The French Road Safety Observatory, IRAP, the Road Safety Foundation, Imperial College London, the DfT, TRL and Lancashire County Council are among the organisations that will feature on the agenda at the 2020 edition of the Data Analysts’ Conference.
Organised by Road Safety GB in partnership with Agilysis, the fifth edition of ‘Joining the Dots’ will take place in Birmingham on 3 March 2020.
The event was attended by representatives from more than 60 organisations in 2019, and the 2020 edition is expected to attract in the region of 150 delegates.
The agenda is being put together with input from the recently formed Road Safety GB Champions’ Network – set up to support data analysts by sharing best practice and improving resources for the profession.
The conference themes include strategy and data pathways, as well as data science and its role in road safety analytics.
Speakers on the agenda include: Seema Yalamanchili, Imperial College London and Imperial College Healthcare Trust; Catherine Mottram, DfT; Caroline Wallbank, TRL; Paul Coward, RAC Breakdown; Heather Ward, University College London; and Bruce Walton, Agilysis.
The conference is intended to be suitable for:
- Data analysts working in road safety and related fields
- Road safety managers looking to appreciate the opportunities and benefits to be gained from good analytics in their team
- Data clients – anyone working in road safety who regularly uses collision, highways, transport or health data in their work and wanting to understand more about the state of the art in road safety data.
Jeremy Phillips, Road Safety GB’s director of research, said: “The people that play a key role in driving the industry are now driving the agenda for their own development, and I couldn’t be more pleased.
“We’ve come a long way since the first Joining the Dots conference in 2016. Then we had around 70 delegates but, fast forward to 2019 and we had nearly that many organisations represented by around 120 delegates.
“And we are anticipating an even bigger turnout in March 2020.”
Delegate registration is now open, with discounted rates available for Road Safety GB and MAST members. More information is available via the conference website.
The conference is CPD compliant and Road Safety GB can issue a certificate for one day of CPD for attendees.
