Linking Data - Improving Lives
The 2018 IPDLN Conference will be held at the Banff Centre, located in Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. The conference will take place September 12-14, with a pre-conference day September 11. With our theme, Linking Data - Improving Lives, we have created a forum for the presentation and discussion of research and innovation in the area of Linked Population Data Science and Policy Impact. The overall themes build on previous work done by IPDLN as well as relevant emerging health data linkage areas such as such as data and linkage quality, data linkage methodology, pan-jurisdictional and cross-sectoral data linkage, emerging data types, privacy, regulation and governance, data analytics, and data linkage for policy development.
