Big Data Meets Survey Science (BigSurv20)

Posted: 11/30/2019 (Conference)

The second international conference on Big Data Meets Survey Science (BigSurv20) is currently accepting abstracts and session proposals on the theme, “Continuing to Explore New Statistical Frontiers at the Intersection of Big Data and Survey Science.” The call for abstracts and session proposals closes on February 13, 2020

 BigSurv20 Overview: BigSurv20 will be held November 4-6, 2020, at Utrecht University, in Utrecht, The Netherlands. The conference offers an opportunity to address the ongoing paradigm shift in how researchers produce, analyze, and use statistics. The event is intended to foster communication, collaboration, and understanding between two groups: (1) computer and data scientists focusing on Big Data sources and analysis techniques, and (2) methodologists and social science researchers working with traditional sources of data collection and statistical analyses. By uniting efforts, we can identify and overcome academic divides and make unified “Big Survey Data” population inference a reality. Utrecht is located a convenient 25-minute train ride from Amsterdam airport, and has excellent train connections to the rest of Europe. 

Abstract Information: To be considered for the conference, presentations and papers should be broad and forward-looking; they may be original research or syntheses of the state of the art. The conference is organized along 12 presentation tracks.
