Questionnaire on-line conferencing experiences
We are a group of historians working on the history of scientific conferences within the HERA Joint Research Project “The Scientific Conference: A Social, Cultural, and Political History”. We are interested in their dynamics and the functions of physical gatherings. Now that the pandemic has caused many scientists to switch from physical meetings to online alternatives, we are interested in how this changes the experience and outcome of conferences. The questions below all pertain to the physical-to-online switch. Please note that they refer to scientific conferences in your wider research community, not meetings within your own institution.
The questions are designed to let you comment on one online conference you have participated in as alternatives for physical meetings. If you want to share experiences about more than one conference, please mark them a, b, c, etc.
Many thanks for taking the time to answer the questions! It should take about 10 minutes.
