Australia and New Zealand Regional Science Association International 45th Annual Conference 2022

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventConference/SymposiumAcademic


The overwhelming growth of data and its users is a reality, which has put new thoughts among the research community to devise new ideas for giving data driven evidenced-based policy decisions at local, state, national and international level. In recent years, regional statistics and data science have received renewed interest from a broad range of stakeholders ranging from Governments to corporations and end users of data and its analysis or modelling tools. As a result, regional development, and modelling, applied statistics and data science research such as housing and labour force dynamics, geospatial modelling, artificial intelligence, data mining and policy analysis have been placed high as a local, state and national priority in many countries including Australia. In this data centric world with vastly growing demand situation,
there is a need to ensure that reliable regional priority-based analysis and data science-based modelling solutions that address important and emerging policy issues at both public and private institutions are disseminated timely and widely amongst the research and industry community.

The 45th Australia and New Zealand Regional Science Association International conference (ANZRSAI2022) aims to promote research collaborations and exchange ideas between regional research scientists and professionals, data modellers, applied statisticians and social scientists who will detail the latest innovations in research to gather and disseminate information from small to big data settings, and from policy analysts who will describe how they use existing information from increasing big data environments and indicate areas in which there need to be methodological and technological developments. Another aim is to establish connections between researchers at tertiary institutions and working in industry in Australia and overseas. The theme of ANZRSAI2022 is "Data Science in Regional Policy: Housing and Workforce Dynamics".
