Press/Media: Press / Media

Description

Applied statistics and data science play a vital role in the analysis and evaluation of policies in various fields including social sciences, economics, health sciences, population studies etc. On the other hand, with society apparently expecting more and more from all three levels of government; it becomes increasingly important that both private and public policy should be based on reliable and up-to-date data that covers the important issues. This conference aims to promote research collaborations and exchange ideas between data scientists, applied statisticians and data modellers 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. This conference is organised by the Data Science Research Unit (DSRU) within the School of Computing and Mathematics at Charles Sturt University (CSU).

This conference is sponsored by the Australian Government’s Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities and the School of Computing and Mathematics and the Faculty of Business, Justice and Behavioural Sciences at CSU.
