2. Indicate the Workshop You Plan to Attend
W1 Capturing the Vicissitudes of Life: Electronic Experience-Sampling. Lisa Feldman Barrett and Larry Jamner
This workshop will introduce researchers to the logical and practical issues involved with implementing computerized experience-sampling procedures. This workshop is designed to help those considering experience sampling methods to integrate newly developed or emerging technologies into their research programs. Using examples of real-time data collection from handheld computer diary systems, the workshop will cover the specifics of study design, implementation, and data analysis. The impact of information technologies on behavioral research strategies/paradigms will be discussed.
W2 Functional Neuroimaging in Personality and Social Psychology. Steve Sutton and Nancy Kanwisher
This workshop will present the tools and methods of functional brain imaging. One goal is to help personality and social psychologists become better consumers of the ever-growing functional neuroimaging literature. A second goal is to provide the theoretical and practical information necessary for interested investigators to propose a functional neuroimaging study. We will focus on functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and positron emission tomography (PET), with other technologies and methodologies (e.g., EEG) receiving less attention. Prospects and problems will be highlighted using examples drawn from past and current studies in cognitive, affective, and social neuroscience.
W3 Using the Web for Research in Social and Personality Psychology. Ken McGraw and Scott Plous
Have you considered using the World Wide Web for your research? This workshop will cover the pros and cons of Internet-based studies, including the unique opportunities and hazards of web experimentation. Using PsychExps and Social Psychology Network as examples, the workshop will offer nuts and bolts information on how to design effective web sites, publicize them widely, and translate participant responses into a data file that can be analyzed statistically.
W4 Multivariate Taxometric Procedures. Niels Waller
Multivariate taxometric procedures are increasingly being used in the social and biological sciences to test competing models of latent structure. These procedures are uniquely suited for determining whether a pool of indicators measure a latent dimensional (latent factors, latent traits) or typological (natural kinds, classes, nonarbitrary clusters) construct. In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the underlying rationale of multivariate taxometrics through lectures and worked exercises with taxometric software. Dr. Waller recently coauthored the leading text on multivariate taxometrics with Dr. Paul Meehl.
