Dear all,

Please also forward this email to anyone you think might be interested at your institutes.

For those who already completed the doodle, if you ticked ‘yes’ (rather than ‘maybe’), I’ve already put your name on the list.

Best wishes

Jacquie and Romain for the Online Studies Workgroup.




Workshop on web-based behavioural experiments

Online testing can provide large amounts of data required to feed machine-learning algorithms and study populations that are otherwise hard to reach. Familiarize yourself with key concepts, tools and techniques to develop your web experiments. Check the preliminary program below.

Why web-based behavioral experiments?

Browser performances and quality of online data

Landscape of existing tools and associated dilemmas

Regulatory considerations

Common challenges, dos and don'ts


Open discussion (30 minutes)

A moment to make questions and share your experiences/hopes/fears regarding online experiments
