September 12th/13th, 2013: 3rd International Conference in Bremen: "Survey methods in future research."
How will survey research looks like in the future? Is the current state of the art of survey methodology and statistics already well prepared to cope with the demands of future survey research? What research questions should be addressed now to cope with expected future demands? The 3rd International Conference of the German Priority Programme on Survey Methodology (PPSM) conference calls for papers that shed light on these questions in perspective by discussing recent attempts at handling one or other of research questions currently involved in that broader frame of reference.

Scientific surveys represent an indispensable instrument of social research. In view of the list of errors that may threaten survey quality, there exists a continuing need of research on survey methods. This applies all the more, the more social change and technological progress challenge the present way of conducting survey research.
