The international Population Data Linkage Conference

Based at the Bay Campus which has just been formally opened by HRH the Prince of Wales, the three day event includes a packed programme of keynotes, poster presentations, networking, rapid fire presentations, pre-conference workshops, a collaboration wall, social activities and tours.

Produced in collaboration with the Farr Institute of Health Informatics Research, and the Administrative Data Research Network, this unique conference is designed to provide researchers, policy makers, practitioners, administrators, regulators, and data guardians the opportunities to learn more about the cutting edge work that is underway across the world.  The event will also offer a platform for them to showcase their own achievements, and listen to talks from international leaders in the field.

The event, which will take over the whole of our prestigious Great Hall building for three consecutive days is aimed at:

  • Data Analysts who use large linked datasets to help understand society, human health, and well-being, such as: researchers and analysts in Universities, the private sector, not-for profit and community organisations, public policy makers in local and national governments
  • Those who enable the use of linked data, including: technical experts working on linking, merging and preparing large complex datasets, technologists and statisticians developing new analytic methods, privacy, information governance and regulatory experts
  • Users of the results of linked data analyses, including: leaders of organisations interested in social policy, health and human development, leaders in industry that develop products and knowledge in these areas.

Mike O’Carroll, Acting Event Services Manager at Swansea University said: “we’re delighted to have the opportunity to host this important international research conference at our Bay Campus. We feel the prestigious new campus is the perfect backdrop for the event and wish all the delegates and contributors a very warm welcome to Wales and to Swansea.”
