We are pleased to announce that our keynote speaker is Courtney Kennedy, Director of Survey Research at the Pew Research Center.

CIPHER 2019 will focus on new approaches to the design and use of probability-based Internet and mixed-mode panels for research and policy, and the potential and challenges ahead.  We are pleased to invite abstract submissions for oral presentation and discussion at CIPHER 2019 in Washington DC.
