EXTENDED: Call for Papers

Mixing Quantitative with Qualitative Methods. Current Practices in designing experiments, gathering data and analysis with mixed methods reporting.

Workshop at OzCHI 2017, Brisbane, Nov 28 2017


  • Submit October 14th October 28th
    • Send submissions to dllevaluation(at)gmail.com
  • Notification October 28th November 6th
    • For the final submission authors will be required to submit both the Word and PDF files to dllevaluation(at)gmail.com
  • Attend November 28th for a ½ day workshop (1-5 pm)

If you already work with or are considering, researching, or working with both quantitative and qualitative evaluation methods (in academia or industry), join us by submitting a paper 2-4 page position paper in the extended abstract format. The workshop will lead to a White Paper on the state of the art within this field in Australia, including comparative international studies.

We are interested in the theory and practice of implementing mixes of quantitative and qualitative methods to gain the richest results using rigorous practices. A skew to either end of the spectrum (i.e. more qualitative than quantitative (or vice versa) is to be expected and welcome and we will look for a balance through the contributions. Papers will be reviewed by the organizers based on relevance and likelihood to spark discussion at the workshop.

We will have a short KEYNOTE on a mix of quantitative methods from Andreas Duenser from CSIRO. We are planning another keynote on qualitative methods.

  • Methodologies for effectively mixing qual and quant into the experimental design stages and enabling efficient post collection processes
  • Establishing methods for collaboration & cooperation with differing schools of thought and practice with qualitative and quantitative data
  • Approaches to qualitative and quantitative evaluations where both can be more easily combined and visualised
  • Research approaches that utilise & make evident rigorous mixed method implementations
  • Effective use of technologies that allow efficient mixed methods gathering, analysis and reporting.
  • Effective practical means to assist with, assess, and expand on our understanding & appreciation of mixed methods evaluation
  • Case study exemplars that demonstrate effective approaches to triangulation in specific circumstances
  • The importance of a well-considered research procedure to assist with challenges and pitfalls when conducting mixed method approaches

Read the contributions of other participants as they become available. Contribute to the discussion here in our blog  to offer your insights about how you or others engage in this field and citing other studies enhancing mixed methods.


Be prepared to offer your insights about the contribution of other participants. We are designing a range of activities to facilitate networking and exchange of ideas.
