_24th June 2019_ | Association of Internet Researchers (#AoIR) Symposium - Below the Radar: Private Groups, Locked Platforms and Ephemeral Content

The AoIR Symposium welcomes contributions that address these themes, including but not limited to the following questions:

- How do ethnographic and qualitative methods allow us to study such spaces?
- How have quantitative methods been utilised to study these environments – and with the closure of APIs, what new methods have emerged?
- To what extent, and for whom, is scraping viable in a “post-API era”?
- What ethical questions arise in relation to inclusion in semi-private spheres?
- How do these spheres specify and connect to public discourse?
- How might we approach questions of data validity and representativeness even as it becomes increasingly difficult to define the target universe of these conversations?

Submissions are due by _20 February 2019_

Anyway, the fun for Internet Researchers is not going to over on Monday. Have also a look at the immediately following conference:
