Support efforts to solve the challenge of combining Big Data and Survey Science

BigSurv18 will bring together international researchers, practitioners, and experts to address how promising technologies and methodologies for using massive datasets can improve, supplement, or replace data and estimates from complex surveys and censuses.

This conference will provide you with an opportunity to connect with individuals from around the globe who work in survey, market, and opinion research, statistics, data science, and computer science and to show them how you support innovation and data quality.

Presentations and short courses will cover tools and approaches for understanding the role and potential of Big Data to replace or complement some traditional data collections or to provide new kinds of information that will improve data quality and increase their utility. We will compile the conferenceā€™s best papers into a published a monograph volume and a computer science orientedĀ special issue to help carry these insights beyond the event.

We are on the precipice of a major paradigm shift in how social and statistical data is collected, analyzed, and used. Be a part of this groundbreaking opportunity to help establish that new future.
