Since many of you are here for the conference anyway, we thought it might be a good idea to offer our Blaise 5 Layout Training in the week following the IBUC, so you can combine the two if so desired. You do not need to attend the IBUC to join the course.
If you are coming to the IBUC - and even if you're not, consider coming to our pre-conference day!
Whether you are new to it, already working with it, but looking for some practical tips, or if you are a real geek when it comes to Blaise 5, there is something for everyone!
This version includes the third version of Manipula, the second version of CATI, Field Properties, Custom Error Pages, a new Table Control and a few smaller additions. Furthermore, we have worked on a number of security issues, improved the iOS and Android apps, and solved many issues that were reported by our users.
The next International Blaise Users Conference promises to be a very exciting event, as it is about coping with the modern survey world, going far beyond Blaise as a system. Indeed, according the Call for Abstracts for this event one will certainly look forward to be up-to-date with the latest insights on
- Data collection on any device
- Expectations of a modern survey-taking system
- Multimode survey management
- Unimode versus Generalized Mode Questionnaire design
- (Re)training staff in an era of rapid change
- Multilingual, multicultural, multi-national and multi-version multiple mode surveys
Abstracts for the conference can be posted by the end of June. The complete list of suggested conference themes is published on the site of International Blaise Users Group.
We will also keep you posted with any additional news on this forthcoming event on this website.
