The theme of the 2020 Conference is 'SICSA and the Sustainable Society'. Talks will be given by high profile research leaders from within Scotland and beyond, as well as showcasing the depth of talent of tomorrow’s leading researchers within our PhD community.
Professor Nick Bailey will be the second keynote (11:45-12:30) in the Data Science session. His presentation on 'Doing data science for Sustainable Societies' will focus on the work of the Urban Big Data Centre. From our efforts over the last six years, we have amassed a wide experience in the challenges of delivering research and analysis to support policies for Sustainable Societies. This presentation will reflect on that experience and, in particular, the many challenges in doing effective, impactful urban data science.
