We are pleased to invite you to the Social Research Association's annual
conference on Monday 10 December 2012 at the British Library in London.

The digital revolution increasingly affects how we do social research.  It
brings fresh opportunities and challenges in every area, from new data
collection tools and methods to innovations in the way that findings are
analysed, presented and shared. This year’s SRA annual conference brings it
all together, with perspectives from across the academic, non-profit and
commercial research sectors.

A wide range of topics will be covered in plenary and workshop sessions,
including data visualisation, video ethnography, online longitudinal
panels, analysing visual data, using social media, digital inclusion, and
maximising the impact of research.

* Plenary speakers:  Dr Grant Blank (University of Oxford), Vanessa Cuthill
(ESRC), Nick Leon (Naked Eye Research), lan Smith (ONS Data Visualisation
* Confirmed panellists: Richard Bartholomew (GSR), Michelle Harrison,
(TNS-BMRB), Karl Wilding (NCVO).
* Confirmed workshop speakers include:  Vicki Belt (CES), Lisa Calderwood
(IoE), Andrew Charlesworth (ONS), Helen Lomax (Open University), Jerry
Latter (Ipsos Mori), Peter Lynn (ISER), Rob Procter (University of
Manchester), Liam Reynolds (Shelter), Nicki Senior (University of
Manchester), Heather Wardle (NatCen Social Research).
