14.00 | 30 October | | 0 comment

Delegate registration for the 2019 Data Analysts’ Conference is now open – with the agenda for the one-day conference starting to take shape.

Organised by Road Safety GB in partnership with Agilysis, the fourth edition of ‘Joining the Dots’ will take place in London on 5 March 2019.

The theme for the 2019 event is ‘the Transformative Power of Data’, with the programme focusing on ‘hot topics’ such as data science and behaviour change.

Among the speakers already confirmed is Wouter Van den Berghe from the Vias Institute (Belgium), who will discuss the Global ESRA initiative – a project designed to provide scientific support to road safety policy making at the national and international levels.

There will also be a presentation on a study produced for Liverpool City Council, which will demonstrate how partnership working and supplementary data was used to enrich STATS19 analysis and understand why dangerous behaviours were occurring.

The conference will also welcome the winner of the International Transport Forum’s 2018 young researcher of the year, Dr George Ursachi, who will showcase how his creative use of data was used to improve public policy.

Jeremy Phillips, Road Safety GB’s director of research, said: “From international experts on attitudinal data to the growing role of data science in UK road transport, this year’s conference will give delegates new tools, techniques and insights that could transform their work.

“Our ambition for these conferences remains one of influencing and supporting the work of both data client and data analyst – and I’m confident each will find a great deal of value on the 2019 agenda.”

Delegate registration is now open – with a discounted early bird rate of £89 for Road Safety GB and MAST members, and £125 for other attendees (both prices plus VAT).
