AIMRI Meeting – “Panel research revisited”

Friday 5 March 2010 – Rome

What is the AIMRI meeting about?

How are panels formed and administered? What are the advantages? Can we be sure that the panel is representative? Can research methods be mixed? Problems with overlapping panels. How to retain the enthusiasm of the panellists?

Those who wish to make a short presentation should contact Richard Chilton at the address below and provide a brief synopsis. We also have some advantageous sponsorship and trade stand packages Please apply to Richard Chilton if you are interested.

The conference will be held in the Imperiale Hotel, a prestigious 4 star establishment in the centre of Rome, on the Via Veneto.

The classical style of the façade is part of the artistic history of the city. Its elegance is also celebrated in the famous movie “La Dolce Vita” by Federico Fellini who made Via Veneto the heart of the glamorous life during the 60s and today the most exclusive bars and restaurants are located in this street. The Hotel has recently been refurbished to offer the greatest comfort - maintaining the typical charm of an historical building.

The prestigious and refined furniture, and the beautiful boiserie of the dining rooms makes the Imperiale Hotel one of the most famous hotels in the city – renowned for attention to detail and quality of service. It is convenient for sightseeing and shopping.

Rome is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the European Union. Visitors come from around the world to see world-famous landmarks such as the Colosseum, the Forum and the Pantheon. Other popular sights are the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps and the Piazza Navona.

At Vatican City, visitors can visit St Peter's Cathedral and enjoy its fountains, statues and the beautiful dome. At the Vatican Museum, you won't want to miss the masterpieces of Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael or the Sistine Chapel

Why not stay for the weekend and enjoy the unique sites in this city.
