome to the 2016 International Conference on Questionnaire Design, Development, Evaluation, and Testing (QDET2).

QDET2 will provide a creative environment for researchers from across the world working in government, academia, and the private sector to share new solutions and fresh approaches to survey measurement, questionnaire design, and evaluation. The conference builds on the resounding success of the first QDET, held in 2002, and will be the first international conference in more than a decade devoted to both the design of survey questionnaires and the methods used for their development, evaluation, and testing.

November 09, 2016 - November 13, 2016
QDET2 in Miami, FL

Throughout four stimulating days, conference participants will hear about the following:

  • Challenges of designing survey instruments that collect 'good' data
  • New developments in pretesting and evaluation of survey questionnaires
  • Role new methodologies and technologies are playing in improving data collection and instrument testing
  • Methods available to improve survey instrument design

Participants will share experiences and learn from one another through focused sessions and workshops, including product demonstration. The conference will include keynote speeches from:
  • Mario Callegaro, Google, UK
  • Gordon Willis, National Institutes of Health

Participants will hear from other experts in survey methodology, learn about real-world case studies from survey agencies, and network with international peers and colleagues.

In advance of the conference, there will be opportunities to attend training courses for those relatively new to the field, as well as master classes in pretesting and question evaluation methodologies for those with more experience. At the end of the conference, workshops will be held to encourage and facilitate greater collaboration and develop future research agendas.

QDET2 2016 will offer two keynote sessions, concurrent sessions, poster sessions, exhibits, product demonstration, training classes, and workshops (where attendees can form collaborations for future working post-conference).
