The International Population Data Linkage Conference 2018 is now closed


The 2018 International Population Data Linkage Conference held in Banff, Alberta, Canada was a great success, thanks to all the attendees and sponsors!

A record-setting 530 delegates from 17 countries attended the three-day IPDLN Conference. Our theme, Linking Data - Improving Lives, inspired discussion of research and innovation in the area of linked population data science and policy impact. The overall themes of the 461 abstracts presented built on previous work done by the 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.

We hope you found IPDLN 2018 valuable and it moves you to share your data linkage experiences with other like-minded people.

Remember the next IPDLN Conference is being hosted in 2020 in beautiful Adelaide, Australia! We look forward to seeing you all there!
