International Population Data Linkage Conference 2016
Location: The Great Hall, Swansea University Bay Campus, Wales
Linking Data - Improving Lives
‘Big Data’ and its potential to improve health and society is much discussed across the world. Linking disparate population-scaled datasets together is a key technique in the production of powerful new data resources that can illuminate, evaluate and steer policy and practice right across society.
However, with this work comes the responsibility to build trustworthy and well-governed approaches that safeguard privacy at all times. Opportunities for new infrastructures and architectures present themselves, new analytical techniques are needed, and a cadre of people equipped with a new blend of skills is required.
This unique conference is designed to provide researchers, policy makers, practitioners, administrators, regulators, and data guardians opportunities to learn more about the cutting edge work that is underway across the world, together with a chance to showcase their own achievements, and listen to talks from international leaders in the field.
It is a great pleasure to be able to host this important international event in Wales this year, as part of its bi-annual journey around the world. We hope you will take the opportunity to join us either by submitting an abstract of your work, or by attending as a delegate.
