3rd Annual Modern Modeling Methods (M3) Conference 2014

  • Conference Call
  • The Neag School of Edu­ca­tion at the Uni­ver­sity of Con­necti­cut (UConn) is kindly invit­ing you to par­tic­i­pate in the 2014 Mod­ern Mod­el­ing Meth­ods (M3) Con­fer­ence, held May 20 – 21, 2014 in Storrs, Con­necti­cut, United States at the Nathan Hale Inn & Con­fer­ence Cen­ter.

    Con­fer­ence Setup

    The Mod­ern Mod­el­ing Meth­ods (M3) con­fer­ence is an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary con­fer­ence designed to show­case the lat­est sta­tis­ti­cal mod­el­ing meth­ods and to present research related to these method­olo­gies. A full day pre­con­fer­ence work­shop by Bengt Muthen will be held on May 19th, and a full day post-​conference work­shop will be held on May 22nd.

    We are cur­rently solic­it­ing both method­olog­i­cal research papers and papers that illus­trate method­olog­i­cal tech­niques in the area of mod­el­ing, broadly defined. Papers related to mul­ti­level mod­el­ing, struc­tural equa­tion mod­el­ing, mix­ture mod­el­ing, lon­gi­tu­di­nal mod­el­ing, and item response the­ory are espe­cially encour­aged. Given the inter­dis­ci­pli­nary focus of the con­fer­ence, it is com­pletely accept­able to present papers that have been pub­lished or pre­sented else­where. We also wel­come pro­pos­als for multi-​paper sym­posia on the­mat­i­cally grouped topics.

    Con­fer­ence pro­pos­als for the Mod­ern Mod­el­ing Meth­ods con­fer­ence may fall into one (or more) of four categories:

    • Method­olog­i­cal Inno­va­tion — Intro­duces a new technique.
    • Method­olog­i­cal Appli­ca­tion — Presents the meth­ods and results of a real research study in which the tech­nique is used.
    • Method­olog­i­cal Illus­tra­tion — A “teach­ing talk”. Pro­vides a ped­a­gog­i­cal illus­tra­tion of when and how to use the tech­nique; designed to help the audi­ence be able to imple­ment the tech­nique themselves.
    • Method­olog­i­cal Eval­u­a­tion — presents the results of empir­i­cal research eval­u­at­ing a method­ol­ogy. Most often, these will involve sim­u­la­tion studies.

    Sub­mis­sion Details

    Method­olog­i­cal Research pro­pos­als should be no longer than 1,000 words and should include pur­pose, back­ground, meth­ods, results, dis­cus­sion, and sig­nif­i­cance. Method­olog­i­cal Illus­tra­tion papers should be no longer than 1,000 words and should include a descrip­tion of the method­ol­ogy to be illus­trated as well as an out­line of the paper/​talk.

    There are three dif­fer­ent types of pre­sen­ta­tions: Paper ses­sions (in which authors sub­mit a paper), Sym­posia (in which a group of authors sub­mit a set of related talks/​papers), and posters. Pro­pos­als for sym­posia should be include titles, authors, and brief descriptions/​abstracts for all of the paper pre­sen­ta­tions within the sym­po­sium. Sym­po­sium pro­pos­als may be longer than 1,000 words if needed, but they should be less than 2,000 words. In addi­tion, we will hold a poster ses­sion and recep­tion on May 21st. Grad­u­ate stu­dents are also encour­aged to sub­mit pro­pos­als, espe­cially poster ses­sions. All pro­pos­als should be sub­mit­ted electronically.
