With a little over a month until the event, the speaker and presentation line up for the 2019 Data Analysts’ Conference is now confirmed.
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 topics including data science and measuring behaviour.
The agenda is now complete and includes Richard Fernandes from Atkins Global, who will discuss 20mph limits – referencing the recently published DfT/Atkins report.
Wouter Van den Berghe, research director at VIAS Institute, will shine a light on how the UK compares in global comparisons of road user attitudes, while David Davies, executive director of PACTS, will outline the case for the introduction of road safety performance indicators.
A focus on vulnerable road users is provided by Nicola Wass from SOMO, looking at adult pedestrians in Liverpool, and Dr Rachel Aldred who will cover data on cycling injury risk.
The event will once again be supported by Jenoptik Traffic Solutions, who are continuing as headline sponsor.
Jenoptik is a world leader in innovative and industry-leading solutions for the Intelligent transportation systems market – providing a range of services from ‘out of box’ camera products, though to fully managed service delivery applications.
Jeremy Phillips, Road Safety GB’s director of research, said: “Analysts are critical to targeting, devising, and evaluating road safety interventions – whether they come from highway authority, police, fire and rescue or consultancy backgrounds.
“With clients spanning education, enforcement and engineering it’s never been more critical that analysts are supported and inspired through events such as Joining the Dots.
“This fourth edition of the Joining the Dots fully establishes it as the principal event of its kind for both analysts and their clients.”
Delegate registration is open – with a discounted rate of £89 for Road Safety GB and MAST members, and £125 for other attendees (both prices plus VAT).
