WAPOR (World Association for Public Opinion Research) 71st Annual Conference, 2018

Submission Process

Proposals for the conference should be submitted electronically by January 5th, 2018. Only proposals submitted through this website will be considered.

Abstracts should not exceed 500 words. All submissions must be in English, and all accepted works are to be presented in English. WAPOR will accept two types of submissions:

Individual Research Proposals generally include a description of the research project with specific research questions or hypotheses, methods and results, if available at the time of submission.

Most individual research papers will be presented orally in a regular session format. However, we wish to explore the possibility of having a poster session at the Marrakesh conference. The poster session is intended to serve participants who prefer this format for various reasons. The submission system will ask submitters to indicate whether they prefer to give an oral presentation or present their work at the poster session.

Panel Proposals typically comprise four or five presentations around a common theme. The submission of panel proposals requires that:

  • (1) The panel organizer submits an “overview proposal” and selects “PANEL” as the type of submission. This submission should be titled “PANEL: [name of proposed session]“. The organizer will be asked to provide the names and emails of authors and their respective paper titles together with the panel description. Upon submission, the panel will be assigned a Panel ID number. That number must be used by those submitting abstracts as part of the panel. This panel submission must be done BEFORE the separate abstracts are submitted. The panel organizer is responsible for providing the panel id number to each presenter.
  • (2) Each presenter must submit his/her own individual abstract online (as above, for individual research proposals). When submitting their abstract, individual presenters need to enter the Panel ID number provided by the panel submitter.
