MAPOR is a great conference for graduate students, as it has a very high acceptance rate for student papers and provides good feedback for aspiring scholars. Many OSU graduate student papers presented at AAPOR have found their way into print. Below is an announcement on how to submit a paper proposal (300 words or less) by June 30th. In addition, students can enter their full papers into a competition in September for a prestigious best paper prize given out by the association each year.
Submission deadline: June 30
Don't forget to submit your abstract for the 2013 MAPOR conference to be held in Chicago, November 22-23, 2013! The call for papers, description of the student paper competition, and the new online abstract submission website are accessible at www.mapor.org.
We are excited to announce that our keynote speaker for the conference will be Lee Rainie from the Pew Internet & American Life Project. Additionally, Michael Siciliano (University of Illinois at Chicago) we will be teaching a short course: 'An Introduction to the Measurement and Analysis of Networks'. Be on the lookout for more information about the conference this summer.
Abstracts for papers, posters, or panels are due by midnight on June 30 and can be submitted at http://www.mapor.org/
