The theme of this year’s conference emphasizes how the Internet provides challenges and opportunities for public opinion scholars and how the Internet is changing (the study of) public opinion. The Internet has become a platform for the expression and representation of public opinion, a factor in public opinion formation, and is also used to collect public opinion data. The Netherlands is home to several pollsters using Internet panels and this topic will be devoted extra attention at the conference.
