Survey Research Methods Section Offers Student Awards, Session Proposals

1 October 2019 81 views No Comment

The Survey Research Methods Section (SRMS) offers student travel awards for students in any terminal degree program (bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral) in survey methodology or survey research disciplines.

Support is offered for student attendance at the Joint Statistical Meetings (JSM), to be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, from August 1–6, 2020. Preference is given to students presenting a paper or poster at the conference. In addition to a short essay and college transcripts, applications must include a letter of recommendation by a current SRMS member.

Typically, awards of up to $825 are given, which includes $800 for JSM expenses and $25 for student membership in the ASA (student membership in SRMS is free). Award recipients are expected to attend JSM sessions and the SRMS business meeting/mixer to be recognized by the section.

Application forms are available. Previous SRMS student travel award winners and previous SRMS student paper competition winners are not eligible for this award.

The deadline for applications is December 16. Questions should be sent to Darcy Steeg Morris.

JSM 2020 Topic-Contributed Session Proposals

JSM 2019 may just be behind us, but it is time to organize your potential JSM 2020 topic-contributed session; proposals can be submitted online between November 12 and December 10.

Topic-contributed sessions include papers (five speakers with 20 minutes each, with at least three presenters and no more than two discussants), panels (3–6 panelists providing commentary about a topic), and posters (10–15 participants with posters addressing a common topic).

A topic-contributed session proposal includes a session title, general description of the session, list of participants, and tentative talk titles. 

If you are interested in organizing a topic-contributed session, select a session topic and solicit potential speakers. Once you have a sufficient number of committed speakers, submit your proposal.
