Asian Political Methodology Meetings
We are pleased to hold the joint conference of the 6th Asian Political Methodology Meeting and the second annual meeting of the Japanese Society for Quantitative Political Science at Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan, on January 5 and 6, 2019. We aim to have a small, intensive two-day conference focusing on innovative quantitative methods and their applications. Although the conference seeks to promote the advancement of quantitative social science research in Asia, we hope to have all regions of the world represented at the conference.

Visions in Methodology Meetings
Visions in Methodology (VIM) supports women who study political methodology. In addition to providing a forum to share scholarly work, VIM connects women in a field where they are under-represented. VIM provides opportunities for scholarly progress, networking, and professional mentoring in research and teaching in order to support women in the political methodology community. Averaging about 30 participants, VIM's three-day conference feature research presentations and discussions on both methodological and substantive topics.
Past Visions in Methodology Meetings
- 2018 Conference at Ohio State University
- 2017 Conference at Stony Brook University
- 2016 Conference at UC Davis
- 2015 Conference at the University of Kentucky
- 2014 Conference at McMaster University
The National Science Foundation recently agreed to fund smaller thematic meetings similar in character to the annual summer conference 25 years ago. The Society is accepting proposals for these meetings.
