  "description": "<p>The Center for Socio Political Data (CDSP) created the ELIPSS web panel in 2012. Its probability-based sample and scientific purpose made the project the first of its kind in France. Its mobile web dimension made it the first in Europe.<br>\nThe CDSP&rsquo;s IT Team conceived and developed several survey panel tools for ELIPSS. For example, to support multi-channel interactions between the panel members and the panel managers, a set of features managing phone calls, electronic and traditional mail, text messages, and in-app notification messages were developed and integrated to the ELIPSS application suite over time. These interactions were captured in a massive set of raw data.<br>\nWe&rsquo;ll begin the workshop with a brief tour of the ELIPSS in-house application system. One of the challenges we dealt with was an important HR turnover. We&rsquo;ll give a feedback on the best practices we implemented in order to render the processes more fluid and assist the CDSP teams capture and release&nbsp;the data, DDI metadata and paradata of the project in due time. A DDI metadata creation exercise, to describe a paradata file, will end the first block of this session.<br>\nThe workshop will continue with a paradata visualization experiment. As previously mentioned, the ELIPSS application suite recorded the online and offline interactions between the panel managers and the panelists. Thus, a massive set of raw data were collected. We&rsquo;ll provide further insight on the curation and DDI-C metadata creation process we went through to manage a ready-to-use paradata set. We&rsquo;ll then invite participants to join a collaborative Jupyter Notebook to analyze and visualize it.<br>\nNo previous knowledge of the DDI standard is required to participate. This workshop is based on an experience of more than a decade of producing data and metadata collection tools and repositories at the CDSP.</p>",
