ICPSR Webinar on working with IRB's

For those of you who follow the IASSIST Interest Group on Human Subjects Review Committees and Privacy and Confidentiality in Research, you might be interested in this webinar:

Amy Pienta and Kaye Marz of ICPSR's National Addiction and HIV Data Archive Program will present a webinar on Nov. 28 titled "Navigating Your IRB to Share Research Data."

They will share guidelines for working with Institutional Review Boards to release data that may contain sensitive information, such as studies on substance abuse. This session will be relevant both to older data collections, which may not have been designed with sharing in mind, as well as newer studies that may have more complex designs. Please join us by reserving a seat at https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/225075386.

Now Accepting Proposals for IASSIST 2013

IASSIST 2013 will be hosted by GESIS – Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences at Maternushaus in Cologne, Germany from May 28-31.

The Conference Website can be accessed here: http://www.iassist2013.org/iassist-2013-home/

As announced previously, the theme of this year’s conference is Data Innovation: Increasing Accessibility, Visibility and Sustainability

This theme reflects recent efforts across the globe by the largest government agencies down to the smaller independent research units to make data (be it survey, administrative, geospatial, or scientific) more open, accessible and understandable for all.

With an ever-increasing availability of new technologies offering unparalleled opportunities to sustainably deliver, share, model and visualize data, we anticipate that there is much to share with and much to learn from one another.  Interdisciplinarity is a large part of where innovation comes from, and we hope to receive submissions from those in the social sciences, humanities, sciences, and computer science fields.

We welcome submissions on the theme outlined above, and encourage conference participants to propose papers and sessions that would be of interest to a diverse audience. In order to make session formation and scheduling more streamlined, we have created three distinct tracks.  If you are not sure where your submission fits, or feel that it fits into more than one track, that’s perfectly fine. Please do still make your submission, and if accepted, we will find an appropriate fit.

Online submission forms and guidelines for BOTH conference content and workshops are be found here: http://www.iassist2013.org/conference/calls/

NOTE: The top of the page is for sessions/papers/posters/round tables/pecha kuchas the bottom is for workshops – please note that the submission forms are completely separate.

All submissions are due by December 5, 2012.  Notification of acceptance will be made by February 5, 2012

Questions about session/paper submissions may be sent to iassist.twentythirteen@gmail.com
Questions about workshop submission may be sent to the Workshop Coordinator, Lynda Kellam at lmkellam@uncg.edu
