"I was particularly impressed by the immense practical relevance of the research projects presented. One focus was on improving sample recruitment and the design of online surveys. In particular, the use of mobile devices as well as the collection and use of trace data in this context were key aspects of some research projects", says Tanja Burgard, PhD student at ZPID and a jury member of the GOR poster award. ZPID had sponsored the award. 

34 posters had to be evaluated. First place was awarded to Stephan Schlosser (University of Göttingen), Jan Karem Höhne (University of Mannheim) and Daniel Qureshi (University of Frankfurt) for their poster "SurveyMaps: A sensor-based supplement to GPS in mobile web surveys". The award is endowed with 500 Euro. 

The winners developed a plugin for mobile web surveys. SMaps is an extension of GPS data and creates precise motion profiles based on sensor data. Due to the increase in mobile web surveys, the tool is a valuable contribution in improving the collection of paraded data. 

In addition to her work as a jury member, Tanja Burgard gave a presentation herself. The title: "Moderators of panel conditioning effects. A meta-analysis." The presentation is available via ZPID's disciplinary repository, PsychArchives.

The GOR is hosted by the German Society for Online Research (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Online-Forschung e. V.)  (DGOF). It supports, among other things, the further development of online research and the interests of online researchers in Germany.
