When: Thursday, December 6, 13.00-15.00

The Digital Communication Methods Lab, part of the RPA Communication, is organising a discussion session with researchers from Ohio State University, Universiteit Utrecht, University of California Davis, Vrije Universiteit as well as the UvA, about opportunities (and concerns) for collecting digital trace data to complement survey data in the GDPR era. This is a follow up to the Digital Tracking Workshop 2018 (http://ccs.amsterdam/digitaltrackingworkshop18.html).

This is a working session, in which opportunities and technical issues will be discussed in an informal manner. Presentations will be kept to a minimum, to maximize discussion and knowledge sharing. The main topics are the opportunities for using the GDPR’s right for data portability to have respondents download and share their own trace data (e.g., from Google, or Facebook), or in the usage of trackers to collect (semi-automatically) data from respondents, complementing self-reports.
