Hi Folks,

Are you interested in testing your theories using experiments? It’s much
easier than you think! At Volunteer Science
we’ve been running experiments on social networks for more than a decade.
We'll be sharing our experience in creating high-powered network
experiments and recruiting participants at a workshop at Sunbelt 2019. If
you've ever been interested in doing online experiments, now is the time to
learn the tricks of the trade.

The first half of the workshop is the *Design** Session*. There you will:

   - *Learn* the basic design trade-offs for network experiments and their
   impact on study quality and feasibility.
   - *Learn* methods for prototyping your study to ensure you build it
   right the first time.
   - *Learn* what works for recruiting groups of participants both for free
   and from paid pools like Mechanical Turk.
- *Receive* our guide for designing and conducting online experiments you
   can refer back to.

In the second, *Build Session* of the workshop, you will:

   - *Learn* the basics of interactive web-design using html, css, and
   - *Learn* how to create interactive interfaces for single and
   multi-player experiments.
   -  *Receive* an account on Volunteer Science to create your own studies.

You do not have to attend both sessions. If you are not ready to code your
own study, you can just attend the first half. If you’re just looking to
take your human subjects research online, you can attend the second half.

*Register Now! *Discounts for early registration expire March 31st.
Ours is the workshop titled "Designing and Conducting Online Lab
Experiments on Social Networks"
